Avoid sitting Cross legged. Avoid Squatting- Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports Taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area Contrast Fomentation (Hot and Cold).

Hello......tension band wiring is done for fractured patella if fragments of bone are intact.....pain ,scar, stiffness are common complication of tension band wiring....i t is important to discuss with the staff and ask for pain killers if needed. Keeping the leg up (elevated) on a frame or even a footstool will reduce the  pain and swelling.

Continue with the physiotherapy sessions and if not added add quadriceps release to your session following which it should be stretched to reduce loading. Keep on doing the hamstring and quadriceps strengthening with stretching sessions.
