Physio Note: Activity Precaution

Avoid resisted leg extension exercise which exerts shear forces on joint that may cause tearing of compromised ligament (non-surgical patient) or vulnerable repair graft (post-surgically)

Your physical therapist will utilize modalities to reduce inflammation, facilitate resolution of swelling, and speed healing and can help you set up a safe and effective exercise routine to meet your evolving needs
