I do a 15 minute Yoga program every morning that gets my entire body loose, and I try to pay special attention to getting my legs as stretched out as possible. Specifically, if I am laying on my back and I bend my surgically repaired knee-leg and then straighten it out into the air, it was make an audible pop the first ~2 times, but eventually it stretches itself out enough and stops doing it. I can also feel movement in the knee when it happens.
I don’t wear the knee brace anymore though when I run or do athletic activity, and I ran a 5k and felt good. I still get sore when it’s bent or straightened out for long periods of time, and it will be noticeably more prone to being sore if I’m dehydrated. All in all I’d say I’m still progressing.
