  • I just had knee surgery, meniscus tear, MCL damage, bone spurs and cartilage lesions. Some of these exercises are in my routine to do but modified. However, that's all I can do no other exercises allowed surgeon is afraid if I turn or jerk wrong I could do more damage. Sad to say I gained 4 pounds since this all started and I cut my calories to 1000 a day I just lay all day except when I exercise then I am in a recliner supporting the leg. The key is exercise to strengthen the Quad muscle this helps to support the knee and keeps it strong. - 2/10/2014 10:18:34 AM
  • I have a real problem just reading how to do them; please let us know when a video is made. My knees will so thank you! - 2/4/2014 6:38:53 AM
  • Video would be great!! - 2/3/2014 11:26:31 PM
  • I agree that a video would help us do these right. I have both knees bone on bone on the inside. I find that walking on the treadmill at 1.8 mph or 2 mph helps with the pain.Then, I do 10 minutes on the recumbent bike. Ten minutes forward and 10 backwards. I always use ice after any exercise for my knees.
    Thanks, I think these will help - 2/3/2014 7:48:36 PM
  • This is so true. I've managed to strengthen my knees enough that after years of constant spraining I'm not spraining easily anymore and I rarely even fall all the way down if I slip (exercise has given me enough muscle control to catch myself most of the time). - 2/3/2014 3:09:40 PM

    There are some great points here. I'm an active guy in his early 40's and already recovering from a knee surgery. Few things from my experience. Exercises and Physical Therapy is a MUST. Take it incredibly seriously, it will help you recover faster.

    The other thing is that you need a good knee brace for support and protection if you plan on being active. I got mine from www.better-braces.com and love it. It provides stability but also flexibility now that I am active again. Hope that helps! - 8/25/2013 4:16:30 PM

    Uncertain about the exercises by reading. Pictures or video would surely help. Tq - 7/20/2013 11:01:10 AM
