Arthritis Treatment – Strength Training

June 25, 2011
Hamstring Curl

Hamstring Curl

Doctors and physical therapists both agree that increasing the strength of the anatomy surrounding your knee arthritis will help improve function and decrease pain.  The hamstrings are an important part of that anatomy.  Keeping your hamstrings loose and strong will help a lot!

One way to strengthen your hamstrings is with a hamstring curl.  These exercises can be performed with weights, an exercise ball or with a large elastic strap.  Check with your doctor or therapist to see if including hamstring curls in your strength training regiment is right for you.
