Knee in Home Exercises

Knee in Home Exercises

 

In order for knee replacement surgery to achieve the best possible results, you’ll have to take control of the rehabilitation process. An important part of this process is keeping up with your in-home exercises in between physical therapy sessions. Here are some examples of good exercises you can do easily on your own that your physician might prescribe. The number of reps will be dependent upon your physician’s recommendation.

 

  • Leg Raises

    Raise leg six inches above the mat, keeping knee straight. Slowly and gently lower it. Repeat.

 

  • Knee Extension

    Place a pillow under your bent knee. Lift your foot off the mat and lower it slowly. Repeat.

 

  • Ankle Pumps

    Flex ankle up and down.

 

  • Quadriceps Sets

    Straighten your leg and tighten your thigh muscles. Hold the contraction for five seconds and repeat.

 

  • Heel Slides

    Make sure you’re wearing socks for this one. Slide your heels backwards towards your body to flex your hip and knee. Return knee to the straight position.
