Perform a slow chair-sit exercise twice daily to build strength in your quadriceps, which will help stabilize your knees.
- To do this, sit in a chair, keeping your back straight
- Focus your eyes on a point directly in front of you, and slowly rise to a standing position, taking at least five seconds to do so
- While you rise, do not round your back, but keep it straight, and do not hold onto the chair for support. Be sure to keep your knees pointing forward
- Once you have reached a standing position, slowly lower yourself back to the seated position in the same way, keeping your back straight and taking your time
30 repetitions, 2-3 times daily
