    Question Injured

    OK, so I just got over a knee and ankle injury and I was wondering if anyone knew how I could get the full strength back in my knee and ankle without injuring it again?? Thanks in advanced...

    Hm....I might stalk this board coz the other day my knee collapsed and I really want to know how to get some strength in the muscles of my knee...

    I borrowed a treadmill to rehab my ankle. Walking is a good, steady way to increase strength. I wore a support wrap for a good six months after the injury to help support the ankle. (I tore all of the ligaments)

    A bicycle type exerciser -- pedalling backwards puts less strain on your knee. Highly recommended for knee-replacement surgery patients.

    Thanks guys!! Well I have been wearing a knee brace everytime I ride for over six monthes and I figured that with riding my knee would eventually get back to normal but it never did so I just wanted to start getting back to normal... would swimming help at all?

    Interesting timing

    I as of this morning, am for a lot of reasons (some Injury related) thinking about having to give up my full time riding. I have taken a full body beating this year, and my pain threshold ain't what it was when I was 22 years old.
    ( 27 years have passed since then) I could at this point talk about the confidence aspects, or my slowly dropping enthusiasm levels, but they like everything else level off in short order...
    In summary, I don't know I can do it anymore...I have to face it, I am not getting younger, and my doctor is getting tired of seeing me...How I hate this idea really..The reality of stuff bites...
    I'm going back to my ice bag...It's becoming too close a companion lately...

    Depending on how serious your injury was, your family physician can write you a referral to go see PT.

    Swimming is awesome. It works the joints and muscles, but is lower impact. I agree with CDT as well. PT may be the way to go, especially if this has been an ongoing issue. Deal with it now, before you have permanent problems.

    Thanks I will ask my Docter about the PT!! :)
