Shoulder replacement surgery is a serious procedure that requires preparation before it and a lengthy recovery period. 

Some people have the misguided idea that they will be able to get back to their usual activities soon after the surgery. However, depending on the surgery itself and its success, it takes up to six months (sometimes even longer) to fully recover and enjoy the benefits.

The first month is the most important for shoulder replacement recovery, and it's key to follow professional guidelines to avoid complications and ensure the recovery process is smooth. 

Here's what you need to know about shoulder replacement recovery.

Knees take a lot of strain during our lives - they carry us daily for years and support us through various activities and sports. 

That strain can become too much for some people, and they start experiencing knee pain, stiffness, and discomfort with time. 

When non-invasive therapies don't help, the last chance to remedy the situation and restore knee function is knee replacement surgery.

While any invasive procedure can be scary, knee replacement surgery is one of the most common joint replacement surgeries with an excellent recovery rate. 

It's critical to follow certain guidelines to make the recovery process smooth. While stretching and specific exercises will help, some exercises and activities could harm and slow down the process.

Hip replacement surgery effectively reduces pain, improves mobility and patient's life by allowing them to move freely and resume their usual activities. 

The hip replacements last 15-20 years and are a long-term solution for people who have experienced injury or have severe arthritis. 

The doctors usually take some time to prescribe a hip replacement surgery, especially when there's a chance that non-invasive therapies might help. Nonetheless, if the surgery is deemed necessary, it's a great way to treat pain and other hip issues. 

It's important to remember, though, that to ensure that the surgery has maximum benefits, to avoid potential injury or issues during recovery, each patient needs to take certain precautions. 

And just as there are some things you should do after the procedure, there are things you shouldn't.

Here's what not to do after hip replacement surgery.

Joint replacement surgery is a treatment for people with chronic joint pain and mobility issues, and it's usually the last option after non-invasive therapies haven't been successful. 

Healthy joints have "articular cartilage" coated with synovial fluid that enables movement. Still, with time, trauma, and various illnesses, the fluid gets reduced, and joint movement becomes painful and stiff.

While any surgery can be intimidating to many people, it can improve a person's life immensely, reduce pain and allow them to go back to living their normal lives.

Depending on each patient's issues, there are various joint replacement surgeries, from knee to hip replacement to shoulder replacement. 

Let's look at all the types of joint replacement surgeries and how they can help.

Hip Impingement

Our hip joints bear most of the bodyweight and allow us to move, run, walk and jump. It generally is a very flexible joint, but it loses the ability to perform these functions because of trauma or repetitive movements. 

This condition is called femoral acetabular impingement (FAI) or hip impingement, causing stiffness, pain, and early hip osteoarthritis.

The pain and stiffness worsen with bending the hip or waist during seemingly simple activities like riding a bike, bending to tie the shoes, or sitting for a long time.

One of the best ways to manage this condition is doing hip impingement exercises. In this article, we'll review the recommended exercises as well as hip impingement exercises to avoid.
