ACL Rehabilitation: Stationary Bike
After you regain muscle control, it's time to build strength. This helps you be able to put your full weight on your leg. For best results, warm up and stretch before starting. If your injury is recent, wait until swelling and pain decrease before doing this exercise.
Once you can move your leg through a full turn, slowly pedal for 5-10 minutes. Alternate between pedaling forward and backward.
As your range of motion improves, pedal at a faster, steady pace.
To increase your endurance, pedal a few minutes longer and at a higher intensity each day.
