  • Reducing swelling
  • Assistance with early walking
  • Gentle manual therapy to restore the joint range of motion
  • Pain relief
  • Simple exercises to begin for regaining muscle functions without disruption to healing

  • More difficult strength based exercises
  • Introduction of some balance and proprioception tasks

  • Soft tissue treatment to ensure regaining of full mobility
