How to exercise with a knee injury – experienced lawyer in Oundle
If you have sustained a knee injury then it can take some time to heal completely. In this time it is helpful to exercise so that you keep your fitness level up. Exercise can also help to heal the knee injury itself, as long as it is done carefully and you don’t put too much stress on the injured area. Finally, for people that like to get a lot of exercise in their day to day life it can help to ease the stress of the situation to continue working out when they can.
Stopping exercise altogether will only throw your body out of its normal rhythms which will impede the healing process. Here are some tips on getting exercise when you have a knee injury.
Prepare Your Knee
You will need to make sure that your knee is in good enough condition to do any exercise by following the RICE rule from the day of the injury. This means
Follow these steps until your knee feels comfortable enough for you to stand and do mild exercise on it. You should speak to a specialist before you attempt any exercise, and see if physiotherapy can be built into your regular exercise routine.
Try Leg Strengthening Exercises
Make sure that you don’t try anything too strenuous from the start, but slowly build up the tolerance of your leg and knee to exercise with simple bend and stretch exercises to begin with, moving onto very light weights as you feel your condition improve. If it hurts – stop.
Cardiovascular exercise will keep your body in good condition as well as strengthening your legs, so try to get out for a walk every day or every other day. If you can move up into a jog then this is excellent. A cross-trainer will provide you with great cardio as well, without putting too much pressure on your knee.
