Hey, I hope you are having a great day.
Yesterday was a holiday in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada as we celebrated B.C. Day. It was really a cool day because it was the first day that my son got up on a SUP (stand up paddle board). He struggled using it for the first five minutes but then after that he was like a pro moving all over the lake.
Today, I have a great exercise that you can do to help massage out your knee pain.
Enjoy the video and article below!
In today’s video, I wanted to go through the best knee pain massage exercise.
Best Knee Pain Massage Exercise
CLICK HERE to watch the YouTube video.
I got Andrea to demonstrate.
If there is tension in your quads, your muscles will shorten up. The shortening up of the muscles leads to pulling on the knee cap and the knee joint which results to knee pain. We will massage out the quads area in order to loosen up the quads and decrease that pull on the knee joint to get rid of knee pain.
Foam Rolling Out the Quads
Focus on rolling through the belly of the quads. And then rotate the leg inwards and outwards in order to target different areas of the quads.
Perform 1 set of 5 movements – rolling upwards is equivalent to 1 movement and rolling downwards is equivalent to 1 movement as well. You can progress to 10 movements. Hold the end position for about a second with light intensity. You should feel that your muscles are being massaged and just put enough weight on your quads. Do not overdo the massage.
