Jumping Rope
« on: October 22, 2004, 10:06:20 PM »
I jump rope but have had two knee surgeries (same knee) five years apart, both to repair torn cartilage.  I have never suffered trauma to the knee.  I want to continue jumping rope, and have done so already, two months after the last surgery, without pain.  Is this a bad idea?  I jump at about 150 turns per minute for 20 minutes straight during a normal workout.

Hey !!

When you have kneeproblems the thing you often needs to avoid is jumping. Have you asked your own doc about this ? Everyone is different therefor it's not easy to say what's good or not. Call the doc and ask.

Like Nettan says, everyone is different.  It may be O.K.  But I have also heard that jumping is very hard on the knees.  Everytime you land from a  jump it's pretty jarring.  And your doing that several times every minute for maybe 15, 30, 60 minutes or whatever.  If your young and have no problems than maybe it is O.K.  But if you feel any pain after what so ever, if it were me I'd find something I like to do for exercise.
