Hockey player with a present knee injury here. So I can talk a little about it since I've had to deal with this. My injury actually shortened my season. Presently scheduled for surgery next week. I have a meniscus tear, so on the scale of things it's not bad. Was told I should be back to full speed in about a month. Now what I've learned in all this is, that if your ligaments are strong and healthy that's a good thing, if there is any ligament damage at all, such as a tear, then it's something to be taken very seriously as this is the support structure for the knee. So in your case if you have suspected ligament damage, you should take great heed to the doctor's recommendation because pushing it could cause some serious knee damage.

I agree with the previous poster too, I've found that strengthening leg muscles greatly helps knee health. Just make sure your doctor says it's ok for you to do that.
