Total Knee Replacement

I am looking for anyone who has some current information or experience in regard to doing CrossFit with total knee replacement.

I posted this question in another thread but I don't think many saw it.

Some folks posted about this topic many months ago. I am interested in the follow up.

Is there anyone on the forum who has experience doing CrossFit with total knee replacement?

I would really be interested in hearing about your experience. Thanks.

Re: Total Knee Replacement

Sporting after a totall knee is totally fine although I dont think crossfit might be the best option since its a high impact sport, although with some adjustments it could be done as well.

Re: Total Knee Replacement

Have two replaced hips/tears in tendons in achilles and some labrum damage in left shopulder - my experience/lessons learned from Crossfit:

Things I should have done better from the beginning: worked more on range of motion/scaled workouts more/not be locked into 3 on 1 off (should have listened to body more and adjusted schedule vice rigid with 3/1)

- Flexibility/range of motion to where it starts to hurt (let pain be your guide) are paramount.

- Hard to throw pride a side sometimes when you want to crush a workout, but best to give it a rest when your body is giving you indicators to not go.

Not a doc, nor medical professional, would heed the advice of your Doc/PT BUT, factor in the expertise of this board. Have found Mr Steve Lowe's information beneficial.

Hope this helps sir. God Bless

Re: Total Knee Replacement

Talk to your doc about activity on the knee.

Some are built for more activity than others.
