Bike after Knee Replacement

Sue was back on a bike after knee replacement – in three weeks

HUDSON VALLEY, New York — The best phone call we can get is from a patient who has graduated from X10™ after their knee replacement, and is ready to move on. Job done. Box checked. Knee better. Patient… happy! So we were quite pleased to get that phone call from Sue after only three weeks. Both knees were working as she had hoped, Sue was doing the stairs, walking just fine and putting in miles on her stationary bicycle.

“At three weeks I told Todd to get this X10 out of here… I can ride a bike!”

We have come to expect great things of our X10™ patients. Sue is a perfect example. Here are the facts:

1) Dr. Scott Russinoff, Hudson Valley Hospital Center, Bilateral Total Knee Replacement
2) Just X10 for recovery; no home care therapist needed
3) Abbreviated outpatient therapy for just a few weeks at Millbrook Physical Therapy
4) Riding a bike after knee replacement, and and done with therapy (after five weeks)

We all experienced a thrill when Sue was riding miles on her bike at three weeks. What a great patient… what a great lady. Congratulations Sue and welcome to the X10™ 2K Club!

The Stationary Bike

The stationary bike after knee replacement is the perfect rehabilitation tool. But you have to get to about 115º range of motion to be able to use it. If you recover with the X10 you get to 115º in about two and a half weeks post surgery. At that point you are ready to transition to the bike and maintain that ROM (range of motion) for the months to come. With this program you beat the creation of scar tissue (fibrosis) and can rest easy knowing that your knee replacement surgery was a success.
