Stretching the muscles around your knee will help take pressure off the knee joint. Calf stretches, hamstring stretches, and quad stretches are important to help relieve knee pain. If you’ve had a knee injury or surgery, sometimes you want to transition for a knee brace that might have hinges to something a little less before just a sleeve or nothing at all. The folks at Bracoo sent me their KP41 Patent Athletics Knee Compression Sleeve. It has some silicone support to help remind your muscles to work, but not as much as a hinged brace. Finally, exercises for the knee include seated LAQ (knee extension), seated hip flexion, and sit to stand. You can progress your sit to stand to squats when you are ready.
