Ankle Weights and Knee Replacement Recuperation

Hi everyone. Many of you have contacted me about how to use ankle weights during your tkr recuperation. The two go together like apple pie and ice cream. Here are a some of the most beneficial exercises that helped me during my total knee replacement recuperation period. I still do them years after my tkr, fyi.

1) A simple way to get some flexibility back into the knee, is to securely wrap one of your 2-5-pound ankle weights around your tkr-side ankle. Start walking. Just by walking around, it helps stretch and strengthen your hamstring. The stronger your hamstring, the more secure your bionic knee becomes.

2) Do a knee extension. Start by sitting in a chair with your feet on the floor. Place one of your ankle weights around your tkr-side ankle. Slowly and gently lift your foot from the floor and begin straightening your knee. Be sure to keep your toes pointed toward the ceiling. Hold for five seconds, if possible. Slowly return to original position.

3) If you are like me, your tkr knee will be bent after your total knee replacement. Here is a wonderful maneuver that I used to help straighten my leg: Sit in a firm chair. Lift the heel of your tkr leg onto another chair.

The back of your knee will be unsupported. Then, put one of your ankle weights on top of your bionic knee. Be sure to start out with a lighter weight for safety purposes. Stay like this for at least 5 minutes. It will hurt…

Keep working at your tkr recuperation. It is a long and arduous process, but it will come…..:)
