    Hi Lydia,
    Low intensity hill work (walking), or if you have no hills, pole work is just as effective.

    You want to strengthen the muscles that relate to the sifle joint, namely the quads, and also the ligaments affected, and these guys take a long time to build strength.

    Have a squiz in here, she has ALOT of links, i havent checked them all out but they seem good.

    Good Luck
