Exercising with an injury

Hello all...to cut a very long story short, i have had serious problems with my ankle several times this year which has restricted my ability to exercise, i also just tripped and fell on my knee, it seems quite bad and i think i may have damaged it!!

So, i cannot do any exercise which involves the use of my right leg, basically...all i can do is the stretches my physio gave me for my ankle...

Does anybody have any idea of what type of exercises i can do which wont damage my ankle? i'm going to go back to the gym tomorrow...even if all i can do is upper body weights i want to do something! any ideas?? there's no swimming pool unfortunately...also if anyone has any ideas of what could speed up the healing?

Hi, besides doing upper body exercises you may continue to do stretching exercises for your ankle as told by your physio. Another good option is to do yoga. You may also do some cycling in the gym but only if you are comfortable. I hope this helps.
