I don't know. Throughout my time at PT they had me with several different therapists, each with their own programs and exercises they thought I should be doing.

What worked best was working with the strength bands hooked to my ankle and doing side kicks, both inward and out, front kicks, and back kicks, all with a stiff, locked, knee. Then they had me squeeze a ball between my knees and do hack squats. I could really feel the difference in my knee after a few weeks. But pretty much they tried like 20 different exercises and picked the ones that didn't cause me any pain.

Going in to this season I felt much stronger than I did last year. But I am still dealing with some pain and weakness. I just ice and take ibuprofen if I feel pain or swelling after I ride and it gets me through a few days of riding pain free. Our season ends late March/early April so I plan on taking a few weeks off from activity to let it heal up. Rest is def priority in the healing process.

Rehab needs to be monitored by someone in person.

i bought a knee brace today to help stabilize it from side to side as i think ive been loading up alot on my back knee and putting pressure on the inside of it. i honestly dont know if its helping or hurting.

Do you ride goofy? I have the same issue especially when riding some of the long cat tracks on the mountain. It is part of a bigger issue.
I am sure if you saw a physio you may find you have IT band, hamstring or patella tracking issues caused by one or a few other muscles. You should at least go check it out with a professional. They can give you some relief and set some exercises to help prevent it.

Vastus Medialis Obliquus (VMO) exercises. They can benefit every snowboarder. Anyone who has had an knee injury more than likely has had to work this muscles strength back up.
