In brief: Careful
Depends on the ligament.
It is very important to get your motion back first after a ligament injury. Range of motion exercises (wall slides, etc.) and biking without resistance can accomplish this. Then if you are treating the ligament nonop, strengthening exercises are begun. For example- PCL injury, the quad is very important.Ask your doctor for specific goals for your specific ligament injury.
