Need help getting quad strenght back after knee osteotomy

SHARE

I had a distal realignment of L knee 5 months ago (3 weeks cast) and am desperately working on getting quad strenght back which isn’t working. You can see an obvious difference between L/R quad in seize, I do have some strenght but my knee gives out very often. When walking I have to “lock” my leg in extension or it gives out. Surgery was succesfull and tracking is at best. Can you please give me some good quad exercices? How can i get strenght back? I am no longer in PT. Advice please.. Thanks Faith

Thanks FaithGo back to the knee/leg exercises you were doing in PT, such as straight leg raises, 1/4 squats, heel raises,step ups, etc. and be faithfull for 3 months.
