Common Questions and Answers about Home exercise program knee


Avatar f tn How important is exercise to recovery? If someone has been in hospital for 9 weeks and is very weak it is difficult to "make " them exercise if they are not feeling well. Any suggestions??
Avatar n tn Eventually, you'll have an exercise program, and most physical therapy equipment can be purchased for not a lot of money over the internet. Over time, you will get stronger in a way that suits you, and hopefully break out of your rut. But for any of us to tell you specific exercises to do is difficult, as we don't know what's really going on nor how strong you are nor how you'll react to a specific exercise.
627388 tn?1222201812 The types of exercise best suited to you and those which you should avoid The intensity of the workout (how hard you should be working) The duration of your workout and any physical limitations Referrals to other professionals, such as a physical therapist, who can help create a personal exercise program that meets your needs. The type of exercise that works best for you depends on your symptoms, fitness level, and overall health.
Avatar f tn I am doing well but the outside of my knee (tendons?) hurts a lot when I walk. I use the stationary bike 30-60 minutes daily and exercise but take pain meds when the pain is severe. I am going to try acupuncture to see if I can find relief. Has anyone done this?
649848 tn?1534637300 I guess I'm just going to have to bite the bullet and use some of the precious time between getting home from work and bedtime to get in some type of exercise and hope it doesn't energize me to the point where I can't sleep. I guess the house work will still be here when the weekend rolls around, huh and we can always hope no one stops by during the week.........lol This morning, I am going to go out and mow part of the yard - yes, with a push mower.......
Avatar n tn Background Info:Right Knee:3 ACL Reconstructions,1 Meniscus replacement(ie graph),1 Bone Graph, & 4 meniscus repairs (3 since meniscus replacement);1 ACL on L-Knee.34 yr male, 215lb.I have bad arthritis in my right knee, and am starting to have pain in my left. I have been told I am too young for a knee replacement. My doc & I have tried numerous arthritis medications that upset my stomach, ie diarrhea. glucosamine and chondroitin supplements>can’t tell any difference.
Avatar f tn I have never had surgery on the knee, I have had no injury to the knee. I exercise moderately and am not considered overweight--well at least for a 53 year old man--but I was riding a stationary bike more frequently (4-5 x per week) and at a higher resistance level for a few month before this pain. If anyone knows what this is, any contribution to this thread would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn When stress, like exercise, increases the heart rate, it makes you a higher risk for stroke and heart attack in this profession. Since the stress levels suffered by EMTs in emergency situations, your heart rate may prevent you from getting and keeping a job. Alot of time exercises that are aerobic bring down the heart rate. Biking, swimming, low impact aerobics and power walking are good exercises that will give you a good workout without raising your heart rate too high.
Avatar n tn I don't feel stressed and why does it come on when I exercise or do heavy work? Isn't exercise supposed to relieve stress? I don't know if I am making it worse by plowing through or if that is the best thing to do.
Avatar n tn I will be starting a holistic program (accupuncture, chiropractic, massage and detox and knee exercises). I'm looking forward to this. I have for a while lost confidence in the doctors and the lack of empathy towards patients that they have. Some of the answers are unreal that they give you, and yes, we're supposed to be patient after 4-6 months to a year is insane. I hope all of you find some solution besides the unheard of amounts of surgery. I will let you all know how my program goes.
Avatar n tn When I got home I made it up 4 flights of stairs with minimal pain. I spend all day at home inside today and there is no pain, but the right knee feels strange, right in the middle and center of the joint as if something is “dislocated” but that is the only way I can describe the feeling. I find this sequence of events very perplexing, and am afraid of what they mean. What should I do and what is this likely to be? I am a 23 year old male who lives in Chicago.
Avatar m tn A good one is on the Lance Armstrong web site. IMO, cycling is a good exercise even if you have knee problems. Before my father-in-law had his knees replaced, cycling was his main form of exercise - walking was too painful. His doctors encouraged him to keep it up and as a result his surgeries went very, very well. He still cycles, and can now play golf and dance with his lovely wife without pain. He's the poster boy for successful knee surgery.
1603542 tn?1297738597 Statistics say that 95% of those that do not improve do not follow the home exercise program as ordered. I have no idea if that is the case with you or not....if you are doing the exercises are prescribed and have no improvement please seek another opinion. It is possible the diagnosis is not correct. I wish you the very best and hope you will be soon be feeling much better Please let us know how you are doing. We are here to support you and please feel free to post again.
