  •  Castor oil and a heating pad will help with the (0+ / 0-)

    pain in the legs.

    Exercising using leg curls--no weight, just repetition helped me. But It took time. Also the injury was fresh (not 26 yrs old) so you might want to run that by a PT.

    As you get strong enough, if you feel comfortable and have the balance, roller skating or blading is a good way to strengthen your legs around the knees and ankles and in the bottom of the feet. It will also help some with core muscles because you have to keep your balance.

    Acupuncture would also be something to try, as drug free pain management.
