Can you squat on the floor cross legged?
January 21, 2023 3:14am CST
After my accident a few years I no longer can do Yoga that involves bending, twisting and squatting cross legged. I only do breathing exercises which can be done sitting on a chair. I do physio therapy to strengthen my lower limbs - just four movements. Sometimes I do not feel like doing them and then I experience stiffness and pain in the knees and when that happens I am back doing those exercises What exercises do you do?

I can only do it to a point . . . my left knee is a bit painful. It seems to do with my knee cap area - not a joint issue. I used to be a figure skater and have injured it. I'm still trying to figure out the best strength exercise for it . . . but I do many stretches and walk daily.
