Whatever your goals, your healthcare provider may recommend that you see a physical therapist to help you reach them. Whenever possible, the goal of your 3-stage rehab program is to get you back to your normal activities. This is done by helping your knee heal and by exercising your knee and its supporting muscles.
Starting to heal
You’ll work with your physical therapist or healthcare provider to reduce pain and swelling. Then you can begin to increase your knee’s range of motion.
Improving your knee’s function
You’ll begin flexibility and strengthening exercises. This helps build up the muscles around your knee.
Practicing everyday moves
You’ll get your knee and leg ready for everyday activities. You’ll work to relearn movements and improve your knee's function.
