I agree. When I get to the point of being able to utilize certain areas better I will continue my yoga practice. Some of the stretching will probably come first, and I try to walk a bit when I can. emoticon It is always helpful to get other opinions.

I certainly understand that! I am only at the beginning of this and the frustration is building.
Know you are moving forward although there may be times when it is necessary to allow more rest. My plan is to do as you say, and find the comfort zone and "try" to stop there and wait until I am strong enough to add a bit. emoticon

range of motion exercises are good, as long as you go slowly. I had to start at a basic level after my hip surgery. still are a whole lot of exercises i'm not allowed to do. i'm working on building strength. i get so tired just going down and up the stairs 3 times or to the grocery store once.

Hugs... I hope you feel better soon.

I think yoga and walking are two of the best activities for everyone.

When I had a low back injury, they had me start with light stretching and slowly walking a bit at a time. I know what it feels like to have to start at square one again. Just remember, the idea is that you have forward progress, and setbacks happen to everybody. Try hard to listen to your body; it will speak to you ...

Best of you, with many healing thoughts ... be gentle with yourself ...

I have emoticon Always good advice. The time table is pretty much what I can tolerate, and to set a gradual and gentle pace. I have the ice and pain relief down. I don't do well with medications so that is minimal. It is now learning how to move to prevent unnecessary soreness and strain. I doubt I will be doing much soon. emoticon

Have you asked your doctor what to do?

Recently fell literally flat on my face down some concrete steps. Could have been much worse.
However, I am left with a great deal of soft tissue injury, and must cut back drastically on my activities. Following the initial healing period it will take even more time to gradually get back to square one. I have ordered some range of motion exercises on DVD which should arrive tomorrow. I am hoping this will keep me active.
