Thank you BONOLICIOUS2 for your helpful suggestions. I go to PT twice a week and tonight is one of them and so I will ask him when I am there tonight. I have only seen him twice as the currently PT got another job closer to home. I have not talked to him about the gym but plan to do so as I am really feeling sluggish like I need to get out and some some exercising. I work hard all day with my family daycare children. But it's not the same as a full on work out!
Thanks again

I am currently in PT for neck/upper back problems, and was told the same thing about sticking to plain cardio and not doing anything with my arms/shoulders. I asked my PT about workouts, yours will be the best to lay out what is right for you, but mine gave me some great tips. Pilates style workouts, mods on other exercises, and the benefits of an exercise ball (now I sit on one at home to help my core!) Definitely talk to your PT, that is what they are there for! Good luck!

Your PT would be the best person to ask. Unfortunately, because of your injuries, we're not in a position to really advise you on exercises that would be safe to do.

Hi everyone,

I was in a car accident January 11, 2013 and I was very lucky as was my friend. Another car hit us passenger side of her car where I was sitting, they went through a stop sign. I am currently going through physical therapy for my soft tissue injury of my shoulders. I am told I can't do any exercises that involve my arms and shoulders except the exercises they give me which are at the moment stretching exercises. I can use the treadmill and the bike they said as long as I don't use any arms or shoulders.

I am not very creative in this area as I would usually go to classes at the gym or run on the treadmill which I am told not to do yet. I haven't been to the gym in a while and need to get back into it but the thought of just walking is dull to me. If I could change it up and have a plan to work with may be it would be fun or at least less dull? Any suggestions welcome and thank you!
