Can you Run and Drive after a Knee Replacement
Surgery?
  • Knee replacement surgery is a major operation
    that can change your life.
  • Your knee is a complex joint that works together
    with your other joints throughout your body.
  • It is a serious procedure designed to relieve
    pain caused by arthritis and restore knee
    function.
  • After your knee is replaced, most people are able
    to continue their normal activities.
  • However, some people experience pain after knee
    replacement surgery that can limit their
    activities.
  • Taking care of your new knee joint is just as
    important as taking care of a baby, as they are
    both equally weak.
  • Theres no denying that a natural knee is
    stronger than an artificial one, however, if you
    do have an artificial knee, read on to know the
    risks of running or driving after a knee
    replacement surgery.

  • Know the Risks of Running and Driving After Knee
    Replacement Surgery
  • People who have had a total knee replacement are
    at high risk of developing blood clots in their
    legs.
  • This is especially true if you are a smoker or
    are over 55 years old.
  • If you have a blood clot, it can travel to your
    lungs.
  • This can make you short of breath and have a
    sudden unexplained coughing fit.
  • Other complications of blood clots in the lungs
    include chest pain and difficulty breathing.
  • Another risk of running or driving after knee
    replacement surgery is falling.
  • If you have knee replacement surgery followed by
    normal activities, you are likely to have less
    strength in your knee.
  • This can make it easier to fall.

  • Avoiding Injury While Running or Driving After
    Knee Replacement Surgery

    fully recovered from knee replacement surgery
    before running or driving after knee replacement
    surgery.

    history of blood clots, you can wait a few weeks
    before trying running or driving after knee
    replacement surgery.
