A 33-year-old member asked:

Would swimming be a good option given my knee injury?

Excellent option: Swimming is close to ideal for joint rehab.
Dr. Daniel Solomon

Great: Swimming and water exercises are very well tolerated after injury or a couple weeks after surgery. (get cleared by your md after surgery ) moving in the water should help you get range and strength back.
