In brief: Follow doctors rx

Physical therapy is the key to your recovery.
You will begin physical therapy within hours of your surgery. The goal of physical therapy is to get the knee moving so that the reconstructed ligament does not stiffen and shorten, causing further problems. The joint will become rigid if the knee is not exercised properly. Failure to perform the physical therapy exercises cause tight, stiff knee.
