Tips on on how to exercise and support a very weak, stiff and painful left knee
Please answer that question I'm deparate for answers
I'm sorry to hear that you are having such a struggle with your knee. That must be miserable for you.
Because you describe it as 'weak' you will need to be extra careful not to cause damage to the soft tissues that are designed to support the knee joint so I would strongly suggest consulting a physiotherapist for expert advice before you embark on an exercise regime.
Your knee will then be fully assessed so you can begin at the right level of strengthening work without risk of creating more problems. Your GP Practice may be able to refer you to a local NHS Physio clinic or you may even be able to make a self-referral.
If your personal circumstances permit you should be able to find a private physio in your locality quite easily but make sure you ask about their fees before you book an appointment.
I do hope you can find help quickly and look forward to hearing how you get on.0
