Seated Heel Slides
Be sure to consult your physician prior to beginning your joint exercise program and only exercise to your comfort level. You’ll obtain optimum benefit from your joint exercises if you do them twice a day.
How to Do: Sit towards the edge of the seat with your leg straight out in front of you and your heel resting on the ground. Bend your knee by sliding your front foot toward the chair. Bend your knee as much as you can comfortably without raising your hips off the seat of the chair. Then slide your foot back outward until your knee is completely straight again. Always keep your foot on the floor during this exercise.
When to Do: before and after surgery
Repeat this exercise 20 times
