Riding my mountain bike without antagonizing my knee joint.

“Initial pain from a right knee sprain (mild) brought me here. My physical therapist found that my core and hip region was inflexible and worked on torso twisting and balance, along with knee-specific exercises and stretches. The mat stretches and work with foam roller and inflatable ball continued exercising hip and thigh muscles. I notice more flexibility now and intend to incorporate some of these stretches into my upper body gym routine. Knee pain has diminished, and I am able to ride my mountain bike uphill without antagonizing the joint. Good work! My PT was knowledgeable and also sensitive to my specific needs.” -M.M.
