When athletes get a minor injury to the knee such as a pulled ligament, how does he rehab that injury? I mean, if they don't need surgery, how do they get their knee back into shape so that they can continue to play? The reason I ask: I want to play soccer this summer starting in about a month. I want to build strength in my knees. I don't have the best knees, but I don't think I need any surgery or anything. They don't bother me that much. I think if I build up my leg strength along with my knee strength, it will go a long way to keeping the possibility of injury to a minimum. So, does anyone know an specific exercises I can do to target the knee and the muscles in and around the knee? Thanks for the help.
