In brief: Follow your docs --

Advise fully. Generally the ligaments gradually tighten as one grows older; pt to be done as advised ; supplemented with home exercises plan to be carried out without fail.
All these activities are helpful due to increased strength in the muscles, so as to counter the effects of the laxity of the ligaments. Any episodes of dislocations/subluxations should be promptly reported to your orthopod.
