Hi,

All these exercises help in strengthening your thigh muscles and thereby loading of the knee. With load being transmitted more by muscles then through the joint, the joints are stressed less and there is less soreness.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Gopal Goel, Orthopaedic Surgeon
