Exercise for Gaining Flexibility in a TKR

Here is another great exercise that can be done for increasing flexibility in your tkr knee. After reading and hearing about it, I decided to give it a try and it works well for me. It doesn’t require any special equipment.

Sit in a chair with feet firmly planted on ground.

Slide your body forward, keeping feet planted.

Do this until you feel a stretch in your tkr knee.

Hold for as long as you can stand it.

Slide back to starting position.


Hope this works for you as well. Good luck!

  1. I am home after TKR and a 17 day stay in a rehab facility and am doing great! I had the minimally invasive cut (6 1/2″), and this has made a big difference, I’m sure. I did it all with only Tylenol and gel ice packs, both of which I still use when needed. The exercise where one slides the body forward on a chair is a terrific one, which I use. It allows us control, which is important. I am now having outpatient PT three days a week for a month and am using a cane. My only complaints are anemia, for which I’m taking iron pills, and sudden fatigue, for which I’m lying down! Summing up, if you can get a surgeon who has had extensive experience with the minimally invasive TKR, you sure will be better off!!!
