In brief: Keep it straight

Your quad serves to make your knee go straight as you climb.
If it is injured it will hurt. We use a knee immobilzer to help with symptoms. For stairs you will want to take them one at a time leading with the good leg and keeping the sore leg straight dragging it up from behind.

In brief: Backwords

Go up steps backwards on your butt, sitting on each step for a second as you move up.
