Hello--

A) I would think that a letter from your doctor outlining your knee injury and restrictions would allow you an out from the contract with the fitness center ( it may depend on clauses which may have been in contract if you signed one as part of this deal)

B) Depending on the nature and severity of the knee injury you may be able to take partial advantage of the exercise center . You want to avoid leg pressed and knee bends ( especially plus weights )Avoid any stair climbers

you may benefit from upper body resistance equipment...you may benefit from a stationary bike ( depends on the injury ) that would be non weight bearing and limited range of motion.

I hope that this is helpful for you.Let me know if you have further questions or discussion.I will be happy to get back with you.If my answers have been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback.Thank you and Best Regards,

Anthony Bray MD

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
