Physical Activity & A TKR

There will be times when it feels like there is nothing you can do to help your tkr recuperation process. I know, I’ve been there. We’ve all been there. Even when it seems fruitless, you need to exercise. You need to get up and move about. Pain or no pain, move. (And, you will be in pain, sometimes extensive, during the original phases of tkr recuperation).

Your blood circulation will increase, which helps all parts of your body. . It does not matter how strenuous the exercise, or physical activity, is. Immediately after surgery, the simple exercise of tightening your leg muscles will help. As you progress along your tkr recuperation, the act of walking will be fun (and a lot of work at times). Obviously, any movement involves increased circulation to the affected area. You will wake up and feel more alive.

Best part of getting physical activity? It speeds up your recuperation process. You will notice a decrease in your aches and pains. Your overall mood will change to the positive. Your body is meant to move and be used. You will start to look forward to getting your daily dose of exercise. It will be a welcome treat, in fact.

Physical activity is a natural health promoting remedy for a variety of health ailments.

So…go for it! Good luck!

(Waiver: As with any exercise program, check with your medical care provider prior to starting the program. This will help you avoid undue harm.)

  1. Amen and pass the offering plate!

    I am swimming daily and exercising my knee in the pool in as many ways as I can think of to increase the flexibility and bend.

    Even as hot as it is here in Texas, (I think we’ve had 15-16 days of 100+ degrees this summer) I love summertime and my pool! When summer is over, I will have to go back to my bike……lol….if it will have me!

  2. as my daughter would say TRUE THAT!!! keep moving to keep moving.
