Is running on a treadmill bad for me if I tore my ACL a year ago?

Is running on a treadmill bad for me if I tore my ACL a year ago?

Not necessarily: As long as you have rehabed the musclesof your thighs (quads and hamstrings) running should not be a problem. Elliptical machines and bicycles may feel better though. If choosing to cycle, make sure the seat is adjusted propely - leg should almost fully extend when pedal is down, but the knee should not ever lock. ...Read more

Is running with a completely torn ACL and a torn lateral meniscus okay?

Is running with a completely torn ACL and a torn lateral meniscus okay?

Not unheard, but...: Certainly has risks. If you elect to run w/ a torn acl you need to speak w/ your physician about your strength & getting the right kind of brace to protect the joint. As for the meniscus i would need more info about the type & symptoms of tear to make a recommendation. For the best long term outcomes (w/ high activity level) i suggest surgery, better early than late. More @ drmarkgalland.Com. ...Read more

I want a flat butt and slimmer thighs. Can it be possible only with flat treadmill running? I dont want to do squats and lunges.

I want a flat butt and slimmer thighs. Can it be possible only with flat treadmill running? I dont want to do squats and lunges.

My guess is you will: need to do something more than "flat treadmill running" but can probably meet your goals without squats and lunges. Jumping rope or stair climbing would probably be good. Various websites I consulted showed workouts that included other exercises beside squats and lunges (what's wrong with those??). I would consult a recommended personal trainer. Good wishes:) ...Read more

How to ease back into running after ACL surgery?

How to ease back into running after ACL surgery?

Running`: I usually tell my acl patients to wait 3 months before running. They usually have been on a bike for at least 6-8 weeks by that time. You should ease into it by running a block or two and then walking a block. Most patients can get back to running fairly quickly at that point. Always listen to your knee especially if it swells. ...Read more
