Does anyone know any additional ways to strengthen the quads and the other muscles surrounding the knee? My knee problems have to do with the fact that my muscles are unbalanced there. (I took yet ANOTHER trip to the doctor) ol' doc said that my knee cap might be moving around a little bit due to the weakening of the muscles around my knee. I don't exactly get how I'm supposed to rest until it feels good, yet if I rest so that my muscles have "weakened"- I'll hurt myself and have to rest even more. It's a vicious cycle! Image I'm trying to figure out exactly what I'm supposed to do without counteracting what I'm NOT supposed to do!<BR>- THanx, everybody for bearing ith me. Since school is out, there's really nobody around who can help me out with advice (my dancer friends are gods and goddesses, they've NEVER been injured!), and when I was @ the studio, they weren't sure what was going on, so they just kept teeling me to keep dancing ("don't just sit on it"), but take it easily- of course, they didn't know WHY it hurt. Thanks again! Image Image Image

Bebounce, it sounds to me like the questions you are asking and the information you are seeking - how to strengthen and recover from an injury - is exactly the type of thing that a good physiotherapist can help with.<P>Have you tried that route? They are the people who help athletes, dancers and others recover from injury by correctly working/strengthening the structure around the injury. <P>Perhaps others have some more ideas. But I would recommend a good sports/dance physiotherapist.
