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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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.

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
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
