If you suffer from knee pain, you know exactly how debilitating it can be. Keeping your knees healthy is extremely important because pain in your knees can have a drastic effect on your quality of life.
Unfortunately, arthritis is a common condition for many older people and the knees are often affected. But here’s a very simple exercise that can help to relieve the pain or sometimes even stop it completely. And it can also make you feel a lot younger!
Take a towel and fold it in the middle. Now sit down on a chair or a couch. Tuck the folded towel under your knee as tightly as possible and place the heel of your foot on the edge of the chair or couch that you’re sitting on.
With your leg in position, remove your hands and tighten your hamstring and calf muscles quickly at the same time. This will form a slight gap in your knee joint that should relieve or completely stop the pain.
