Knee exercises for physical therapy

Michael remains diligent with his rehab routine

 

 

 

This list is what I have been doing 3 times a week (not everything every time).  

All of these exercises should be done fluidly and reasonably slowly, in control.
  • Prone TKE
  • T-Band Stand TKE
  • Standing Hamstring Curl
  • Leg Press
  • Heel-Toe walk
  • Single leg balance
  • LAQ
  • Ball bridge
  • Ball hamstring curl
  • NMES SAQ (isometrically sqeeze quad)
  • NMES SLR (isometrically squeeze quad while raising leg straight)
  • NMES Quad Set (put something under knee and isometrically squeeze quad while raising leg straight)
  • Stool scoots
  • Sideways-hip abduct
  • Mini Squats
  • Step up – forward and lateral
  • Standing calf – raise single leg
  • Lunges
  • Elliptical machine forward and back
  • Bike machine
…and don’t hold your breath while you do them…
 
Other things I have found helpful:
  • Epsom salt bath at night
  • Ice, ice and more ice
  • Anti-inflammatories
  • Carbonated apple juice to combat nausea
  • Early bedtime and lots of sleep

 

I found a lot of these exercises (but not all) explained at
