Another Flexibility Exercise for a Total Knee Replacement

While finishing up a recent workout involving riding my exercise bike, I came across another stretching exercise that seems to work well for me. It is a combination of flexibility movement and warm-down exercise. And, it’s simple.

All it entails is staying on the exercise bike, and moving the pedals back and forth – without making the complete cycle movement. It is similar to a rocking chair movement. Plus, it is a form of exercise without the vigorous movements involved in other tkr recuperation exercises.

I cannot overdo it since I’m not really exercising. Yet, I am increasing my flexibility on my bionic knee. So, it is a win-win situation. It’s a great thing to do for my total knee replacement recuperation process.

Added benefit: This exercise works great while sitting in front of the television. 🙂 In fact, I have found it is a great way to watch NHL Live! With EJ Hradek and Don LaGreca on the NHL Network.

Thought I’d share it with others who may find it appealing to them. 🙂

  1. thanks for giving another way to work on these tkrs. It helps me to read your posts and know how you’ve progressed. I’m 4 months out from bilaterals.

  2. Thanks for your positive feedback, Janice.

    I figured that if it’s working for me, it may work for someone else going through our tkr situation.

    Best of luck to you! 🙂

    Baking soda is great for teeth whitening. Simply wet your tooth brush and dip it into some baking soda.
    An all natural, cheap tooth whitener. 🙂
