Is physical therapy important after knee microfracture surgery? My doctor told me i could just rehab it my self.
Physical therapy directed at restoring a full range-of-motion is appropriate in the first 6 to 12 weeks following micro-fracture surgery particularly if there is a fixed flexion contracture or limited flexion prior to surgery.
Motion without load is the preferred environment for articular cartilage healing.
