The following exercises can only be considered as a supplement to the guidelines furnished by the doctor which performed the operation. Specific precautions are necessary as the operation can be complicated. The training must not bring about swelling or pain in the knee.

The indications of time after stretching, coordination training and strength training show the division of time for the respective type of training when training for a period of one hour. The time indications are therefore not a definition of the daily training needs, as the daily training is determined on an individual basis.

Sit on a chair with the injured leg on a stool or similar. Lift the leg above the stool with the foot flexed at a maximum, and hold the position for 10 seconds, followed by 10 seconds rest. The exercise should be repeated for approx. 3 minutes.

Lie on the floor with the injured leg. Press the leg against the floor and tip the foot up. Hold the position for approx. 10 seconds. You have to feel a stretching of the anterior thigh. Rest for approx. 10 seconds. Repeat the exercise for approx. 3 minutes.

Stretching is carried out in the following way: stretch the muscle group for 3-5 seconds. Relax for 3-5 seconds. The muscle group should subsequently be stretched for 20 seconds. The muscle is allowed to be tender, but must not hurt. Relax for 20 seconds, after which the procedure can be repeated. The time consumed for stretching, coordination and strength training can be altered depending on the training opportunities available and individual requirements.
