Are there any people out there who have an ACL injury and still riding?
In August 2010, a horse reared over backwards on me and that resulted in me COMPLETELY tearing my ACL in my right knee.
As of right now, my leg is quite stable, I don't have many problems with it (like I can run 3 miles without is bothering me). But once in an odd circumstance it will buckle on me and give away....
I am only 16 so I have to wait until I am done growing to under go the reconstructive surgery, (they have me booked in summer of 2012).
But any ideas on what I can do to keep my leg from further injury? And NO, staying away from horses is out of the question! LOL. I do have a little brace from the drug store but that wont do to much.
I am terribly scared of falling off.... that would probably be the worst horrific pain you could imagine. Hopefully that doesn't happen!
Does anyone have a similar story or injury? I would love some advice.
