Using Recliners As A TKR Exercise Tool

Hi my favorite readers! Recently, I had the priviledge of communicating with one of my readers who shared some insight into sleeping after a tkr. It involved using a recliner.
This just goes to show that everyone is different during their recuperation process. Personally, recliners were far too uncomfortable for me to use during my first six months post-tkr. Even five years after a tkr, some of these furniture pieces are too difficult to use.

You can turn using a recliner into an exercise, though. How’s that, you ask? Well…
sit in the recliner. A typical recliner operates by applying pressure onto the foot and leg rest area. Use this to your advantage. Apply pressure with your tkr leg. You’ll definitely feel your leg muscles working. DON’T DO THIS DURING YOUR INITIAL TKR RECUPERATION STAGE. And…when you do it, do it at your own risk. I’m not responsible for any mishaps that may occur. It works for me because I take my time and have control over the situation. I know myself. It may not work for you.

Hope this helps others going through the same thing.
Find interesting? Kindly share…Thanks!

  • Those recliners are good for other things then sleeping aren’t they. I just released a patient in home health that used her recliner precisely how you described it on your post. She was not sure what she was doing or working but, she felt it was working her affected leg.

    I advised her she was incorporating her hamstrings with this exercise and helping to strengthen them during her period of recovery. As always use in moderation maybe one set of 10 repetition’s twice a day.

    As you point out, don’t do them the day you come home from the hospital, wait until you get the Ok from your therapist.

  • Hi Richard,
    Welcome back! Thanks for leaving your informative and helpful comment. Your professional insight adds credence. 🙂
    Keep in touch and good luck!
