Sometimes knee surgery is essential because of a meniscal tear or full knee replacement. The rehabilitation takes about seven to eight weeks. Until then, inflammation, redness or pain are eliminated. Once you are able to put your weight on your affected leg painlessly, you are ready for Bikram (hot) yoga. It is better to go slowly at the beginning - right after the operation. If there is evidence of redness, swelling or pain, remember to freeze it. Also avoid stretching or bending the leg too much. The Bikram Yoga works for one and a half hours in very challenging poses in a room with a temperature of 105 degrees Fahrenheit and a humidity of forty percent to rid the body of all toxic wastes. It also increases the strength and elasticity of the knee after surgery; and prevents injuries in the future
Rewards of Bikram Yoga after surgery
- Strengthens the inner and outer quadriceps
- Strong inner, outer, upper and lower muscles support the weak knee
- Increased blood flow and nutrients for the affected knee
If you want to get back to lifestyle quickly after knee surgery, it is important to do so with extreme caution. If you take false poses or exceed the limits, your knees can be further endangered. To practice Bikram Yoga while you recover, consider the following.
- Keep your feet well positioned and aligned. Push most asanas through all four corners of your feet. If your feet are not in the right position, your knees will be affected.
- Your knees should be in line with your ankles and not over them. This is especially important for lunges and squats. The knee must point towards the metatarsus. When standing with your leg outstretched, think forward to pull up the arch of the foot.
- Some postures in Bikram Yoga require locking the knees. You can pull in the knee caps to take a pose. If you need to overstretch your knees for a particular posture, keep your knees slightly bent in most standing and forward-folding positions.
- If your hips are not fully opened or stretched, your knees will need extra pressure during most postures. You must open your hips early in a class to avoid this strain on your knees.
