Knee Replacement

Can I ski after knee replacement?

A Answers (2)

  • You can ski after knee replacement, but only after demonstrating a complete control of the knee and having done a comprehensive physical therapy training program.

    Happily YES. You must, however, thoroughly rehab your buttocks, core, quad, hamstrings and work hard in therapy to regain all your joint range of motion.
    Most Orthopaedic surgeon encourage their active patients to remain as active as possible after joint replacement.
