    Recovering From Knee Injury

    This was my first major injury I've ever had in my life, so I don't really know how to get back into my exercising routine without aggravating my knee. Does anyone have any tips about this? I haven't been working out for about 6 weeks now, so I think getting back into the routine will be kind of hard.

    Not qualified in any way, but am familar with knee injuries.

    1. What is the injury?
    2. How did you do it?
    3. What have you done towards your recovery?

    Darebee has a few knee rehab/ strengthening workouts. Just type in 'knee' to the filter.
    If it's still early days in your rehab the NHS knee workout is a good spot to start.

      Like Io6 said, it depends on the injury. The knee joint is complex. If you could be more specific some of us probably would have tips. What did your doctor say? are you doing physiotherapy?

        Here's a great tip: Consult your physician or PCP. They are the ones who can diagnose what was wrong in the first place and the steps to continue recover.

        For example, did you rupture a tendon? Did you hairline fracture the patella? Do you have a full or partial tear of the MCL?

        All of that will change the answer. And we're not doctors here.

          6 weeks are pretty long. Have you gotten any consultation or treatment since then? How bad does it feel?
          The only advice I have is to do some light exercise if you can, taking a walk for example. It's much better than not moving it at all.

          You can also do abs or upperbody exercises as long as it doesn't irritate your knee.

          I can't say much more because it's just the internet. I am not with you and I am not a doctor.
