Golfing After A TKR

Recently, I took a golf class. It’s been 28 months since my tkr. I noticed that my knees were hurting after wards. I also noticed that my knees were being used in a way that I’m not used to. Plus, my tkr leg needed to be positioned specifically to allow my lower body rotation. When I was doing online research today about tkr stuff, I came upon some info that cracked me up. It kind of falls into place my recent golfing experiences.

It turns out that recent research shows that golfing is more damaging to a tkr than previously thought. This is according to info I found on the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons’ website. Research states that golfing is not considered a low-impact sport. Walking is far better.

Go figure..
