Rehabilitation for Kneecap (Patella) Problems

Physical therapist working with woman's knee.Whatever your goals, your healthcare provider 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 your knee heal and by exercising your knee and its supporting muscles.

 

Stage 1

Starting to heal

You’ll work with your physical therapist or healthcare provider to reduce pain and swelling. Then you can begin to increase your knee’s range of motion.

 

Stage 2

Improving your knee’s function

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

 

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 knee’s function.
