Activity after replacements : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread

I am 47 years old and about 6 weeks postop. I had bilateral knee replacements and have gone thru extensive PT. I am having trouble bending my knees. Both are at about 90 degrees. My doctor has suggested manipulation. Is it worth it? Also what are my athletic limitations. Can I ski, play tackle football, take up kick boxing or Taekwondo?

Contact sports are unwise after knee replacement. A manipulatin may help your motion.
