If you're a yoga enthusiast, then having a knee replacement surgery might be one of the toughest challenges that you'll ever face. While yoga is not usually recommended for people with mobility problems, it is actually encouraged after a knee replacement to help strengthen muscles and improve flexibility in your new joint. In this blog post, we'll discuss yoga poses and how they can help improve your recovery from surgery.
Starting off with yoga after surgery is all about staying within your limits. The last thing you want to do is push yourself too hard and cause more harm than good, especially when it comes to using the muscles around your knee joint! The four yoga poses that I recommend for beginners are Tree Pose, Bridge Pose, Child's Pose, and Savasana.
Starting with yoga can be overwhelming, but Tree Pose is one of the best yoga postures to help improve your physical and emotional well-being. This pose helps strengthen muscles in your leg, foot, abdomen, shoulders, hips and arms. It also aids digestion while providing stability for standing balance which you are likely to need after knee replacement surgery.
