Around 4 months ago I tore the tendons in my right knee since then I have found it very difficult to start exercising again as I am worried I will do more damage to it. I have noticed that if I am walking my knee seems to be ok but it will start to ache once I have sat down for a little while and then my knee seizes when I go to stand on it again causing be to limp until its stretched out fully. I have been to my GP when I first tore my tendons and she said it takes a long time to heal but weren't really useful on what I should do in regards to exercises.
I have brought a knee support which does not seem to be helping but I am just wondering if anyone knows any exercises I can do to help strengthen my knee or should I just start running on it again ?
I am keen to get back exercising and love running so want to get back to how I was before.
Any advice would be appreciated.
