exercise prior to operation
« on: November 24, 2004, 03:13:27 PM »
I need to have two new knees in about a years time and want to keep my legs as strong as possible in the meantime without any damage. I particularly wish to continue golfing. What are the best exercises?

Thanks but this seems only to relate to rehab exercises

Strengthing  by doing straight leg raises should help you both before and after surgery.  Most PT instructors advise these exercises.
Half arc leg raises also help strenthen your legs as well as heel slides.

You can google search for instructions on how to do all these exercises.
