Re: What to avoid with torn ACL (surgery not an option - now)

You should really get a second opinion on that because if you ever want to do anything like skiing again you'll definitely need it as you can tell. Heck, try to get it repaired really at any cost (preferably the least).

Basically you just need to do exercises where you're strengthening your knee whether it be the hamstrings, quads, abductors or adductors. Since you have pretty strong hams and quads already that's good. A lot of balance work to start engaging the smaller muscles around the knee would also be good.
