  1. Hi. .. post acl and meniscal injuries care should be focused on knee range and early activation and Strengthning of adjacent muscles such as quadriceps, hamstrings etc along with prevention of reoccurrence by applying knee brace. During initial stage after reconstruction end range knee bending exercises should be avoided. Better to perform exercises under survillance of a sports physiotherapist.
  2. The exact protocol of exercise varies depending upon the type of surgery like in acl repair whether its a semitendinous graft or patella tendon graft etc..the post op supervised physiotherapy starts from day 1 of surgery.If needed you may attend to a physiotherapy set up please consult your sports physio with all availble documents .
