I had a cast removed for a fractured non-displaced patella at 4 1/2 weeks. Now it’s 5 weeks and I’m just wearing a knee brace, but with no screws so I can bend my knee. The doctor said it’s healing well, so the cast wasn’t necessary anymore.
I started to do some physical therapy but only with my leg straightened (such as leg lifts and calf exercises.
Is it okay to do light weight bearing pt exercises with a bent knee? My knee is really stiff, so I think I need to start doing full range of motion exercises, but I’m just not sure if it’s okay to fully bend my knee.
