After knee surgery you have to be careful how you exercise your knee to avoid an increased risk for complications.

Here is an example of some knee exercises for rehabilitating your knee:

Please consult your doctor before attempting any exercises. Discontinue if you feel pain or any unusual discomfort.

 Points to remember:

  • Make sure your back is protected
  • Use ankle weights as knee exercises becomes easier
  • Follow guidelines for beginners and increase sets and reps as you feel stronger

Again, always remember to consult your orthopedist prior to starting any exercise program.
