Basic/Range of Motion Exercises
Initial Surgical Exercises Introduction
Each exercise page has four exercises focused on achieving full knee extension and full knee flexion.
Continue the exercises for the next 1-2 weeks. At that point transition to Strengthening 01, but continue to perform your range of motion exercises. You will find that as you begin to walk more and strengthen more you may end up with additional swelling and stiffness. When this occurs, back off the strengthening and walking for a day or two and continue just with the 4 basic exercises. Once the swelling has resolved, resume Strengthening 01 and increased activity.
