Hi and thanks for the query,
It is true that water exercises and swimming exercises are recommended for knee trauma patients. However, a careful evaluation needs to be done. A better appreciation is usually gotten especially when a Magnetic Rasonance Scan is done MRI scan). Physiotherapy could also be helpful. An evaluation and the opinion of an orthopedic surgeon could be of immense help. Kind regards
