Welcome to Sparkpeople! I too struggle with knee problems. Look for chair exercises or upper body exercises.

Keep fighting! There are ways to exercise without harming the knees, too. Search on SP.

Hello my 50+ friends, I am struggling with the pain OA, torn Medial Meniscus and sprain ACL of knee injuries. After working out 10/13/11 I tore my Medial Meniscus on top of already having OA. Today and Tuesday gave me 2 days this week in rehab, 1 day on land and today in the pool for 1 hour each. Needless to say that I am in great pain right now. Lack of muscle tone in my quadriceps and hamstring got me where I am today, fighting to gain strength under physical therapist Rachel and Lorii. My left leg has been swollen since the injury ocurred back in mid October. I am determined to keep moving forward with this. I want my life back without the pain but that appears to be impossible now. Surgery on my back has given me freedom from the 17 months of pain I endured due to the auto accident in 2010. I am working on my left knee strengthening and trying to prevent the same thing from happening in my right knee. I am on medication to help deal with the pain of it all. Still I struggle to gain my ability to do the things that I no longer can do. I am fighting to get strong again.
