Water Exercise & A TKR

We all know how beneficial exercising in water can be for sore joints, or for any condition. Recently, I had a chance to go swimming at a newly-built pool and thought I’d share my experiences.

I’ve always been curious about my tkr flexibility, 3.5 years post-tkr. I’ve heard such praise for water being a great way to increase mobility and range of motion. So..I signed up for an adaptive aquatics class out of curiosity.

It was great. I was given some exercises to increase my hip range of motion. On land, the movement was definitely not fun and far too discouraging since the effort did not seem to warrant many results. The exercise consisted of simply (“simply?!”) standing with my back straight, holding onto a chair for support and lifting my tkr leg to the side as high as possible.

In water, wow. I did not have to fight gravity since water contains a natural buoyancy that supports the majority of body weight, making movement more fluid and easy. I knew that beforehand, but wanted to see how it really worked after my tkr. Nice..Water also supplies a natural resistance atmosphere, strengthening muscles at the same time it stretches them. Water contains more than 14 times the resistance of air. Standing with my back against the pool’s side supported my back during the exercise.

Another exercise involved standing with my back against the pool’s side and doing a leg lift. Extending both arms, shoulder-level, and resting my arms on the pool’s side added extra support. The exercise consists of lifting both legs in front of the body, just below water level. Hold this position for 10 seconds, or as long as possible. Slowly return to the standing position. Repeat this exercise 10 times.

I was introduced to an exercise noodle, an aquatic workout tool, and am looking forward to learning about new uses. There’s an entire unexplored arena of aquatic tools beckoning. 🙂

And, swimming laps was a blast. Not only did swimming supply an all-body workout, but did it without any pain. Can’t wait to go back.

Back on land, my tkr knee is more flexible..without all the pain associated with land-based exercises. Nice. 🙂

Hope this helps others going through the same thing.

Do you have aquatic experiences you’d like to share with others? Feel free…

Find interesting? Kindly share…
