10 Of The Best Exercises For Knee Pain

5. Standing hamstring curls

Strengthens your hamstrings and the tissues behind your knee.

How to do them: Stand against the back of a chair or low wall and bend one knee as you bring that foot up toward your buttocks. Focus on keeping that knee pointed down toward the floor throughout the movement.

Hold the foot up near your buttocks for 5-10 seconds and then slowly lower your foot until it almost touches the floor and repeat for 12-15 repetitions and work up to 1-3 sets for each leg. Again, as you get stronger you can add an ankle weight to increase the difficulty and effectiveness.
