If you get PBS on your television, then check out a daily show called "Classical Stretch". It's not really stretching as a movement theory she calls Essentrics. It's gentle.

You can check it out on Youtube and try a snippet to see if it will work for you.

I, too, say speak with your Physical Therapist (PT). Any exercises we suggest here may cause further harm. If you don't have a PT, ask your doctor for a referral. I have worked one in the past and it was wonderful.

I've had a hip replacement. Your safest bet is to ask your pt.

My mom has had a hip and knee replacement and has started working out on a recumbent bike that she purchased for home, and she also takes a restorative yoga class that is specifically for people with joint pain (that's not so much for calorie burning as it is for pain management, stretching and inflammation reduction). I'm sure you could google and find some restorative yoga poses online, but like Coach Jen said I'd be careful about doing anything too strenuous or that you're not cleared to do.

If you have access to a pool, you could also try walking in water which is very low impact but a great exercise.

Because of your medical history, your best bet is to ask your PT what's safe to do at home.

Good luck!

Help! I've had both shoulders, one hip and one knee replaced and am still doing PT for my most recent surgery (rt shoudler). Does anyone have exercises they can suggest that I can do at home without being on my knees or doing any jumping/running?

Always be the best you can be and show gratitude at the end of each day.
