Walking Surfaces Matter After a TKR

Hi everyone! I’ve written other posts before about walking as an exercise for recuperating from a total knee replacement. Walking surfaces matter as much as the walking itself, also. After 40 years of dealing with different types of walking surfaces and the effect on my leg length discrepancy, I would like to share some insight that can help others gain a better understanding about this sometimes “simple” topic. It’s amazing what we take for granted until it is gone or nearly impossible to accomplish. This is especially true after a tkr. Here’s the scoop…

Asphalt offers the harshest surface as far as joint impact goes, I have found. Orthopaedic literature, fitness publications, and bone health news state the same. As softly as I try to walk, I still notice and feel the impact.

Walking on gravel is no easy walk in the park, either. Gravel has a tendency to cause my ankles to sway sideways since it is so uneven. Even when wearing hiking boots, this can be discomforting. It’s especially discomforting due to my leg length discrepancy and need to wear a 1.75″ shoe lift.

I found a perfect solution last weekend. While walking on the beach, I stayed on firmly-packed sand. No joint impact at all. It was a very comfortable and enjoyable walk.

Walking on packed sand allowed me to walk further and receive a nice workout. It was quite enjoyable. It was especially nice not to end my walk by having knee area pain. 🙂 The only drawback was ending up with sand-coated boots. But, who’s complaining? Not me. I’ll take beach sand any day and twice on Sunday. 🙂

Thought I’d share this in case anyone else is going through the same thing.

Find interesting? Kindly share…Thanks!
