I have written before about how using an upright bicycles helps increase flexibility while recuperating from a tkr. The other day I noticed another benefit after riding…
It makes it easier to go downstairs. After riding my upright exercise bike for about five minutes (I wanted to increase flexibility before going for my daily walk), I had to walk downstairs. I couldn’t believe how much it helped.
Usually when I walk downstairs, there is pain alongside the outer portion of my tkr (due to nerve damage). It didn’t happen this time.
Plus, my flexibility was increased. Nice.
I hope it stays this way.
Now, I’m afraid that since this post is going to published….Murphy’s Law will follow and have me back tracking. ? I’ll take my chances..:)
Find this interesting? Kindly share it with others…
