Do not start an exercise program without first consulting with your surgeon or physical therapist.
Regular exercise is important as it helps to restore strength and mobility to your knee, as well as help you make a gradual return to everyday activities. The following exercise program may be started now and continued until your surgery, as well as after your surgery to assist in your recovery.
