Can Exercise Help Knee Pain?

It doesn’t matter whether you are an experienced athlete, just starting a new exercise routine, or fall somewhere in the middle; knee issues can be limiting, painful and frustrating. You may think it’s best to rest your knees and take it easy, as exercise will only increase the pain. However, the opposite is actually true. Not moving your knees can actually make things worse, causing your knees to stiffen and thus worsening the pain. Knee pain, whether it is due to arthritis, an injury, overuse, or inflammation, can be soothed and even improved by simple stretches and exercise.
