Hello all, I had undergone a ligament reconstruction surgery before six months. Now, I am not comfortable while walking. According to my surgeon's instruction, I am doing some exercises. But I feel pain if I walk for a long time. I shared this with our family doctor.  He told me that weakness is due to muscles that are not being conditioned. So, I need to increase the level of exercises. He suggested me a clinic in Toronto and told me to consult orthopaedic physiotherapy specialist for my problem. I am planning to take an appointment there. Before taking the treatment, I would like to know the duration of this treatment. Will it possible for me to do jogging and cycling along with this treatment? I heard that these exercises will help to strengthen the muscles. If anybody knows about this, please help me with your suggestions and replies.

Afraid you will need to go to the recommended clinic for an evaluation first and hear what they have to say after doing an examination on you. Good luck and let us know how you make out!!

Please donate to help continue to help others.

My journey with chronic pain began over 30 years ago, while as a young nurse working spinal rehab, I injured my back lifting a patient. I am now fused from L2-S1. I have multiple thoracic and cervical issues. I'm a retired RN/PA and I know and understand the frustrations on both ends of the treatment spectrum of dealing with CP. It's been my goal since 2008, when we started this site, to reach out and help as many people in pain as possible. We will continue the fight as long as we can. Please, if you can help us continue to help you and others, donate. Thank you.

i'm going to physiotherapy at a specialty pain clinic downtown hospital. My Father had ligament surgery on feet and hands and he had to go to the hospital physiotherapy center where the surgeon works and it's covered by OHIP. 

I hope you'll get stronger gradually and they show you the right exercises ok'd with your Surgeon. My PT always contacts my Dr and runs anything with my Dr. always. Take care. Sara
