Dance, MSMASLIN, Dance! LOL

I can't walk very far at all, the continuous rhythmic motion using the same muscles that way sets up muscle spasms in my ribs... let's just say I like to breathe! LOL

Dancing uses muscle groups in varying directions and in all kinds of different combinations, so it's actually a lot easier for me to do than walking...

...and if you have access, warm water pool exercise, whether swimming or water aerobics, is easier on your joints--and therapeutic!

good luck!

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!

Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

Life comes in specific increments, which we receive as a gift of one moment at a time. That's why it's called

Thanks for the warm wishes. I am going to a new doctor on the on the tenth so he will put me through another round of therapy. I've been twice. I show improvement but they cut me after 6 six weeks whether I showed or not. It must be a Medicare thing.

How many times have y'all done PT?

Welcome back! I'm sorry for the arthritis and disk problems you face. Please be cautious when starting an exercise program. Have you considered seeing a physical therapist to get a routine set up for you that shouldn't add to your pain?

Best of luck getting back into the swing of things! emoticon

I came to this board in August, I did something stupid, survived it and now I am trying to get back on track. This boards existence brings both joy and sadness. I am so glad y'all are here, but so sad that there are over 53,000 members. I know that everyone doesn't post but to all of you, if I could take it away I would.

I have osteoarthritis and fibro. I am 41 years old, much too young for the arthritis but its there. I have two herniated disks in my neck and thoracic spine. If I had hit the one below it, I wouldn't be walking. So, for that I am grateful but very careful so as not to get that one. I am trying to think of some kind of sporty exercise I can do without hurting myself. I used to play tennis for hours, then walk a couple miles for fun. Now, I am not so good at walking. Does anybody know of some kind of low impact sport I can do? I know walking eventually helps but the cold is really rough on me.

I will be here everyday. I feel like this forum and all you loving people may be part of the cure.

Thanks for being here.
