For the first couple of weeks after a total knee replacement surgery, one of the main goals is decreasing the swelling and reaching a full passive range of motion.
Being able to cycle after total knee replacement depends on getting your entire body back in motion as quickly as possible after the surgery.
The first step towards riding your bicycle is using a stationary bike during your physical therapy, as it is a great way to help maintain muscle tone and keep your knee flexible.
After about four to six weeks of stationary bike riding, you may be cleared to start riding your bike outside. Be sure to check with your doctor before doing so you need to make sure it is safe for you to do after your surgery.
