Allowed Activities Following Hip and Knee Replacement Surgery
Steven Marcinkowski, DPT
Over the years, conversations as to the do’s and don’ts of activity return following hip and knee replacements have changed in one very important manner – joint replacement patients want to resume as many activities as possible. The following is a general guideline as to what are the possibilities. The lists are separated into the two general categories of total hip replacement and total knee replacement. Within the general categories are the sub-categories of “Allowed”, “Allowed with experience”, and “Not allowed”. These lists are not all-inclusive for every possible activity and some have morphed from one category to the next as downhill skiing has done following knee replacement. Additionally, individual surgeon preference will supplant the following suggestions.
