How do I loosen my knee after knee replacement?
Knee bends (bed-supported): Lying flat in bed or on a mat, slowly slide the foot of your operated leg toward your butt as you bend (flex) your knee. Bend it as far as you can and hold for 5 to 10 seconds. Release, sliding your leg slowly back to your starting position. Repeat until you feel muscle fatigue.
