My problems was more of the stabilizing muscles than the big ones. My PT had me starting with hip exercises, extremely shallow (like 1.5"" of movement) single leg squats and balancing on one leg on various foamy type materials. I had to work up to doing squats with my back on a yoga ball up against a wall. Some exercises can be counterproductive depending on your specific situation and the rehab time can be quite long which is why I recommend seeing a doctor ASAP. Waiting a couple months might make it too late to be better by spring.
