Knee problems?

I suffer from hypermobility and a connective tissue disorder and am becoming increasingly concerned about my knees. They just somehow feel fragile and if I kneel on them they make a strange sort of "clicking" sound. There is no pain however.

I am wondering if there is anythng I can do proactively or is it a case of wait until something happens (though hopefully it won't).

WDYT?

Re: Knee problems?

There are many kinds of exercises that help the muscles around the knee work better and aid in stabilization. I went through Physical Therapy about 2 years ago and the treatment did help.

Re: Knee problems?

Thanks for the reply. I do yoga - not sure whether that helps or not, though. Certainly I have to be careful with exercises which involve putting a lot of weight on the knee, and place a folded blanket rug on top of the mat to kneel on.
