I have spraind my knee, so I can't really do so much to exercise.

It's about 2½ weeks since it happened (while I played badminton). The doctor said that there would go 2-3 months before I could use my leg/knee completely normal again, but it's just a very long time not to do anything!

I can now walk normally, or sort of. I can't stretch it all out or bend it totally, but I can walk.

But what can I do for exercising? I can't run or jump or anything, so is there someone with some good exercises, tips or anything?

what about swimming?  you can use a pull buoy between your legs if it hurts to kick - it's one of these things:





I know running isn't an option, but if you can walk, can you use the eliptical?  also, you could always do planks and crunches and squats if all else fails.
