Bike Pedal Straps & Knee Rehab

Hi everyone! While doing research recently, I came upon an interesting piece of information that others were hoping to find answers to. It involves using a stationary bike during knee rehab. Well..we’re all experts in that area, so it brought some memories back that I wanted to pass along in hopes of helping others…

When first starting out riding a stationary bike during your rehab, use the pedal straps. I, personally, couldn’t have used the bike properly without those straps.

The straps help secure your foot to the pedal, of course, but also make performing the pedal cycle easier. The straps help pull the pedal up as your affected-side leg moves to the upper portion of the cycling movement. The strap increases resistance upon the affected-side leg. (Hope I explained that correctly). The strap also makes it impossible to stop the motion if wanted (cuz I guarantee the pain will be immense when first starting out!)

Without the pedal straps, my foot would not have properly pushed down upon the pedal or been used efficiently throughout the maneuver. It kept falling off. And, during the initial stages of rehab, my knee wasn’t flexible enough to keep my foot anywhere near the pedal. My bike workout would have been defeated without using the pedal straps.

Adjust the straps so they are firm enough to securely attach your foot onto the pedal, without squashing your foot or shoe or hindering your blood circulation. Go figure…

Hope this helps others going through the same thing.

Find interesting? Kindly share…Thanks!
