16 Weeks Post-op. Exercises

Posted , 5 users are following.

Just passed the 16 week marker. Knee is excellent, thanks to a gifted surgeon and intense PT. I have found that daily exercise is an absolute must to avoid stiffness and minor swelling. Some of the exercises that have been working for me are: stair climber, stationary bike with resistence between 15-20 for thirty minutes, knee bends with or without weights, speed walking, a step box about 18 inches high, and side stepping with resistance bands. Keep in mind, it is important to include upper body exercises such as weight lifting to your routine as well. Also, maintaining a healthy body weight through proper nutrition is a must. Best wishes on your journey to full health and mobility, regards RJ (67yo male-Florida).
