Physical Therapy Videos Put Together By Real Orthopedic Specialists To Help You Recover And Stay Injury-Free.

Strengthen the muscles that move and support the hip and knee.


Wearing Bauerfeind's GenuTrain knee support during this exercise provides stability and relief from pain and swelling.

Begin standing fully upright on feet spread shoulder-width apart.

Place a kettle bell of a weight appropriate to your ability at your feet. Keeping your feet flat on the floor, squat down by bending at the hips and knees.

Grasp the kettle bell handle with both hands and with elbows kept straight return to the standing position.

Avoid slumping and slouching to protect your back against injury. Keep your knees positioned directly above your feet and your heels planted on the ground.

Repeat the upward and downward movements in a steady, controlled fashion.

Relax and repeat as your ability allows.
