Golf Physio Swing Analysis
It’s always been difficult to advise people what they should and should not do after having a total knee replacement. We have suggested that skiing, squash, tennis, running, jumping and contact sports are a bad idea. Good sports were thought to be walking, cycling, bowls and golf. Now a study has thrown this consensus into disarray.
A study recently presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) has shown that golf is not the entirely benign activity it was thought to be. Golf has been considered to be a low impact activity but it seems it can put a significant stress on an artificial knee.
