(HealthDayNews) -- You're better off doing the backstroke instead of taking a slapshot if you've had a hip or knee replaced.

A group of doctors at the Mayo Clinic was surveyed on what sports they would and would not recommend for people after hip or knee replacement surgery.

The recommended list: swimming, scuba diving, cycling, golfing and bowling.

Not recommended: running, waterskiing, football, baseball, basketball, hockey, karate and soccer.
