Maintain extension during the early phase of the Rehab Cycle

When the knee has been injured or after surgery, the most comfortable position for the joint seems to be slightly bent.

This can be a problem as it is easy to lose those few degrees of extension - the quads become inhibited and weak and the hamstrings tendons at the back of the knee can shorten. It can be difficult to regain that extension if it is lost. So it is easier if you can at this stage maintain extension with a simple passive extension exercise.
