Overuse problems of the knee :
jumpers knee exercises - - Posted by brettytopbanana (brettytopbanana), 19 September 2004
hi all, i came on here about a month ago asking about a steroid injection which i was having. well i had that three weeks ago and i think (or hope) that i have responded well to it because i am no longer feeling pain when walking upstairs like i used to.
the injection along with the consultation cost me £240 which in my opinion is money well spent because i had this very painful problem for nearly three years. anyway i love playing football and cant wait to get back, but im sure one of my problems is that i have skinny legs and this hasn't helped the problem that i had with my knee.
anyway im looking to do exercises that will improve the strength in my quadsas well as help my knee
i have heard that leg extensions on a mulitfgym are no good.
can anybody recommend any exercises that i can do?
also i have got a mcdavid knee strap being delivered which is for jumpers knee has anyone used one of these?
all help and answers are appreciated!!!
