Exercises for Arthritis Pain Relief Thigh Muscle Strengthening Exercises for Arthritis Pain Relief
Hi! I am Monica. Another exercise I am goingto show you for strengthening the muscles around your hip and knee is going to be foryour adductor muscles or your muscles that are right on the inside of your thigh. Sogo ahead and find a good spot on the bed or on the floor, lie on your side and this timewe are going to be working the muscles on the right side of the leg so you are goingto want to straighten the right leg out underneath you, the left leg you just go ahead and bendand bring up where it is comfortable for you and the right leg you are just going to liftup. So just a small movement and not getting much. I am only lifting my leg about 68 inchesoff the ground. You should be feeling it right
along your inner thigh. You can come up andhold it for 35 seconds if you want to or just keep coming up all the way through. Youwant to make sure you are right on your side and that you are not rolling forwards or backwardswhile you are on your knees. You can also use cuff weights put around your ankle ifyou want a little bit more resistance.

Hi! I am Monica and this is the last exercisethat I am going to show you for arthritis is going to be more for the arthritis of theknee and it is going to be a calf strengthening exercise. So what you are going to want todo is do it bent leg first, and I will show you straight leg version, but have your feetunderneath the chair right upon your toes so that your heels are kind off the grounda little bit and then just lifting your heels off the ground. So nice and slow, nice andcontrolled, again it is a great strengthening exercise to do for your calves because youare not putting weight to your knees since you are standing. So you should be able totolerate a lot better than if your are going
to do a standing exercise, just up and down.You can put more weight just by leaning on your knees more. The other version you cando is with your knees straight you need to grab a belt or a long towel of some kind,you are going to stick it around your toes, straighten your leg and then just slowly tryand push your toe or point your toe while giving yourself a little bit of resistancethrough the belt right like that.
