Following your surgery and prior to your first pre-op visit, certain exercises are very important in order to restore your knee motion and maintain muscle function. Your rehab program will be advanced at your first post-op visit with your surgeon and physical therapist.
Use the ice machine as instructed or as often as possible, especially before moving the knee.
Crutches and immobilizer brace (locked straight) should be used at all times while walking. You may put as much weight on the leg as is comfortable unless otherwise instructed.
