What about some water exercises? Great way to improve all around body strength C:

Water training is fantastic and comes highly recommended. It is great resistance training and is easier on the joints.

Cycling regularly for a while, then see how things develop? Did you ask your doctor/ physiotherapist?

I hurt my knee running a while ago- It still isn’t 100% better but I’ve worked through it with physical therapy. I still have to really warm up a good 10-15 minutes before I run though and I have to do lag strengthening exercises regularly to keep it from acting up. My advice for you is to do body weight exercises for a while, some low impact cardio- run a little but at the second of pain walk. I did pretty much any lower body exercise I could with the exception of lunges and squats as those would make my knee act up again. It took a while before I could run as long as I could before but I think the most important thing is to keep exercising even if its light exercising and then slowly work up back to where you were. Physical therapy can also do wonders. I hope you feel better soon!

Ouch, how did you hurt your knee while running?

Lorraine said 9 years, 1 month ago:

We aren’t entirely sure how I hurt it exactly. It was probably do to the fact that I started running after not ever being really physically active before so even though I wasn’t super overweight or anything I just didn’t have a baseline of physical activity beforehand. I started out running a mile a day and since I really liked it I just kept building up distance and running more and more. I didn’t do any strength training at the time though so my physical therapist thinks that I was running too much without properly strengthening my legs. So now I run every-other day and do strength training/ weight lifting the other days :)
