Knee mobilization exercises for Edmonton patients

It’s not just athletes who can struggle with anterior knee pain. The tissues around your knees can get sticky and gummy and stop sliding properly when they should, causing anterior knee pain. You need a simple way to break up the sticky, gummy tissues.

You could benefit from knee mobilization exercises. This exercise will get into the tissues around your knee and make walking, jumping, and running more pleasant. All you need is a flat surface and a lacrosse ball.

1. Sit down on a flat surface with your active leg straight and non-active leg bent.
