Do you recommend isolation movements like leg extensions and leg curls to strengthen the knee joint and get back to playing a sport? some say isolation movements are potentially harmful and you should only do compound lifting, like squats, some say isolation movements can be helpful...could you settle the issue for me?

i just went thru a total knee replacement and my new bff advised closed kinetic chain exercise.....feet on the ground or against a platform of some type......not open chain exercises....i.e. leg extensions and leg curls.
