The video offers tips for regaining full knee extension after surgery. It is essential to educate the patient on maintaining a range of motion and use a pillow under the knee to help with extension comfortably. Stretching both the hamstring and calf can address a tight capsule, and joint moves can help in relaxing the patient or promoting blood flow. Consistency over intensity is necessary, recommending five sessions of 10-15 minutes of exercise per day rather than one session of trying to jam the knee. Soft tissue work, exercises such as quad sets and retro comb walking, and icing the knee and compression with a wrap or sleeve are also crucial.
