Rehabilitation

The programme of exercises and stretches undertaken in order to return the knee to as full a function as possible.

Early exercises focus on maintaining circulation, and preventing swelling an inflammation. The focus then tends to move to establishing and maintaining range of motion, followed by rebuilding strength, balance, proprioception and returning the patient to full activities.
