More info on this, please. I am good as long as I get up every half hour or so, but if I forget and sit at my desk for a couple of hours, I am so stiff when I get up. I want to know about the tremble and push routine!Still working on how to get this stiffness when I sit for a while out of the knee. This seem to be a common problem with everyone with knees in my condition. I use a tremble and then push up routine to get the joint loose before I stand, that seem to do the trick.
Well, wberry - fancy seeing you again!last two weeks I have had a significant amount of tightness of the muscles and tendons on the back of the knee. so it was really tight making it difficult and painful the straighten.
I'm curious why you are still doing these exercises at 5 months out? By all means go back to the gym but don't go mad with it. But please do stop all those heel slides, SLRs and steps. You really don't need them, especially when you're back at work and out and about. That would be the best remedy for your problems.Heel slides x15 reps at least 3 times a day
Straight leg raise x30 reps at least 4 times a day
Steps x10reps on each flight at least 3 times a day
I planned to start back at the gym because I have been off the bike for a while.
That's perfect! I also suggest you go see a good chiropractor as it sounds like you just have tight hamstrings and similar things which a chiro will see to with great alacrity!found a wall and spent 5 minutes stretching the back of the quads and calf. Relief.
