Wall squats can strengthen knees that aren’t 100% functional. Stand with your back against the wall. Spread your feet shoulder-width apart. Now bend your knees slowly in a squat motion. There is no need to go all the way down. If you feel pain, stand upright and take a breather. If there is no pain, continue with the exercise while keeping your back and pelvis placed firmly against the wall.
