It might be worthwhile to consult a physical therapist so you can find out what is safe, not safe, what might cause more injury and how to avoid future knee injuries. My PT had me doing a number of exercises that were totally different from those given to some others with knee injuries so it's not like there is 'one size fits all' - so to find out exactly what type of injury and how severe it is would be important before figuring out what to do. My PT charged $80 for a comprehensive evaluation because I had insurance that would cover it and she wanted to determine what other injuries I might have. As it turned out, there were a number of things contributing to each other but if you don't have ins that covers it, you might be able to get a shortened eval and a much lower bill. My son got a similar eval for $15 because he is uninsured.
