The muscles that need stretching for knee posture corrections are often in the hip. They are complicated.

It is common to let some of them get too tight. Rectus femorus is one, piriformis is another, leg abductors.....?

It is best to have a Dr evaluate your posture and prescribe PT so that the correct stretches are done.

Some stretches might stress the back so be careful.
