Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

You can continue physiotherapy for upto 4-6 weeks which involves Quadriceps strengthening exercises as well as Hamstring stretches.

I suppose that you can walk freely within a month after proper rehabilitation.

Avoid high impact sports and deep knee bending activities. Use proper techniques when exercising or playing sports. Keep your knee strong and flexible.

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
