Knee Instability

The ligaments and tendons surrounding the knee help stabilize the knee in place. Any injury that may loosen or tear this ligament due to wear and tear or genetic conditions can make the knee unstable. Some exercises that are advised for knee instability are straight leg raises, squats, standing hamstring curls, inner thigh stretch, and standing knee lifts.
