Answer

Postoperatively, the patient is started on a structured course of therapeutic exercise that initially emphasizes reestablishment of active quadriceps control and firing. This progresses to regaining full range of motion and then full strength. The patient concludes therapeutic recovery by gradually performing more and more sport-specific exercises until a controlled reentry to the sport is achieved.
