How to Save Yourself From Having a Knee Replacement Later in Life


Knee replacements have become prominent in society in recent years. Especially among older people. And as more and more people are being given the option to replace their knees, they're finding out that it's not just expensive but risky. If you want to avoid the pain, scarred tissue buildup, infections, and other risks of having a knee replacement surgery later in life, then here are things you can do.

Exercise Regularly

Exercises for your knees are the most important thing to do if you want to maintain healthy joints. These exercises include basic ones such as squatting, stretching, calf raises, and lunges. Some of the more advanced exercises are stair climbing and calf jumps. If you go to the gym, use the exercise bike or treadmill.

Eat Healthy Foods

It's best to eat foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals. These foods include beans, nuts, whole grains, and fruits. Fruits also contain sugars which aid in the healing process of your knees. Also, foods high in antioxidants will help you prevent damage caused by free radicals and may help maintain the proper functioning of your body.

Schedule Regular Appointments with Your Doctor

If you have joint pain, then seeing your doctor should be a priority. The doctor will be able to diagnose why you are having knee pain and give you an exact treatment schedule. You can also consult an orthopedic surgeon. Orthopedics is a special field of healthcare that deals with the bone system, healing bones, and other bodily systems.

Wear Comfortable Shoes

Don't wear shoes that are too tight and hurt your knees because this can cause you pain or cause damage to your joints. You should also wear shoes which are the proper fit for your feet. This will help prevent problems with your knees and toes and other parts of the foot, such as the arch. Your shoes should be made from a material that is lightweight and comfortable.

Keep Your Weight in Check

Keeping your weight in check is essential because excess weight can cause joint inflammation and tissue damage. This extra weight can constantly put more stress on the knees, which may lead to knee pain and, later on, to wear and tear in the knees. The best way to keep your weight under control is by eating less, eating healthy foods, and including exercises that workout your lower body.


It is never too late to start living a healthier lifestyle. If you start working out now and continue doing so, you can significantly reduce the risk of your knees becoming too stiff and painful in your later years. If you are getting knee replacement surgery, make sure to go to a registered medical expert who will be able to answer all your questions and worries that you might have.
