View Full Version : Help with Knee Pain!

06-23-2004, 07:18 PM
I am having major knee problems! I have IT band problems which is causing knee problems. Has anyone else had this? I have been off the bike completely for 6 weeks getting therapy 3 times per week, and the doctor says it will be at least another month. Anyone have any suggestions? Any uplifting success stories?

May I just say, WAHHH! I can't stand not riding!

I know how youīre feeling. I had two knee operations last year plus one cycling accident with knee injuries.. :eek: After the first operation I could not get on the bike for 7 weeks as my knee would not bend this far.. :( Thatīs when I had a great idea - I simply removed the right pedal, placed my foot on a stool and that was it! At least I could take part in classes again (no teaching, though) and had SOME exercise... Mind you, some of my colleagues DID throw rather bewildered looks at me, I must say.. :) But I didnīt really care. Good luck! Things can only get better!

Thanks for the enouragement Susie! On the plus side, my coaching skills have improved dramatically, since I have been teaching without much riding at all.
