As a Physical Therapist I often hear the question, “Can I play golf again?” Regardless of age, skill level or gender, everyone—especially here in Florida, where we can, fortunately, enjoy golf year-round—is eager to return to the sport. Many times these patients are recent recipients of hip or knee replacements.
Recent statistics reveal that each year more than half a million people undergo hip or knee replacement surgery. In my research, I have found that every surgeon encourages his or her patient to resume golfing following the procedure. And, in fact, more than 90 percent of patients successfully return to playing golf.
