How long until I am back to normal activities after knee arthroscopy?

While it depends on your overall health and the kind type of arthroscopy you have had, most people find they are able to return to work and light physical activities like walking, cycling, or swimming in one to two weeks. You will require weekly physiotherapy for as long as several months and further recovery before returning to higher-impact sports like running or heavy lifting.

Your surgeon and physiotherapist will give you a personalised timetable of how and when to return to your usual activities.
