Fall Prevention and Total Knee Replacement

Hi my favorite readers! While recuperating, and preparing, for a total knee replacement it is important to prepare your living area to help avoid falls.  There are a variety of ways to do your part involving fall prevention and total knee replacement:

* Remove all loose rugs that do not have a nonstick backing.

* Remove all loose rugs, period. Sometimes, depending on your balance, crutches and walkers will have a hard time getting around the edges of loose rugs.

* Remove all cords from the floor. If you don’t make certain that you can maneuver around them without causing any distress. I have known people who didn’t look down while walking and tripped over cords that easily could have been avoided had they watching where they were walking.  Being careful and aware of your surroundings is crucial for fall prevention.

* Watch out for small animals. They have a tendency to run under your feet quickly and without warning.

* I recommend not having any small animals (considered hazards) around for the first week after surgery. Do your part in fall prevention and total knee replacement instances.

* Don’t reach for anything above your head.  It is too easy to lose your balance this way.

* Don’t drink alcohol. This is common sense, but it does affect one’s balance.

* Don’t lean to either side while on your crutches or walker. Keep a square, safe reach area around you. Again, you will lose your balance too easily if you don’t.

It is easy to avoid falling while recuperating from a total knee replacement if you prepare both yourself and home beforehand.

Hope this helps others going through the same thing.
