Exercise may not eliminate sound completely, but as they often disappear in time, joint exercise may help speed up the process. As long as the sound is not accompanied by pain, your knee arthroplasty may work well. Stop all exercise. If you feel any pain in this area, please call your doctor. Low-intensity aerobic exercise before operation is good for your new knee and overall health. Walking is the easiest way to stretch your knees, strengthen your legs and relax back to exercise. First use a walker, then use a crutch. Walk slowly around the block. Once you feel your cane is firm enough to walk without it, leave it at home. Walking up and down stairs or using a regular exercise bike can also help. Swimming is also a good exercise for your knees. When you are in the water, you will not hear any sound from your joints. Avoid high-intensity exercises that put pressure on the knees, such as running, gymnastics and soccer contact.
