Welcome to Dr. Matthew Boes’s Knee Arthritis Conditioning video. The goal of this video is to reduce stress on the knee and maximize pain-free function. This program targets thigh muscles, hamstrings, hip muscles and calf muscles to improve support and reduce stress on the knee, and is broken down into 3 phases:
STRETCHING to reduce tension and irritation in the knee
STRENGTHENING to improve stability and function
CARDIOVASCULAR EXERCISE to increase endurance

Please remember the following as you engage in this knee arthritis conditioning program:

These are easy exercises for knee arthritis that can be performed at your home.
Perform this knee arthritis workout program 3-4 times per week
Start with 5-10 minutes of low impact exercise such as walking, walking in place or stationary bike to get muscles warm and reduce chance of irritation or injury.
Perform all exercises on both legs – this will help prevent imbalance between the rehab and non-rehab knee.
Pain-relief modalities are essential throughout this program to help limit discomfort and allow you to progress with the exercises. These include:
Anti-inflammatory medications [NSAIDs]
Topical NSAIDs or analgesic ointments
Moist heat prior to exercise to loosen up stiffness
Icing for 5-10 minutes after exercise to limit inflammation
Knee compression sleeves

Hello. I'm James. It was a sad experience for me after I had found out I had been diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis. At first at the realization of the news, I was taken aback because I had never wanted to be in a position that would be difficult to handle. It was of some sad oddity to even realize that the pharmaceutical medication that was recommended was not favorable to me at all. My finger outlines were deformed and as I was hurt every single moment, the pain was unbearable and I was desperately in search of a permanent remedy to get rid of this dreadful disease called arthritis. I was soon to deviate another alternative in improving my condition naturally.

It was during my ceaseless search for a definite remedy that I stumbled across the professional works of Dr. Harry Obiego – an African herbal practitioner and natural healer whose works had surrounded natural herbs and their benefits from mostly Dr. Sebi's theory and who had completely saved me from Rheumatoid arthritis. An information was passed online of his professional experience in healing most incurable ailments via a naturopathic process. The content of the information had elaborated that the process of his healing was traditionally and naturally oriented and that the aforementioned herbalist had successfully cured a number of victims from most viral ailments such as Arthritis, Asthma-related problems, erectile dysfunction, paralysis, hepatitis B, lupus, and many other medical conditions via traditional methods of healing.

For proper understanding and guidelines, I had contacted this African herbalist with whose professional directions and his recommendations I was able to receive my healing naturally without any side effects at all and under only a little period of time.

I wish to use this opportunity to reach out to any person who by faith may stumble across this piece of information and who may be facing any health challenges currently, to hopefully reach out to this natural herbal healer for assistance in battling their health problems. I would highly recommend this African doctor's herbal medication to anyone battling any viral disease for proper medication in improving their conditions.

what about the standing-quad-stretch, if you have a torn meniscus (degenerative tear)? doesn´t hurt, to do it, but couldn´t it increase the tear?

I have arthritis primarily in my thumbs and sometimes have a hard time holding onto things or I`ve got trouble choosing things up. Given that I`ve been making use of this arthritis treatment “Rοngοdο Ruzο” (Google it), my range of flexibility is much better and I also don`t find myself sucking in my breath.
