Common Questions and Answers about Knee exercises knee extension


Avatar f tn Lateral lunges, front lunges, half squats, leg press, lateral step ups, knee extension (90-40 degrees), hamstring curls, hip adduction and abduction, hip flexion and extension, toe raises, try all of these under an instructor. I would suggest you to apply ice packs regularly to decrease the pain and inflammation and take intermittent pain killers and go for an MRI and also a second opinion. Take care!
Avatar m tn Did you also calculate the Q angle? According to Wikipedia Q angle should be less than 18 degrees with the knee in extension and less than 8 degrees with the knee in 90 degrees of flexion and is necessary as a diagnostic test. You should build on your strength and only try fast bowling if you can cope with it and you need a help of a sports medicine expert to rate that.

Proper rehabilitation of the knee really does require this. So, you are likely recovering still and would guess that this 'giving way' feeling is the result of that. Please confirm with your doctor though. If the sensation of buckling continues, you may have retorn the tendon, unfortunately.
Avatar n tn As for my therapy I am doing the exercises I was told to do like the (straight leg raises and knee extension) I can bend my knee really well so I do have the flexaiblity . For being almost 50 I am in good phyiscal shape (except for my knees ) Before the surgery I did 45 minutes on the Elliptical 3 days a week and other strength exercises the other 2 days. The arthroscopy was done on my left knee which is almost bone on bone.
Avatar n tn It has been 14 months since my tkr. I don't have full extension of my knee, therefore my leg is shorter and I limp. This has caused problems with ligaments shortening and heel pain and pain in my right hip. I did all the exercises dutifully and have been to physical therapy for two extra sessions (each was at least 6 weeks). I don't know what to do at this point.
Avatar f tn Well for me, having had three knee surgeries, what helped most was walking as far as i could on a treadmill at about 3mph everyday for a few weeks, then I started walking with a five pound weight in each hand for two weeks before Istarted trying to jog on a treadmill. Then did I few extension and flexing exercises, as well as hip exercises, and now im able to run, took about a year to get results, Iknow its frustrating but hang in there and keep at it.
Avatar f tn I am suppose to be at 120 degrees flexion and 0 degrees extension. I am currently at 98 flexion and 5 extension and not near his protocol. Also I am still in a brace yet and have a lot of swelling and stiffness in my knee. Is this a normal way to progress? I am doing PT 3 times a week and doing my exercises at home as well, I just wanted to see if anyone else has had these issues at all? My PT is a bit worried I am progressing so slowly and I am as well.
Avatar m tn I have bursitis of the knee that hasn't fully healed in over a year. If I exercise with the bursitis, including use of the leg extension machine, what kind of injury am I risking?
Avatar m tn sudden knee pain during pt and continued pain interior medial aspect. medic took xrays - all ok. Soft tissue issues. therapist can feel the popping of (muscle, ligament, tendon???) during flexion and extension. It feels like something has to pop over something else for leg to straighten. It hurts when it does. Occurs during weight-beating and non weight bearing. Therapist says muscle may be increasing in bulk but not stretching out causing other soft tissues??? to have to pop over them.
Avatar n tn Hi, How are you? Patellar tendinitis is an injury that affects the tendon connecting your kneecap (patella) to your shinbone. It helps your muscles extend your lower leg so that you can kick a ball, push the pedals on your bicycle and jump up in the air. As you mentioned that you have been diagnosed two years back what was the treatment given? And do you feel improvement after the treatment? Was physical therapy given by an expert?
Avatar n tn I had a TKR in september 2008, I have found it very difficult to bend the knee to the required position without pain and stiffness. I have done all of the excersises that have been given and have remained quite active. I cannot walk very far without discomfort,and the knee still gives way. My legs are continuously aching, and it is difficult to get a goo nights sleep.
Avatar f tn I had tkr 10 weeks ago and have soooo much pain and clunking noises and catching when i bend my knee. I have good flex, (135 degrees) and extension is 0. I have faithfully been doing my exercises but something seems WRONG. As the swelling has been going down this problem seems to be getting worse. Does anyone have any help, suggestions, or ideas what could be wrong? Has anyone else had this same problem?
1461944 tn?1286027942 You require sessions with an experienced rehabilitation expert, who will walk you through the exercises. This should have been done before surgery. I am dismayed at the number of surgeons who direct patients directly into the operating room for sciatic pain without having them treated by a rehabilitation specialist. After a laminectomy is performed there should be no pain whatsoever. Discuss this with your surgeon. You need another MRI.
Avatar n tn is talking about putting me under and manipulating the knee to gain full extension ( fun,fun,fun ). He also said that some people just have a lower pain tolerance and that could be preventing me from reaching full extension. I find that pretty funny because I'm a pretty tough guy, having done martial arts for years. Right now I feel like having ACL surgery with this Dr is the worst mistake I ever made in my entire life.
Avatar n tn diagnosed with the following and would appreciate an explaination, and how serious is this. I am a disabled veteran and have been rated at 50% disability, right knee, and lumbar. Conclusion from med report, MRI no contrast 1. No HNP or central stenosis at any level 2.
Avatar m tn For the last six months I have had an intermittent problem in the right knee area. I appreciate a description is no substitute for a proper examination, but I will try to describe the problem as accurately and fully as possible. - I am a 35 year old male, active, workout regularly, 6'4", 13.5 stone. - My day job involves prolonged sitting at a desk using a computer.
Avatar f tn There is swelling on medial side of knee as well. and lots of stiffness. My ROM is good, Extension 0 and Flexion 133. I had uncemented TKR, and latest Xray showed bone has not fused with prosthesis yet. Can someone help me. Thanks.
Avatar f tn with extreme stabbing pain in which I come very close to falling. No known injuries. Compared to other knee the knee cap looks to be double in size. Full extension even when sitting can Bring on the stabbing pain.
Avatar n tn Stretching the front and back or your leg to increase the flexibility in your knee. Perform stretching exercises at the end of your workout when your muscles are warm. Stretch the front of your leg in a standing position by bending your knee and raising your foot up toward your backside. Grasp the ankle with your hand to enhance the stretch. Stretch the back of your legs in a seated position with your legs extended on the floor. Fold forward over your straight legs to stretch your hamstrings.
Avatar f tn I don't fully understand the MRI results for my knee and what I need to be prepared for in the future, in terms of surgery etc... I am in major pain and have had various problems over the years with this knee. I am what I consider to still be relatively young - 48. Can anyone help me/explain to me in layman terms what the following means???? Please?: Large complex tear of the medial meniscus. Intrasubstance degeneration versus nondisplaced horizontial tear of the lateral meniscus.
Avatar m tn The RFM is a weaker hip flexor when the knee is extended because it is already shortened and thus suffers from active insufficiency. The RFM assists in the extension of the knee and flexion of the hip. The should tell you what type of exercises should be helpful. Bicycling is a good exercise for this muscle according to a friend of mine, Physical Therapist. I hope this is helpful. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions. Best wishes!
Avatar f tn t do any cardio that is too taxing on my knee; is there any exercises that have high fat burning principals other than swimming? (I dont have the avilability of swimming where i live).
Avatar f tn I couple months ago I fell and hit my knee on the hard part of the extension cord. I am experiencing a little discomfort and it looks dented. It also cracks a when I bend it.
Avatar f tn I had a total knee replacement on my right knee on 10/22/09. I am 44/female. I have had 8 operations on this knee prior to the TKR. I have had bad knees and ankles since I was very young. Was still very active despite this. Played ALL the sports in high school college etc. So in general understand knee pain / how tough PT is and have developed a high tollerance for pain. Had the TKR on a Thursday...left hospital on Sun....
