Rehabilitation for Kneecap (Patella) Problems

Whatever your goals, your doctor may recommend that you see a physical therapist to help you reach them. Whenever possible, the goal of your 3-stage rehab program is to get you back to your normal activities. This is done by helping you knee heal and by exercising your knee and its supporting muscles.

Stage 1

Starting to Heal

You'll work with your physical therapist or doctor to reduce pain and swelling. Then you can begin to increase your knee's pain-free range of motion.

Image

Stage 2

Improving Your Knee's Function

You'll begin flexibility and strengthening exercises. This helps build up the muscles around your knee.

Image

Stage 3

Practicing Everyday Moves

You'll get your knee and leg ready for everyday activities. You'll work to relearn movements and improve your ease and quickness.
