Dr. Bertrand Kaper answered

Specializes in Orthopedic Reconstructive Surgery

By strengthening the muscles around your knee (quadriceps, hamstrings, and calf muscles) you can make your knees more stable and therefore "stronger". This can be achieved through a dedicated exercise program. Strong muscles will aid the ligaments of the joint in stabilizing your knee.
