Physical Therapy in Twin Falls and Buhl for Knee

Stand in a split stance with your right leg forward. 

A resistance band should be attached in front of you with a loop around the back of your right knee.

70-80% of your weight should be on your right foot with moderate tension on the band.

Arch the instep of your right foot slightly and bend your knee 20°-30°.  Pause and pull your knee straight again by contracting your thigh muscles.  Don’t just shift your weight backward. 

Try to control your knee as you take if from straight position to bent and back.  Don't let the joint buckle or hyperextend.

Hold and repeat as advised by your Center for Physical Rehabilitation Physical Therapist.
