Fractured Tibia- Regaining Muscle
« on: June 19, 2008, 04:29:31 PM »
I fractured my tibia about three weeks ago. I got my cast off yesterday and am now in a movable full leg brace. The doctor said I should work on regaining some of my muscle and gave me two exercises to do. The only problem is I can do way over the amount of repetitions I'm supposed to do and feel nothing. I was wondering if there are any exercises I can do to regain muscle, while not putting any weight on my leg. I probably have a month before it's back to normal, but anything would help! Thanks!

In a case like this I would generally listen to my doctor. You have nothing to lose by taking it slow and alot to lose if you happen to over do it by accident.
