Do this EVERY night until you achieve full ROM.

Make no mistake about it you will be sore for a few weeks. Ice the knee to prevent swelling and sleep at night with an immobilizer on the knee to prevent inadvertant movement or putting your knee in a compromising position while you sleep. You will regret it if you don't.

Good luck!
Yes yes. This is how I acheived ROM during Pre-hab. Im totally prepared for that.I also have an ice machine that will hook up to me and run 24/7 if I want it to. Apparently this is key in pain managment.
