  1. Dear Jeremy ,Your stretch exercise is fine ,but not for me:I have a full prothesis in each knee ,and Besides being on my knee caps is painful ,my amplitude of motion of the knees in the prayer position is only 90

    • Hi Raymond,
      You are correct. Anyone with a knee/hip prosthesis should consider another position to stretch and strengthen the upper back and shoulders. Sitting on a chair and placing your arms/hands on a table would have a similar effect for both exercises in the video.

    Jeremy, my issue is arthritis in the knees, so even a pillow would not be enough as the knees block at a wide angle. How about sitting on a gym bench and using the large ball (the way you describe sitting on a chair next to a table)?

    Are there additional exercises for posture?
