- Keep active! Helpful activities include walking, hiking, cycling, swimming, low-impact aerobics, golfing, doubles tennis (without running for balls), and ballroom dancing.
- But not too active! You still need to be careful, though. Avoid any high-impact sport or exercise program, including basketball, baseball, football, soccer, running, or rock climbing.
- Stay at a healthy weight. Extra weight puts more pressure on your knees.
