What is the best exercise when you have arthritic knees?

You want to do exercise that is low impact, like walking, water exercises, riding a stationary bike, etc... Honestly, the best advice I can give you is to have your Dr write you a referral for 1-2 visits with a physical therapist. They'll be able to teach you specific exercises that will be good for your knees and ways to strengthen the surrounding muscles. I learned a lot of these after having my knee replaced and going through pt. They're pretty easy to do, but it really helped to have the therapist demonstrate them and show me exactly how far to go so I'd strengthen the muscles without undue pain or damage. You may think this is a little extreme, but it would really be with your time and effort. I hope you'll consider this option and that it helps you. I wish you the best of luck! :)
