Knee Osteoarthritis Exercise: Step Ups
Step-ups strengthen your legs, making it easier for you to do everyday things like climb stairs. You'll need an exercise step, or use a bottom stair in your house.
1. Stand in front of the stair with feet hip-width apart.
2. Step onto the stair with your right foot, then with your left foot.
3. Step down in reverse: Your left foot reaches the ground first, then the right foot.
4. Go at your own pace for about some seconds at a time. For balance, use a railing.
5. Repeat 5 – 10 times
