Recovering From Joint Replacement
New Knee, New Class
Prior to total knee replacement, my doctor suggested swimming to build up the muscles. I went to water aquatics using my SilverSneakers membership before and after surgery. Granted, I was active already, I bent my knee at 102 degrees immediately after surgery and just kept improving.
A pool workout is low impact, with water’s buoyancy putting very little stress and strain on our bodies. But t also has exactly the impact we want, combining aerobic and resistance training, using all the muscle groups, with big benefits in a short amount of time. This is a fun, shallow-water class that uses a signature splash-board to increase movement and intensity options. Beginner to intermediate skill levels.
Improve hip mobility and the rest of our bodies follow. Especially our aching backs! (Talk to your doctor first, of course.)
