Lifestyle modification after Knee Replacement surgery


As we age, our body undergoes numerous changes, and the weakening of bone strength is one of them. The knees are one of the most common joints to suffer from age-related degeneration. Knee pain because of osteoarthritis affects the performance in daily chores and activities.

Not all patients having osteoarthritis need knee replacement surgery. The surgeons only recommend surgery in severe conditions, such as unbearable pain, difficulty walking indoors, long-time sitting, and little to no effect of the medications on relieving ailments. The artificial knee replacement procedure can alleviate these symptoms.

Although it functions just like a normal knee, an artificial knee does have certain limitations, such as kneeling, jumping, high-intensity sports, or heavy weight lifting from the ground.

Recovery after knee replacement surgery is not a challenging task. Family support and proper guidance from the doctors’ team can accelerate the journey to recovery. After surgery, an accurate recovery and rehabilitation process is crucial so you can accommodate the repaired knee joint and return to the daily routine. The orthopedic surgeon and physiotherapist play a critical role in the recovery process. Within a few weeks or months, you will be able to regain the proper functioning of joints and strengthen muscles.
