In brief: Time, rest

Bones heal on their own given enough time and rest.
Physical therapy can be useful after the bones heal to regain mobility, range of motion, strength, etc.

In brief: Heal first

The knee needs healed first then physical therapy will help strengthen stabilize and restore knee function.
Pt can be used during healing to miniseries functional loss in the rest of the body.
