Knee surgery always results in some stiffness and swelling in the knee. This exercise is a great way to help your knee quickly regain its motion and help to circulate the swelling away from the joint.
- Sitting as shown, use the belt to passively slide your heel toward your buttock.
- When you get to the end of your knee range of motion pull on the belt to provide a good stretch and increase your knee flexion angle.
- Hold for 5 seconds and repeat 15 times.
- This exercise may feel stiff and somewhat uncomfortable but should not cause any lasting pain.