Avatar n tn i know they tell you not to take a home test, but i couldn't help myself. I thought maybe if i took one every couple of days, the results might be more accurate. i took a test 6/18 was negative. today 6/21 tested positive. Is it even possible?
Avatar n tn Hello; for the past few months I have been experiencing a pain in my knee, it is just to the outside of the patella. It is a very sharp pain, like an electrical shock. It happens totally at random. It can happen when I am walking, sitting, sleeping, etc. When the pain is not occurring, my knee feels completely normal. When it happens, it usually happens every few seconds or minutes, then stops for several hours. I am not aware of any injury or unusual stress to that area.
Avatar m tn I seem to have more confidence there, and hope it will help me begin to exercise at home, as it is a pain to go to the center and I would get more exercise. The Nu-step is a good workout, but not weight bearing. I, too, have the PAC's and usually do a lighter workout if they are bad. The cardiologist wants me to exercise, says it's safe and the best thing I can do. I always feel better after.
Avatar n tn Also, for the quad atrophy, you need to do some physical therapy or have them give you a home exercise program for quad strengthening. You need to have strong quads in order to support your ACL.
Avatar f tn It is possible that this is all related to your new exercise program. Typically with any of the autoimmune forms of arthritis, you feel better with exercise and worse with rest. Are you working with a personal trainer? That may be something you want to consider so that you do not over do it. If you do not get better or the problems seem to get worse, you should consult a doc.
572651 tn?1531002957 I’m embracing the moment, feeling good about all this and then we assumed the beginning posture – every time I rocked forward to Dragon position my right knee popped. Every time I rocked back on my heels, my right knee popped. I’m not talking out of the socket popping, I am talking everyone in the studio could hear this sound coming from my body. My knee is making sounds like the popcorn starting to pop in the microwave.
700223 tn?1318169294 The following 10 tips are meant as a guide to the pursuit of that goal. 1. Consult your physician before starting any exercise or sports program. A proper medical evaluation can spot potential problems and correct weaknesses that may be worsened by starting a sports program. Previous injuries can result in chronic problems if they have not been properly rehabilitated. Ideally, a pre-season physical should take place within 6 weeks of the start of the season. 2.
Avatar m tn things that you could do right there at home! I do know swimming is an excellent exercise...because your weight is not on your joints because of the water.......just moving your joints helps also,it keeps the blood flowing...I am not sure to the degree you have hypermobility,so i can not say for sure what exercises you would be able to perform without injuring yourself and causing you great pain.....please have your parents speak with your Dr.....they will be able to assist you...
Avatar f tn but i think she would have anyway with her daily calorie intake/exercise program. the problem with some people and phen is they can put the weight back on and more if they dont change how and what they eat and getting into an exercise program. some drs wont prescribe it. mine wouldnt unless i lost 5-10 pounds on my own first, so i did. but im not going to take meds to lose my weight, i really want to be able to do it on my own and keep it off. good luck!

Avatar f tn Doing crunches and planks won't get rid of that pesky belly fat, you will have to take up a form of aerobic exercise to burn fat. For a recovering knee injury I'd suggest either taking up swimming or even cycling.
612876 tn?1355518095 As he has regained some strength and balance thanks to compression stockings, he has resumed some light exercise at home -- treadmill walking and recumbent bike, plus stretching. With the gel product, stockings don't move even through that. In the new, bewildering world of autonomic problems, without a real diagnosis yet, and absorbing these life changes and alterations, the "Stays On" product was a bit of a thrill -- one less hassle to contend with. Hope this is helpful to others.
Avatar n tn Given you age and activity level, a Physical therapy progarm empahasizing stretching strengthening, modalities, and intsrtuction in a home exercise program would be a good place to start. Injections of platelet rich plasma (PRP) have been shown to shorten the healing process for a variety of soft tissue injuries including muscle injuries.
Avatar f tn Walking can be a beneficial exercise for pulmonary embolism in the lungs. Starting a walking program immediately after a pulmonary embolism can speed up the recovery process and prevent the development of other embolisms. Walk using your normal gait. As you become stronger, try for a goal of walking at a moderately-brisk pace for 30 minutes on at least five days weekly to strengthen your cardiovascular health.
