Patella Exercise to Avoid Locked Knees and Reduce Knee Pain
If you’re one of those folks who has a tendency to lock your knees, and may occasionally be bothered with knee pain… Here’s a video with a quick and easy exercise you can practice just about anywhere to help strengthen the muscles around the knee joint, become more aware of the difference between a locked and unlocked knee, and learn how to stabilize a straight knee without locking the joint.
The benefits of this simple kneecap dance exercise include: Less time standing with your knees locked, stronger quadriceps, freer movement of the leg, and better tracking of the patella (knee cap), which all help to reduce knee pain.
Have fun playing with your dancing kneecaps!
