Long term impact of total hip and knee replacement on physical activity and sedentary behaviour in middle-aged women
Joint replacement is known to improve pain and function for individuals with arthritis and joint fractures. While there has been extensive research on patients' function and mobility following hip and knee joint replacement, it is important to also investigate whether improvements in function actually translate to increased activity. With physical inactivity being a risk factor for chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease,1 understanding the impact of joint replacement on activity levels is vital for understanding the associated long-term health implications.
