Can Peddling Exercise Enhance Your Recovery?

This recent clinical study suggests that a peddling exercise protocol might be superior to traditional exercise and should be a part of your recovery plan for total knee replacement. Your Physical Therapist will know best and it might be worth adding peddling/cycling rather than replacing traditional treatment and exercise. (Link)

CONCLUSIONS:

A pedaling-based protocol in the immediate postoperative period after TKR was superior to a standard multi-exercise protocol in both functional and patient-reported outcomes, with these benefits decreasing over time.
