I have a problem with my right knee. I can walk on it I just can't bend while putting pressure on it, or run, or ride a bike. Which takes out a lot of exercises. I don't want to leave out my right leg either. I need exercises that make me feel the burn and get my heart pumping, but won't involve bending and putting pressure on my knee. Have any ideas?
Knee ups. (maybe tie your foot to your leg while doing it for less pain) And then for your calves go from standing, to tiptowing real high lower then reappeat. AWESOME leg without right their.
I also have knee problems and I use a knee bandage when doing workouts. It helps to stabilise your knee. You could also try taping your knee. Riding a bike usually is a good exercise for people with knee injuries but your bike need to have the right size and also your saddle position is very important. You could also try rowing. At first you should try to strengthen the muscles supporting your knee. The easiest workout for this is to put a ball between your knees and try to press them together. You can do this whenever you're sitting. Try to do this as often as possible. If you want something more difficult I recommend this workout: The Doctor's Adductors But try to avoid deep squats and lunges. This could put to much pressure on your knee. Best with your recovery :) !!!
Hi Emily, I know that cycling and swimming work best because our joints aren't that stressed during these activities. Regarding the knee gadgets, others have already replied ^^
