Ok folks, another victim here, just got cortison injected into my knee because the pain was just too heavy.
As you know i have 3-4 tims basketball a week and i lift 3-4 times. the doctor has said i have imbalances in my legs that cause my tibia(i guess the bone where the patella ligament connect to the knee) to swole, the oain is just unreal, I can?t walk after practise. He said I have to get my hamstrings real strong.Since I was hitting them real hard, I was surprised that he said my hams are actually weak?!??!?!?!?!
My question is:
Should I stop basketball?If yes for how long?
Should i stop any movement that strengthens the quads?and just really push the hammies to the edge????
What exercices can I do? the doc said do LegCurls.Since i don?t train at a gym, what should I do? I was thinking about GoodMornings,ReverseHypers,Natural Glute Hams( dont have a bench).
I just want to make sure I dont lean forward with my shins, because that when the pain is real heavy.
+ My old Coach has said ishould do 6 weeks of 10-12 reps work and then lower the reps to 6.He said I need cross sectional Muscle fibers first or something like that. Right now I am icing the area right after every training, I dont know if it helps tho?
Whoa, long read, I still hope that someone outthere is willing to help.
