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 a cool day because it was the first day that my son got up on a standup paddleboard. He struggled using it for the first five minutes, but soon 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.

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, resulting in knee pain. We will massage out the quads area in order to loosen up the quads and decrease that pull on the knee joint.
Foam Rolling Out the Quads
Focus on rolling through the belly of the quads. And then rotate the leg inward and outward to target different areas of the quads.
Perform one set of 5 movements, rolling upward 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 one second with light intensity. You should feel like your muscles are being massaged, with just enough weight put on your quads. Do not overdo the massage.
Give this best knee pain massage exercise a go.
