    Almost anything you do in the way of exersize will more than likely make whatever weakened them worse. Try Condroitin glucosamine and see a sports medicine doctor or a physical therapist.

    I tore two ligaments in my right knee a few months ago and these are the exercises my Physical Therapist gave me! They worked!1! Lay on your back on a bed or couch and try to press the back of your knees down into the bed using your thigh muscles only! Hold for five seconds then relax for five seconds! Do this ten times, relax for about five minutes and repeat!2! Lay on your side with your legs straight! Raise the upper leg to about 45 degrees slowly and hold for five seconds then slowly lower it! After ten Reps roll over and do the other leg! Do this ten times, relax for about five minutes and repeat!3! Lay on your back! Bend one knee and slowly raise your other leg (keep it straight) slowly until your thighs are at the same level, hold for five seconds and lower it slowly! Then repeat using your other leg! Do this ten times, relax for about five minutes and repeat!4!Do the same thing as #3 but this time drag your heal until both legs are bent at the same angle then slide your heal forward until your leg is straight again! Again, do this ten times then do the other leg! Do this ten times, relax for about five minutes and repeat!I hope this helps! It worked wonders for me and you are never putting any weight on your knees!I found it ironic that I played Football and Soccer all through High School, served with the 82nd Airborne for ten years and never had knee problems! I crouch down to fix some plumbing under the sink and screw up my knee!Getting old sucks!
