Best balance board for knee stability training

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I had ACL reconstructive surgery a year and a half ago, and my knee still feels unstable. Has anyone had any success using balance boards? Been looking at Indo boards.. Any clue to which type of board/setup is best suited?

I like the Bosu ball, because you can do a bunch of different exercises.

My PT had me using a BOSU during knee rehab related to an ACL injury.

 

What kind of exercises do you do to strengthen your hamstrings?

Ah can't remember what they're called. But curls (kick-backs) and the strap around the ankle to a wire then kick sideways..
My surgery was deemed so-so, and instability was proven significant in both knees this fall. I have hyperextension in both knees and slack in MCL's. (I tore left MCL along with ACL)

Yeah just checked out the BOSU, thats what I used with my physio post-op to jump back and forth on post-op. Lately I started doing squats with barbells on it.

Going sideways is not going to do much for your hamstrings.

 

Here are a couple things I found researching knee rehab and ski conditioning exercises.

Use a hamstring curl machine to strengthen the hamstrings.

You should get to your bodyweight to be strong enough to prefer injury.
