Training ladder for: LUXATION OF THE KNEE CAP (LUXATIO PATELLAE)
The indications of time after stretching, coordination training and strength training show the division of time for the respective type of training when training for a period of one hour. The time indications are therefore not a definition of the daily training needs, as the daily training is determined on an individual basis.
Unlimited: Cycling with raised saddle. Swimming (crawl).
Stand with support from the back of a chair or the wall. Using your hand, bend the knee and draw the foot up and your knee slightly backwards so that the muscles in the front of the thigh become increasingly stretched. Hold the position for 20 seconds and relax for 20 seconds before repeating. The exercise can also be done lying down. If you lie on your stomach you can draw the foot up by using a towel.
Lie on your side on a table. Bend one leg up under your body and let the other hang over the edge of the table so that the muscles in the outer side of the thigh become increasingly stretched. Hold the position for 20 seconds and relax for 20 seconds before repeating. The exercise can also be done standing by placing the outstretched injured leg behind the good leg at the same time as bending over the injured leg.
Stand with one leg outstretched and the other slightly bent. Thrust your weight to the side over the bent leg so that the inner side of the opposite thigh becomes increasingly stretched. Hold the position for 20 seconds and relax for 20 seconds before repeating.
Seesaw. Balance on two legs, possibly using a hand as support against the wall, balancing subsequently on one leg without support. Look straight ahead and keep knees bent.
Sit on a chair with elastic around the ankle, facing the elastic. Lift the leg and slowly bend and stretch the knee.
Sit on a chair and lift the knee to a horizontal position. Hold for 1 minute, lower the leg to approx. 45 degrees for 30 seconds. Lower again to the starting position.
Sit on a chair with the injured leg on a stool or similar. Lift the leg above the stool with the foot flexed at a maximum, and hold the position for 10 seconds, followed by 10 seconds rest. The exercise should be repeated for approx. 3 minutes.
Lie on your side on a mattress or bench. Flex the lower part of the leg and stretch the upper part. It is important to completely stretch the hip. Lift the upper leg upwards with the heel pointing towards the ceiling. Gradually increase the load by attaching a sandbag to the ankle.
Lie on your side on a mattress or bench. Stretch the lower leg whilst the upper leg is slightly bent. Lift the lower leg stretched upwards. Gradually increase the load by attaching a sandbag to the ankle.
Stand on the healthy leg with the elastic around the inside of the injured leg. Move the injured leg from side to side in a slow smooth movement. Moving the position of the elastic lower down the leg can increase the load.
Stand on the healthy leg with the elastic around the outside of the injured leg. Move the injured leg from side to side in a slow smooth movement. Moving the position of the elastic lower down the leg can increase the load.
Stand with the elastic around the injured leg, facing away from the elastic. Move the leg forwards and slowly backwards. The elastic can be moved up and down the leg depending upon the strength of the knee – the stronger the knee, the lower the elastic should be.
Stretching is carried out in the following way: stretch the muscle group for 3-5 seconds. Relax for 3-5 seconds. The muscle group should subsequently be stretched for 20 seconds. The muscle is allowed to be tender, but must not hurt. Relax for 20 seconds, after which the procedure can be repeated. The time consumed for stretching, coordination and strength training can be altered depending on the training opportunities available and individual requirements.
