Hi Elle

It would be difficult for us to give suggestions about what might be safe to do, without knowing the details of your condition and being able to evaluate you in person. I would ask your doctor if they would be able to give you a referral to see a physical therapist who can design a set of exercises specific to your needs. If not, finding a personal trainer in your area who's experienced with this type of thing might also be a good option.

Hope that helps,

Coach Jen

I was diagnosed with Congenital MD as a child. It's progressed over the years, and after having 3 children, I am much weaker than I was previously. I am about 20lbs overweight, so it's not much, but I'm having trouble coming up with ways to lower my weight without injuring myself. Anyone know of any low-maintenance exercises that I could do? Unfortunately, America isn't keen on helping people with congenital degenerative illnesses, nor are my doctors much in the way of help, so I must fend for myself. Any tips?
