Hamstring Stretch

Hamstring Stretch

Quadriceps, hamstrings, and hip flexors all play a role in how your knees feel.  The tighter these muscles are the more your arthritis can hurt.

Remember that stretching should never be painful, and that anyone can stretch.  Stretching is an important part of exercising and should be an important part of the treatment plan for your knee osteoarthritis.

Along with exercise, weight loss, and a thorough working knowledge of how osteoarthritis effects your knees, stretching can be an important part of your daily routine.
