Activity-based knee exercise

Each session of the Prepare Well Orthopaedics programme includes an activity-based exercise.

Before you come in for surgery, it is important to keep as active as possible. Try and do what you feel is acceptable for you, building up gradually as you feel able.

There are some exercises which can help to keep the movement and strength in your knee. The links below will provide you with some advice and exercise videos you can try before coming in for your operation.

If you are waiting for knee surgery and want further guidance and advice on managing pain and exercising you may be suitable to attend our ESCAPE pain programme.

If you are struggling to keep active and feel it may be beneficial to speak to a Physiotherapist or feel you may need an assessment with a walking aid because of pain, please see our Musculoskeletal Out-patient Physiotherapy page for details on how to self-refer.
