You bet it can. We all know how important cardiovascular exercise is for good overall health. It lowers risks of developing chronic illnesses such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and obesity while also increasing heart health. Did you ever tie in cardio with tkr rehab, though? Here’s something that may help you…

Another Use for TKR Pain Meds

Hi Everyone,

I noticed that some of you have been wondering about pain meds for dealing with tkr pain. Even though I am not promoting using pain meds at every opportunity, some time they just make things easier. Some may use pain meds to provide relief during sleeping after a tkr (or…attempting to sleep..:?). I […]

Another Hamstring Exercise

Strengthening the hamstrings (muscles along the backside of the knee) is important for everyone, especially us tkr recipients. 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.

Guest Post – Wound Healing Part II

Here is Part II of Karen’s article on Wound Healing. Enjoy!

PHASES OF HEALING

The four phases of wound healing are:

* Haemostasis,
* Inflammation,
* Proliferation or Granulation
* Remodeling or Maturation

Haemostasis

During this phase, which is initiated immediately, damaged blood vessels must be sealed off rapidly to prevent critical blood loss. The immediate response is for the blood vessels to […]

I have written before about how using an upright bicycles helps increase flexibility while recuperating from a tkr. The other day I noticed another benefit after riding…

It makes it easier to go downstairs. After riding my upright exercise bike for about five minutes (I wanted to increase flexibility before going for my daily […]

Did I Cry During TKR Physical Therapy? Is The Pope Catholic?

Another question I recently received from one of my readers was asking me if I ever cried during PT? My answer….Is The Pope Catholic?

I would sit in my room, with the door closed, and sob. The pain was unbearable. No matter what I did, it hurt. It hurt to stand up, […]

Why Comparison Is Not A Good Idea For TKR Patients

Even though it is a good idea to read about other tkr patients and their experiences, please remember that we are all different. Everyone recuperates at their own pace. And, everyone went into their total knee replacement surgery with a different background, different experiences. Some have experienced trauma, some have experienced aging, […]

Mind Control & A TKR

Actually, you can use your mind anytime…but I wanted to mention some of the things I have seen from people recuperating from a total knee replacement or dealing with the topic of falling. And, this blog post is in response to a couple of my readers who said I was lucky I didn’t fall […]

TKR Knee Getting Hot?

I have gotten questions regarding some of my readers wondering whether their tkr knee warmth is “normal”. I say “yes!”

Personally, it was during my in-home therapy sessions that my pt person told me to put my hand over my knee and feel the heat. This was after another grueling workout session. […]

Kneeling After A Total Knee Replacement

Hi my favorite readers! One of my previous blog posts consisted of an exercise involving kneeling on the floor. In the blog post I stated that I could do it. After giving it some more thought, I realized that was an understatement. A heavy duty understatement. Here’s the true story….
