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. 🙂

  2. 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.

  3. 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! 🙂

  5. Hey everyone
    Does anyone have some advice on TEETH WHITENING products??

    I would be very thankful if you could point me towards any help.

  6. Hi UndereeGrip,
    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. 🙂
