  10. whew! That was some exercise for my knees. I did one set of ten reps of each. The last one I was able to just do 5 each knee lol.. Well hard cus I got knee injury from car crash along with lower back and glute injury 😒

  11. Hi Dr. Jo. I have a question. I got an x-ray on my right knee and it came back showing nothing significant. Basically normal. However, my right knee gets fatigued, feels rubbery/hollow sometimes and it has buckled slightly in the past, but no pain. I've been wearing an open patella neoprene knee brace for support and that helps. I find it deloads it and allows active rest/recovery. I have mild genu varum and the x-ray showed the Q-angle was a little greater on right side. I just did a tape measure on my mid-patella and my right is 1/2 inch bigger at 14 inches and my right is 13.5 inches. Is this clinically significant or relevant? I couldn't find any norms online.

  12. Hi Dr.Jo , I have little cracking/popping sound in my right knee with no pain
    Will these exercises help me get rid of the cracking ?
