Bend in the knee

Hi all, I am 10-week post-op, the surgeon has recommended I do knee pressure exercising, with my leg straight out and foot resting on a chair and my husband pressing down on the knee has I have a bend on the knee. But don't know if we should be doing sharp pushing or long ones, anyone has had this, please? Thanks all.
@susan_lyan The idea I believe is to apply pressure gently until it is a good stretch - you should feel it, but not be painful - and then keep the pressure there for a moment - remove, relax and repeat. Not sharp presses, that would hurt. It's about getting the stretch and holding it so a gradual pressure means you can get to wear you feel the work is happening but it is not hurting you.
