How many times a day should you exercise after knee replacement?
As a surgeon, I recommend you exercise your knee joint at least two or three times daily after surgery. Remember, walking with purpose is a simple way to begin your exercise routine. After surgery, you should walk with purpose several times a day.
What exercises should be avoided after knee replacement?
Baseball, basketball, football, hockey, soccer, gymnastics, jogging, rock climbing, hang gliding, parachuting and high-impact aerobics are activities that should be avoided.
Can you damage a knee replacement with too much exercise?
Performing movements or exercises that are too intense can increase the chances of loosening or fracturing the bones around the implant. Pushing too much can also lead to increased pain and swelling around the knee, slowing down the rehabilitation process and making it more difficult to exercise.
