A physiologist is a great idea after an initial doctor's follow-up. If they are one of those that think they can handle every medical affliction in AND outside their expertise - INSIST on it. We have a few like that at one of our clinics here that I refuse to see.

That's got to be really rough having it in your knees. :( As stated below - chair exercises are really good. Spark has some I've tried out. I think there's a handful of them right on the website. :) Good luck and I hope it gets better.

I would be inclined to ease off that type of exercise and give your knee a bit of a rest. When you were diagnosed with Arthritis, did your Dr give you medication for it? If not, it might be a good idea to talk with him/her about it.

Also, is it possible that you may have injured your knee rather than the arthritis flaring? If it bothers you for more than a couple days, PLEASE get it checked by the Dr. Ask him/her what exercises would be best for you and what would be best left alone, too. Sometimes it can be helpful by asking for a referral to a Physiotherapist for their input. That is their area of expertise and will be able to not only tell you what exercises you are best doing, and best avoided, but also SHOW you how to do them properly - SAFELY!

In the meantime, you may still be able to exercise - think of chair exercises! You can get some real good heart-pumping ones even while sitting!


ALSO in the meantime, you might benefit from applying R.I.C.E. to your knee - Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation!


Good luck,
Kris

Tuesday I woke up with a pain in my knee and a stabbing pain in my foot when I tried to do my routine workout I couldn't stand the pain so I took it as a sign that my body needed a break because I have been doing some strenuous exercises. So yesterday I did a boxing workout and today when I tried to get back into my old routine I just couldn't take the pain I hate it because I was seeing real results with my routine now I have to figure out a new one that will give the same affect without further injuring my knee by the way I was recently diagnosed with arthritis in this knee does anyone have any suggestions.
