Again would yoga help with a situation like this?
edit- bionic hows your knee doing now?
I never got the same level of explosion I had before the injury but I am still pain free and I am not limited in what I can do.
That said only I can tell there is any difference and some of that might be in my head. I dunked a basketball before and after the injury. Those days are gone now though, not because of the knee though, but because of inactivity and I don't play bball anymore.
I guess not everyone will agree with me, but honestly for my ACL riding the bike was the best exercise I did to stabilize the muscles around the joint so I didn't need to rely on the brace.
