I am a figure skater and I over stretched my knee so I need workouts I can do without stretching

Protein smoothies to help rebuild.   I have been told to intake protein within 29 minutes of a workout.  Anyone out there have further input, I would like to know as well.  I know we all can be unbalanced and my left buttock and back of thigh scream at me when I do stretches.  I tend to favor my right and as I workout know that I can do more with that side.  After an injury has had a while to heal, I know that physical therapists work muscles while patients tend to baby an injury.  If you have doctor permission to continue, I imagine that continuing to strengthen will eventually repair the damage also.  I have always heard that for every muscle there is an opposite that works in the other direction.  So if you are in pain with one, perhaps the solution is to strengthen the opposite.  For example, for back pain, stomach strengthening is recommended.

One other idea if really immobile....focus on upper body for now if you don't have doctor permission.  You can also do many core exercises on the floor that don't involve the knee.  Rowing motions get the core and arms with aerobic benefit without the legs.  Try using the filter for arms and if there is something that comes up that is too knee involved, modify, but keep moving.  Good luck!
