In brief: Quads/Hamstring
You need to start working on quad/hamstring strengthening.
There are many exercises to do this which you can do in the physical therapy, gym or even at home. You can look these up online.

In brief: Quads& hamstrings
Isometric quadriceps contractions 10 reps 3 sets 3 times a day takes 5 minutes and is safe.
Terminal extension exercises ( squats but only the 1st 30-40 degrees, leg presses only bend 30-40 degrees, knee extension machine, again from full extension to 40 degrees of bend). Hamstring curls but careful on machines that put you in a hyperextended position.
