If you go on line and look up "Sit and Be Fit" you will find a whole list of CD's which cover just about any problem you might have. I have some of the CD's, and they are very good.

You might also check with your insurance carrier to see if they would pay for some physical therapy. That might help get you started. I am in need of a double knee surgery. I did 8 weeks of PT and we worked primarily on my ability to stand and balance. I didn't think at first it was of much benefit, but I stuck with it and it truly helped me.

My first suggestion would be to go to www.sparkpeople.com/resource/health_
co
nditions.asp?condition=11

this is the osteoarthritis center on sparkpeople. There is an article about managing symptoms with exercise.
www.sparkpeople.com/resource/fitness
_a
rticles.asp?id=363

This is an exercise article regarding 11 exercises that help knee pain. I use an exercise show on TV called "Sit and be Fit" and I would also suggest using the web search on top of the page. It will give you a ample list of suggestions sparkpeople and others.
My orthopedic physician says that I have the body of a 79 year old in a 59 year old. He says that I need replacement surgery for my right knee and my right shoulder.
I am taking a pole walking class. It takes the pressure off your knees and strengthens your biceps. I have a water class that strengthens your muscles and an hour long low impact arthritis class.
Are you new to the team? If so, welcome! emoticon

My life tomorrow will be the result of my attitudes and the choices I make today.

I cannot find any good exercise DVDs for low impact exercise. I need chair exercise that works. I need knee replacements, but cannot afford them yet. But I need to loose weight in order to have the surgery. Walking and bicycling hurt way to much to endure the pain for more the 5 minutes. Water exercise is out because i cannot go up and down the steps of the pool. Any advice? emoticon
