    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...

    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.
