I had total hip replacement surgery in 2010, my surgeon using the posterior method. My implant is Biomet titanium. I want to prolong the life of my implant as long as possible. Recently, I’ve been taking cycle or spin classes at the gym and weight lifting classes. I lift no heavier than 15 lbs. Would either of these exercises cause excessive wear on my implant?
“Those are great exercises for you to be doing. Any low impact exercises – walking, biking, swimming, light weight lifting – are going to maintain good joint motion, maintain good muscle strength, and burn calories, all of which are good for the longevity of you and your hip.”
