What should I do to change my workout after surgery?

Whether the procedure is minor or major, foot surgery requires ample time for proper healing. Even when you can put weight on the foot and resume your activity, you should still be cautious to protect vulnerable bones and/or tissues during a workout.

When working out after surgery, avoid high impact activities and focus on stretching and strengthening exercises. Pilates and yoga provide gentle, easy movements that will keep your whole body fit while being safer for the foot or ankle that had surgery. Use an exercise bike with low resistance to maintain aerobic fitness. After incisions are healed, swimming is a great alternative workout. Progress slowly in any activity and monitor any pain or discomfort very closely.
