Phase 3




The exercises in Phase 3 will help you get back to normal bodily functioning by training your knees' strength and mobility.

Focus

During this phase, it is important that you take advantage of your newly trained mobility and stability to perform the strength training correctly. Strength training aims to get you ready for the typical stress on your knee associated with everyday activity. This requires exercises with a relatively high level of load on your knee. Of course, these exercises are adapted to your personal level of strength and mobility. Some degree of pain or soreness in your knee after exercising is still to be expected, but the pain must not increase from day to day and there shouldn't be any increased swelling.

Activities

You may freely continue any activities that do not provoke or worsen your knee pain. You can also perform activities that cause light pain, but the pain in your knee must return to the level of pain you were experiencing before performing the activity within 24 hours.

Avoid

Any quick change in direction that provokes knee pain.
