TOP 5 EXERCISES FOR MEDIAL MENISCUS PAIN

We are partnering with select gyms to keep our communities healthy, active and pain-free. Enjoy.

#1

Quadriceps Stretch

The quadriceps are located on the front of your thigh. When tight they add strain to the knee joint, particularly the meniscus and kneecap.

#2

Hamstrings Stretch

The hamstrings are located on the back of your knee(s). Tight hamstrings place excessive strain on the knee joint as a whole, increasing meniscal pain and irritation.

We're partnering with the world's best gyms to kick joint pain's butt.

#3

Inner Thigh Stretch

Tight adductors (inner thigh muscles) add strain to the inner knee, often leading to inflammation and pain.

#4

VMO Strength

This exercise  targets the "Vastus Medialis Oblique" or "VMO" musculature. This muscle is a critical stabilizer joint and often termed the "rotator cuff" of the knee.

#5

Quadriceps Strength

This exercise builds on the previous exercise by further strengthening the VMO and remaining quadriceps musculature.

BONUS

Knee Icing

Swelling can restrict knee range of motion, decrease strength and slow the healing process. Icing combined with rest and therapeutic exercises can jump start your recovery.
