Another Benefit of Isometrics After a TKR

A couple of posts earlier, I mentioned how isometrics involving the buttocks was a suggested exercise prior to undergoing a total knee replacement. It helps strengthen the muscles to aid you during your tkr recuperation process. It goes without saying that we need all the help we can get. 😕

Anyways, I have come up with an additional reason to do this exercise. I “discovered” it when experiencing my pain due to nerve damage. Here’s how it goes….

When my nerve is kicking out the pain, I do my buttock isometric exercise. Why? It turns out to be a great counter irritant. 🙂 That means that it eases the nerve pain due to emphasizing the feeling of tightening my butt muscles. It’s cool….

As another example of a counter irritant, I’ll use the popular remedy known as Ben Gay. Ben Gay is known as a counter irritant since it causes the skin to tingle so tremendously that one forgets about the joint pain (the symptom they are trying to ease). Instead of the joint pain being an irritant, as usual, the skin tingling takes precedence. 🙂 Due to this, one thinks that the joint pain is gone. I hope I’m explaining this well.

Anyways, I am pleased to know that my all-natural approach to smacking my nerve pain can be done by using my butt muscles (or, “glutes” as fitness folks like to say).

I’ll stop patting my back now, it’s hurting.

Hope this helps someone else going through the same irritation of having nerve damage pain while recuperating from a total knee replacement.

Find interesting? Kindly share…Thanks!

    I’m going to try your exercise. I have nerve pain in my feet from diabetic neuropathy and now the doctor thinks some of my continuing pain in the knees 8 months after btkr is also nerve related. Don’t think the butt crunches will help the feet but sure would be a relief if it helps the knees!
