Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
hello and thank you for sending the question.

Knee replacement generally requires comprehensive rehabilitation. If you complete a full course of rehabilitation then it is likely possible that you can start brisk walking and jogging as well.

regarding squats, this is also a possibility but would recommend that you start with very light weights to begin with.

As with any exercise regimen following a joint replacement we recommend that you discuss this with your orthopedic specialist before beginning any type of exercise regimen.

Thank you again for sending your question.
