In brief: ROM exercises

Common range of motion (rom) exercises are heel slides, cycling, and wall slides.
These are started early in physical therapy. More vigorous rom exercises would be things like stair lunges. Most importantly, you should consult with a licensed physical therapist for a full evaluation to address your specific rom limitations and they will prescribe appropriate exercises for your particular case.

In brief: Flexion & extension

Simple exercises include sitting with your knee straight and repeatedly tightening your quad to work on extension or sitting with your knee bent allowing gravity to help with flexion.
