1) Lay flat on your back with a firm surface underneath. A bed is perfect.
2)Pull your toes towards your waist.
3)Keep heel on surface.
4)Hold this position for as long as you can.
5)Feel the stretch behind your knee.
6)Move your foot back to supine position.
7)Repeat as needed to stretch properly.
This is a great exercise when first out of surgery. Also, throughout the total knee replacement recuperation process….it’s a wonderful stretching exercise.
You can do this exercise alone. (Some others require supervision).
