I have a recumbent bike that I try to use at least three times a week, with those of you who have had TKR, when are you able to use a recumbent bike for PT? Thanks
I would sit on my bike and "rock out" while I watched episodes of Gunsmoke, Bonanza, and such on TV Land during my recovery. I still remember when I had my first revolution---backwards---on the bike. It was during Bonanza!I can just rock back and forth. guess its better than nothing. knee still feels very very tight
Excellent! I hope those that wish to rush their recovery by working past the point of pain and are aggressive in their rehab read this and put this on their refrigerator doors!I always use pain as my guide, if it hurts don't do it. The more aggressive the patient is, the slower the return to function. Everything in moderation.
I hope this helps,
