Rehabilitation for Kneecap (Patella) Problems


 

Welcome to our health education library. The information shared below is provided to you as an educational and informational source only and is not intended to replace a medical examination or consultation, or medical advice given to you by a physician or medical professional.

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.

 

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 ease and quickness.
