Trying To Figure Out How To Meditate On A Blown Out ACL

I am not sure if I should avoid the meditation center  until my knee heals up but I blew put my ACL playing hockey this morning and I am on crutches in a straight knee brace. I tried getting down at home and swong my bad leg over my leg that is fine and folded up for proper meditation. It causes even more pain than I am already in to the point I can not focus. Should I just wait until I am feeling better to return to the meditation center even though it will not be until next year? I am also not able to participate in yoga class either.

  1. Proper meditation? You don’t need to “fold up” for meditation. Hopefully, you’re going to need those knees for a long, long time. You don’t want to have to replace one or both of them when you’re my age. For much of my adult life, I pushed my body until it began to push back. Finally, I’m learning. LOL


  2. Sorry to hear that. That hurts a lot. You may wanna give yourself a few days to let the tissues heal and inflammation to subside. I haven’t done yoga but if certain positions may cause more injury or delay the healing, it’s best to do it when swelling subsides.

    There are lots of different ways to meditate, and lots of different positions. You can sit with your legs straight, you can lie down, you can sit on a chair. If folding up hurts too much, just do it another way.
