    One of my girls has a cyst in her femur, just above the knee. It causes some pain and has caused her to develop the muscles in her thigh unevenly, which is causing her knee cap to slip. Her sports medicine specialist and her physical therapist both said that one of the best things she could do was to ride!

    For your back and posture... Do you go to a chiropractor often enough? I know some people write them off as being a bunch of no good hoo-doo but I have horrible posture just like you describe and I went to a chiro and found out my posture was bad because my spine was curved in ways it shouldn't be. I'll need rehabilitative chiropractics to straighten it out again but even just the few weeks I did worked wonders on my back and I even found myself being able to breathe better as it relieved pressure on my ribs. If you haven't been to one I suggest you go and make absolutely sure they take an x-ray before they touch you! Some people have underlying back issues that will only be made worse by being adjusted.

    I'm with Joe4d, tell your PT exactly what you need to be able to do and he/she should be able to help you with tailored exercises - for both knee strength and posture. It's what they do!!!

    For the posture, you do have to think of it and correct yourself on a regular basis until it's habit. I've had do do this because of SI joint & shoulder troubles (minimize the arch in the backbone for the SI joint; keep shoulders back for the tendinitis/impingement) - whenever I think about it I pull my body to a more correct position. I won't say it's given me perfect posture, but I do think it's improved things.

    Most of the time your back cracks to try to correct itself so you should give the chiro a try.
