Nina Dobrev offers glimpse into recovery from dirt biking accident with new photos

Nina Dobrev is opening up about her recovery after the actress hurt her knee in a dirt biking accident.

In a series of posts to her Instagram Story Monday, Dobrev gave fans a health update about post-accident life. "The Vampire Diaries" star shared several photos from her recovery process, including a picture of herself wearing a leg brace. Other photos showed Dobrev holding a large floral arrangement and eating some waffles.

“In case you've been wondering what I’ve been up to,” Dobrev wrote. “Eat. Sleep. CPM machine. Physical therapy. Repeat. If you’ve had this injury, you know what a CPM is…the rest of you won’t."

According to Verywell Health, a CPM (or a continuous passive motion machine) is a "motorized device used in physical therapy that gently bends a joint back and forth to aid with recovery following a joint injury or surgery."

During an appearance on "The Talk" last week, the "Reunion" actress opened up about the accident, which coincided with her first time riding a dirt bike. “I don’t recommend it, guys. ... It’s OK, I learned a lesson: Don’t ever get on a dirt bike,” she said.

Dobrev said her injury took place when she inadvertently did a wheelie on the bike and "lost control." She added that she sustained a fractured knee, as well as damage to her ACL and meniscus in the accident. "When I landed, I landed on one leg straight, and my knee just, like, snapped,” she said.
