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

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)?

That’s a great option… probably much more comfortable.

Are there additional exercises for posture?
