The squat is one of the best exercises for improving your knee and hip pain, to help maintain bone density, and to help you to complete daily activities like using the stairs, and getting up and down.
To perform a squat, start by standing with your feet hip width apart and with your toes facing forward. You can place your hands across your chest and from here imagine sitting back into a chair. Slowly lower and then stand back up. Ensure that throughout this movement your heels remain on the ground and your knees do not collapse inwards.
