Top 6 Exercises AFTER Total Knee Replacement (TKR) Surgery

Feb 19, 2021

If you’ve just had Total Knee Replacement (TKR) surgery, you’re now in what we call the “post-surgical” or “post-op” phase of your recovery.

This can be a busy time, between follow up appointments with your knee surgeon, physical therapy appointments, and trying to rest and recover.

With that in mind, there are 6 exercises you want to prioritize during this period (3 exercises for quad muscle activation and 3 exercises for knee range of motion):

3 Exercises for Quad Muscle Activation

->> Quad Sets

->> SLRs (Straight Leg Raises)

->> TKEs (Terminal Knee Extensions)

3 Exercises for Knee Range of Motion (ROM)

->> Stair Knee Flexion Stretches

->> Stair Knee Extension Stretches

->> Seated Knee Extension Stretches

I’ll demonstrate all 6 exercises in the video below and give you some guidelines for how many sets and reps you should perform each day.

I hope this video helps you make a full recovery from your Total Knee Replacement (TKR) Surgery!
