Walking as exercise for a Total Knee Replacement

The simple act of walking can do wonders for helping the recuperation process after a total knee replacement, I have found.  By walking, a definite effort needs to be made of maintaining or developing the proper gait.  I needed to learn how to walk again after 30 years of wearing a shoe lift, so it’s not as easy as one may think.  I needed to retrain my muscles.

The more I walk, the more I notice a greater swing to my knee.  My hamstring is stretching as is the front of my knee (I can’t remember what those/that muscle is called).  Anyways, that is a nice feeling.  First time I noticed a ‘swing’ it felt really good.  However, later in the evening, wow….did it hurt!

And, the more flexibility in the hamstring and front of the knee, the easier it is to go up and down stairs.  It’s easier to get in and out of cars.  And, my leg can lie flat on a surface without being propped up on a pillow.  Before, a pillow was required due to the pain level of my hamstring.  Cool.

Walking is great exercise, and it is cheap to do.  I’m still not at the point of hiking, but I will get there.
