Yoga as TKR Recuperation

Hi my favorite readers! Yoga has become mainstream as being the ideal way to rejuvenate the mind, body and soul. There is something particularly interesting about this ancient practice, however. It seems that the more we learn about yoga, the more we realize how intertwined it is into a variety of life’s areas. I am speaking about calisthenics and tkr recuperation, for this article’s purpose.

Look at any of the calisthenic stretching exercises and you will find a common yoga thread. Some of the yoga positions may be altered, but the basics are there. It’s quite interesting, actually. Of course, all exercises have standardized Western names to fit them in more perfectly with the culture. Go online to any reputable yoga site. Yoga Journal comes to mind. Find a list of postures. Then, go online to any fitness site and check out the flexibility exercises. Compare the two and find the similarities. If you do not want to go online, simply pick up a hard copy of your favorite yoga or fitness-oriented publication.

Case in point: While recuperating from a tkr, or total knee replacement, a common exercise concentrates on stretching out your hamstring. As you probably know, this is the muscle that runs along the backside of your knee. It plays a crucial role in properly supporting your knee.

One particular exercise is known as a wall slide. The wall slide involves laying on your back and placing your tkr leg on the wall. To stretch your hamstring, you need to place as much of your leg as possible against the wall.

As it turns out, this same position is titled a “Supported Inversion” in yoga. This posture is currently being promoted as one of many postures that can help you get a sound night’s sleep. Go figure.

Life is intertwined, isn’t it?
