Somehow I've injured my ACL. What is it?? It's the ligament that runs from the lower leg bone to the upper bone under the knee cap to help stabilize the knee. Since I'm now over 60, it can become stiff & lose it's elasticity - doesn't everything when you're past menopause??? - AND an injury can happen very easily when you become sedentary. Yikes! I've been planted on my butt for the past year working 6 or 7 days a week at the computer! I admit, I haven't been exercising at all!! Pay attention folks, it all falls apart if you don't move it around . . . . Good thing I've excavated my Gazelle & am now using it slowly. I can limber up & stretch a whole lot more on it than I can on the ground, that's for sure.
