Knee is the most vulnerable joint in our body. That is why knee injuries are very common and that is why we need to strengthen our knee joint.
Water is the safest, and the most sufficient environment to strengthen your joints in general and your knee in particular. That is due to water buoyancy that supports your weight while working out.
In this post, we will explain how knee joints become stronger with exercising, and we will post some useful examples to follow.
When we move our knee joint against sufficient resistance, we strengthen the muscles and the ligaments which support it. We also increase knee's ligament elasticity. That is the role exercising plays in strengthening your knee joint.
It is also important to increase the bone density of your knee joint. Stronger bones will support your joint better. But that requires dry-land exercises because bone density is strengthened by creating an impact on your bone. The impact you create in the water is very low, due to water buoyancy. Only consider doing this if you have a healthy knee. An impact on a bad knee could have bad results.
The following are some of the selected exercises from our library to strengthen your knee joint and the muscle surrounding it. Click on each image to view the full exercise with animated display:
