Both my knees have had ACL reconstruction the Right knee about 14 years ago, the Left one 10/2013. I feel they are pretty strong but they still sometimes buckle and/or give way(usually my left, rarely my right). I want to get back into running but it feels like the muscles in my left knee won’t/don’t want to contract/fire when they needs to.
This also makes it hard to get back into Judo because sometimes it will just buckle, sometimes like when the knee is getting tired I can feel it start to want to buckle but sometimes it buckles unexpectedly which brings a mental element of trust into the problem.
I was wondering if there were any neuromuscular/proprioceptive exercises/routines, etc. that would be good to do to get the knee muscles to fire properly when they need to
as a trainer yourself, you certainly have tried all the obvious exercises.
I am not an expert in it but I have attended a session with Perry Nickelston on taping which may help you with your issue. Here is a link to one of his sites http://www.rocktape.com/dr-perry-nickelston-dc-fms-sfma/. Maybe this will do it.
