Requesting Help For The VERY IMMOBILE
Monday, August 27, 2007
I am asking for assistance, suggestions that anyone might have for a person I know who is morbidly obese with extreme osteoarthritis. She is looking to start increasing her activity level but is so VERY limited in her range of motion that I am truly stumped as to what to recommend to her. The only cardio I can think of would be water-aerobics, however funds for access to a handicapped accessible swimming pool just aren't there. So it seems like strength-building would be the place to start. However I cannot think of anything to recommend.
Any suggestions out there? All ideas, recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
