Hurt my knee- Now what do I do???

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Seriously- I am freaking out! My kids and I went down a double black diamond yesterday and it was an epic fail for Mom! I could feel that my left knee felt weird as I was laying there waiting for my son to rescue my poles but it wasn't until later when I iced and rested it and then tried to get up that it feels really stiff and odd. I am going to rest it a couple of days and see how it is but what do I do for activity in the meantime. I know I can do some weights for my arms but anything else?? Freaking out! Help!

    I agree with getting to the Dr. I had knee surgery from where I tore my cartilage just from turning around and I had to work with it almost a year before anything was done and was in constant pain, please don't put it off there are wonderful exercises to do to strengthen your knee to help, you may be able to find some on the internet, you can go to WEB MD and put in your symptoms and get an idea of what exactly is going on.

    There is a team for chair exercises here on SP that you maybe able to get some ideas for activity. I would have to agree with my other SP Teammates that you should probably see a dr. first.
Hope you heal soon!

    Shadow boxing. Lots of shadow boxing; great for cardio without using lower body. Get some mitt gloves and throw a few rounds.

    First, go to the doctor. Chances are you might have tweaked a meniscus. The doctor will tell you what you can and can't do. Weights might be okay, but only if your are sitting down. Otherwise it puts pressure on your leg. Rest, Ice, Compression and elevation!. emoticon

    Hopscotch? Okay, total bad joke on my part. I don't really know. Not sure what I DR would say and in the case of injury, I think I would ere on the side of caution
