Common Questions and Answers about Home exercise program knee


Avatar f tn As stated in the above post, do be sure and check with your doctor before beginning ANY type exercise program.
Avatar n tn ll have an exercise program, and most physical therapy equipment can be purchased for not a lot of money over the internet. Over time, you will get stronger in a way that suits you, and hopefully break out of your rut. But for any of us to tell you specific exercises to do is difficult, as we don't know what's really going on nor how strong you are nor how you'll react to a specific exercise.
Avatar n tn I'm 17 weeks into an exercise program to recover from being pretty deconditioned. Starting out with 10 minute walks, and now I walk 30 minutes or go 20 minutes on my elliptical trainer every day. My resting heart rate has dropped from mid 80s to low 70s, and anxiety or mild exertion doesn't send my heart rate above 100 like it used to. But the last couple weeks, I've noticed that my heart rate has been going up more rapidly on the elliptical trainer.
Avatar n tn Also, for the quad atrophy, you need to do some physical therapy or have them give you a home exercise program for quad strengthening. You need to have strong quads in order to support your ACL.
Avatar f tn How important is exercise to recovery? If someone has been in hospital for 9 weeks and is very weak it is difficult to "make " them exercise if they are not feeling well. Any suggestions??

Tbd Patients with heart disease and elderly patients should consult a qualified physician such as a good internist before beginning and exercise program.
Avatar f tn My dog tore the tendon in his left knee in the back. He had previously torn the tendon in his right knee. Both times we used conservative treatment and the knee healed. We don't allow (although he doesn't always listen) jumping up and we've blocked off the stairs. We also only let him out in the yard and don't take him for long walks. Should he be taken on longer walks? or do I continue with the conservative care guidelines. We can't afford to take him back to the vet yet.
Avatar f tn physical or occupational therapy, an exercise program, or wearing knee braces, to name a few. You may also consider some topical pain relievers such as capsaicin topical patches (Salonpas is one such product) applied 3-4 times daily when needed. A next step if topical therapies are ineffective may be to add Tylenol on an as needed basis.
Avatar f tn Doing crunches and planks won't get rid of that pesky belly fat, you will have to take up a form of aerobic exercise to burn fat. For a recovering knee injury I'd suggest either taking up swimming or even cycling.
Avatar f tn I need to find a moderate- intermediate exercise program while I'm pregnant. I'm nine weeks today. And I'm already showing... I'd really like to keep the weight gain healthy instead of excessive. If anyone knows where I can find a program like that let me know. Thank you!
1436330 tn?1284666036 30-7:00. I am really nervous about going but I cannot sit at home and hide or go to work and pretend everything is going to be alright. I understand I have to do the work to stay clean. I feel blessed to be double insured so I got to interview two progragms and choose which one I wanted to attend. Feeling anxious today.
Avatar f tn Since we do not have insurance it has not been recommended. Is there some home exercise that he could be doing to build up his strength and motion? It would be a great help if someone could help us.
1521115 tn?1305267562 Please look into this and consult your PCP who can best direct you on a good exercise and diet program that will not involve excessive or any knee motion. Maintaining or obtaining a healthy body weight is important is all aspects of our lives. Frankly I think a few extra pounds is better then being under-weight.... although there are some scientific facts on either side of the coin. :o) Also discuss your gastrointestinal symptoms with your PCP. NSAIDs did a number on my GI Tract....
Avatar f tn Look up the "butt bible" on youtube. It's hard work but so worth it. If you do the work you WILL REEK THE BENEFITS. I swear, works wonders. Or just do a crap ton o squats.
Avatar n tn I had back surgery and now am afraid to exercise. Are there any exercises I can do that will help promote weight loss and toning without hurting my back?
Avatar m tn At around the 3 month mark I found that when doing range of motion exercise with the left knee it seemed to catch when bending or straightening. When it caught there was a fair bit of accompanying pain. Now 3 months later that catching is still there, but does not seem to happen as frequently. I guess the full recovery time for each TKR patient will vary. My own surgeon states it can take up to a year.
Avatar f tn I've been motivated to be more active... I have lower back problems...but have been walking and doing aerobics in spite of the back issues....haven't done any exercise since Saturday because the lil bit of pain has turned into a lot and more frequent pain...feel like I'm on the verge of a flare up... What exercises other than swimming would be good for me?...that wouldn't aggravate my back?
1603542 tn?1297734997 Statistics say that 95% of those that do not improve do not follow the home exercise program as ordered. I have no idea if that is the case with you or not....if you are doing the exercises are prescribed and have no improvement please seek another opinion. It is possible the diagnosis is not correct. I wish you the very best and hope you will be soon be feeling much better Please let us know how you are doing. We are here to support you and please feel free to post again.
