As history indicates that the MRI shows there is a change in the biomechanics of the joints at the ankle and the knee along with ligament injuries. The first thing to do is to stabilize the knee and ankle joint using compression bandages and also using hot water fermentation to relax the muscles surrounding it.

Then static hamstring, static quadriceps, ankle toe movement's, straight leg raise and balance board training to correct the muscle imbalance and improve the joint stability.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
