I work through some of the pain, but not if it gets too intense. Walking is great, if even 5 minutes at a time. It was my starting point, along with stretching.

I have rheumatoid arthritis that affects my lower back, ankles, feet, and shoulders especially. What has helped me the most is; first talking to my doctor and second working with medication to make physical activity possible.

Now, because we have found a good mixture of medication, I can run on the tredmill for a minimum of a half an hour a day. In addition to that, I use the nutrition planner to plan my meals each day.

I have felt so much better since I have talked with my rheumatologist about my inflammation and came up with a plan with him. He was able to give me a realistic approach to fitness and weight loss while supporting my goals as well.

I hope you find a way to work with/through this pain. I understand how hard it is!

Best wishes,
SDB

I have had serious back pains in the past but I've started walking in water and doing water aerobics and it has stopped all the pain I've had for years. I recommend you try doing some water aerobics. It takes the pressure off your joints and allows you to burn off calories without hurting your back even more.

Thank you all for the great advice. I know I am motivated to stick with it. Some days are so much better than others, and they are the days that i feel the best.

Don't let injury, chronic pain or mobility issues stop you from exercising. Use these resources to work out safely within your limitations.

I had back surgery last year and what helps me to work out is an exercise bike. If you get a recumbent bike it will help with the back pain and it also takes the impact off your joints. Yoga and pilates helps too, but if you are in really bad pain now from my experience jumping into twisting and bending can make you hurt really bad later on.

not sure how to advise you... have you seen a doctor? I was ignoring my hip pain for far too long and finally saw a dr. I'm not doing any high intensity exercise for a while, which is hard for me. Have you tried Yoga? Also, you'll get results from watching your nutrition even if you can't exercise.

I have been doing as much as i can for exercise, and I realize the importants on my joints of getting the extra weight off, to make me healthier. There is lots of days that I am in too much pain, and just can't get motivated. The accountability is so important, so I don't allow it to become an excuse.
Is there another way I can tackle exercise and keep active??
