Hi everyone. Sending the best wishes that this New Year is finding you in good spirits and that you are working hard to make yourself better. Have you thought about making music part of your total knee recuperation (tkr)? Music and tkr recuperation…YES!!
We always hear that music soothes the soul. As a musician, I have seen and heard remarkable things related to music. After listening to my performance, people regale wonderful stories that sometimes stand my neck hairs on end. Nice…It can work for you, as well.
Anyways, whenever the times gets tough…put on some music. You likely are already doing this, but for those who forget about the powers of music..get started. The sooner, the better.
With so many genres available, there is bound to be one (or more) that suit your individual preferences. What is even nicer, is the fact that there is music available to suit your mood at any time.
Music can transport you to a happy place when those tkr recuperation exercises seem like they will never end.
Music can also take your mind and soul to a relaxed state that is perfect upon the completion of your workout. Whatever the need, music will satisfy it.
To quote Dr. Daniel Amen, “The best music is the kind that inspires a different feeling or emotion, the kind that elicits a reaction.”
There are numerous studies and professional resources available touting the benefits of music. Check them out if you have some time.
So…put on your favorite music and help your blood pressure, mood outlook, energy level, and other health-promoting items.
