Health Tip: Exercising With Knee Problems

Exercise may be just what the doctor ordered if you have knee pain.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons suggests:

  • Start out exercising slowly, and over time build up the duration and intensity of your workout.
  • While some discomfort is OK, pain is not. You should stop if you feel pain in your knee.
  • A little stiffness or soreness is OK, but significant pain the day after exercising probably means you’ve overdone it.
  • Talk to your doctor or physical therapist if you have questions about exercising with knee pain.
