Towel Stretch Knee Exercises


Sit upright with your legs outstretched

  • Wrap a rolled towel around the foot of your operated leg and hold the ends with your hands.
  • Slowly pull the towel so that your heel lifts up and of the bed, whilst keeping the back of your knee flat on the bed.
  • Then contract your muscles above your knee, attempting to keep the foot in the air without the towel helping.
  • Let the towel loosen and attempt to keep the foot in the air for a count of 3, then slowly relax your muscles dropping the foot back onto the bed.

Repeat 10 times, 2 times a day
