TRAINING LADDER FOR CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS: FOR RUPTURE OF THE INNER COLLATERAL LIGAMENT (RUPTURA COLLATERALE LIGAMENTUM MEDIALE/TIBIALE)
Unlimited: Cycling. Swimming. Light jogging.
Lie on your back. Draw the injured leg up towards your head so that the muscles in the back of the thigh become increasingly stretched. Perform the exercise with outstretched as well as bent knee. Hold the position for 20 seconds and relax for 20 seconds before repeating. The exercise can also be performed standing with the injured leg outstretched on a chair while the upper body is bent slightly forwards.
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 with elastic attached to the ankle. Raise the leg and slowly stretch and bend the knee.
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 good leg with the elastic around the inner side of the injured leg above the knee. Move the injured leg from side to side in a slow movement.
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.
Go forward on the injured leg until the knee is bent to max. 90 degrees. Stand up on the same leg and return to the starting position.
Stand on the injured leg up on a stool with the elastic around your waist. Stand facing the wall. Walk backwards up and down from the stool under resistance from the elastic, alternating between right and left leg first.
Lie on your back with a ball or firm round cushion under both feet. Roll the ball backwards and forwards in a steady pace while lifting your backside.
Lie on your back with legs bent and a ball between your knees. Squeeze your knees together for 25 seconds, and rest for 10 seconds before repeating.
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.
