TKR Flexibility Exercises Using Stationary Bike

Hi everyone. Many of you have contacted me recently wondering about using an exercise bike for tkr (total knee replacement) rehab. This equipment played a crucial role in my tkr recuperation. Even 8 years post-tkr, I still use it to work on my knee’s flexibility. Here is more insight…

Get on a stationary bike. Of course, make sure everything is set to your personal preferences. Preventing injury always needs to be a key concern of anyone, any time. It is far to easy to cause more damage than good by having equipment set up incorrectly.

Instead of pedaling forward (which is hard enough when recuperating from a tkr), pedal backwards. And…hold on tight. This is easier said than done. When I first did it, the pain and difficulty were immense. With diligent practice, they both decreased over time. It is an excellent way to work on the hamstring muscles.

What also works for me is starting my exercise regime by pedaling forward. I do that until my tkr is not so stiff. This usually lasts a couple of minutes. Then, I pedal backwards. The movement is by no means fluid. Whatever it takes. I do the backwards gig for a bit and then return to my forward pedaling.

I also put in some stretching exercises using the pedals to stretch my outer tkr knee. Ouch…works, though.

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

  • eight weeks post TKR I am still having significant pain in the fibula. The fibula has been the pain center since the surgery. It now radiates slightly up and across to the center of the knee when I lift the knee without first tightening the muscles .
    Does this indicate injury to the fibula or just healing of the ligaments toward the meniscus.
    I wil see the Surgeon in early November but feel concern that ther is an injury to the fibula whiach is causing this pain.
    Comment? Thank you
