Knee Replacement

How should I climb stairs after knee replacement surgery?

A Answers (1)

  • After knee replacement surgery, be safe with stairs. If you must climb stairs, there are a few things to keep in mind to be safe:
    • Avoid stairs if you are unsteady or dizzy.
    • Climb the stairs one at a time.
    • Do not switch feet for each new stair.
    • Use crutches if instructed by your therapist. Your therapist will have you practice stair climbing, if needed.
