TKR Dead Weight: Is This You?

Hi everyone! I have received quite a few comments lately about the worries of having a very stiff tkr leg for a time after the surgery. This is no news to us who found out the hard way that this is a common event. Here’s some more insight…

Can Hamstrings Hurt after a Total Knee Replacement?

Hi everyone!I recently had someone ask me that, and the answer is a definite, resounding “YES!!” I originally wrote about this topic in 2008, and because I have received numerous requests for this article, it seemed logical to bring it to the front of my home page again. So, that is why you will notice comments […]

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 […]

I found another way to exercise this muscle recently and thought I’d share. Please remember it’s been almost three years since my tkr, so don’t try this if you’re new to the tkr recuperation stage.

You need […]

Dog Walking for TKR Exercise

There was a recent article on the American Heart Association’s website about using dog walking as part of your exercise routine. The article prompted my recollection about a recent event…

I just completed a dog-sitting gig with two of my friendly four-legged beasts. Actually, one is a mini-Schnauzer (sp?) and the other a Westie. A Westie […]

Using Ankle Weights & A TKR

Recently (today), I figured it might be fun and adventurous to start using 2 pound ankle weights on each leg while going on my daily walks.  It worked out great!  There is no way that my tkr leg would have allowed this only a few short months ago.  How time heals all, eh?

Until today, the […]
