Icing a new knee....OUCH!

Hi my favorite readers! After receiving numerous requests for this information, it seems appropriate to provide this reprint of a previous post to help those new to a tkr:

Part of my total knee replacement recuperation process involves, of course, physical therapy.  After I complete my exercises, I am offered icing.  At first it was “yeah!”.  Now, it’s…”OUCH!”.  See, instead of just lying on my back and relaxing (like I used to do while being iced), they have started a new torture device…er, technique.

My hamstrings need to be stretched out after 30 years of not using them properly.  My leg is not straight like it needs to be. So, to help this process along:  I lay on my stomach,  place my knee on an ice bag, and another ice bag contraption is placed on the back of my knee.  Then, a 2-pound weight is put on my ankle.

This entire process occurs after an exercise involving my knee hanging over the side of the table.

That timer can’t move fast enough.

Hope this helps others going through the same thing.

Find interesting? Kindly share…Thanks!

  • Ok, so when you are doing this, is your knee on the bed and your ankle hanging off of the bed? My leg is pretty straight. A friend who had tkr said they made her lay on her stomach with her leg, from just above the knee down, hang the leg over the bed. I’ve done that and it works too.

  • Hi Charleen,
    You’re describing the exercise I did prior to my icing segment.
    It worked great!
