In sports one can play doubles tennis and not singles. One can also participate in downhill or cross–country skiing.

The maximum stress–producing exercises are jogging and golf swings.

Impact

  • Biking generates the least force, producing impact of about 1.3 times the person’s body weight.
  • Treadmill walking was next best, producing forces of 2.05 times the body weight.
  • Walking on level ground generated forces of 2.6 times the body weight.
  • A game of tennis produces forces of 3.1 to 3.8 times the body weight; serving produces the highest impact.
  • Jogging produced forces of 4.3 times body weight.
  • Golf swings produces forces of 4.5 times body weight on the forward knee and 3.2 times body weight in the opposite knee

• Jogging produces forces of 4.3 times body weight.

• Golf swings produces forces of 4.5 times body weight on the forward knee and 3.2 times body weight in the opposite knee. Positions and activities that place excessive pressure on the knee joint include:

• Squatting and kneeling

• Twisting and pivoting

• Repetitive bending (multiple flights of stairs, getting out of a seated position, clutch and pedal pushing, etc.)

• Jogging

• Aerobics, dancing

• Playing stop and go sports (basketball, sports that use racquets)

• Swimming using the frog or whip kick Exercise equipments that place excessive pressure on the knee include:

• Stair stepper

• Stationary bicycle

• Rowing machine

• Universal gym utilizing leg extensions

The preferred exercise equipment for the knee should provide smooth motion of the knee, maximal toning of the front and back thigh muscles (quadriceps and hamstring muscles), minimal jarring and impact to the joint and the least amount of bending to accomplish toning.

Activities that are acceptable alternatives to the above include:

• Fast walking

• Water aerobics

• Swimming using the crawl stroke

• Cross country ski machines

• Soft platform treadmill

• Trampoline
