Welcome to the team! I would do water exercises. That is what works best for me. The water keeps me from having all the stress on my knees and back and lets me move more easily.

Welcome Deanna. I have osteo as well as RA, and I find that swimming, walking, exercising (whichever you can do) in a heated pool is the only exercise I can do. The warm water soothes the pain, and the movement helps with weight loss at the same time. It is also the only kind of exercise you can do that doesn't put weight on your knees. If you have access to a pool, give it a try. I think you'll like it.

Welcome aboard!!! You're on a great team here. I've had 2 total knee replacements among others so I can really relate with what you're going through.

Have you tried pineapple juice or TART cherry juice? Pineapple juice is for inflamation. The Tart cherry juice really does help arthritis. My husband uses it faithfully for osteoarthritis and it really helped - 4-6 oz a day. He has since achieved the other sister to osteo which is rheumatoid. I have arthritis throughout my entire body.

Also, try a hot bath or a hot tub. They both have helped us a great deal with our arthritis. For some people, even cold will help arthritis pain. We have found the hot to be the best for us.

Do only what you can do without over doing it. Slow and easy is the thing.

Hope this is of some help to you. emoticon

Hi all,

I am Deanna. I am new to Spark People. I am very glad to find a team for this topic. I am 36 years old, and 2 years ago I was diagnosed with early-onset osteoarthritis, in both of my knees. Some days the pain and swelling are so bad I can barley stand...let alone exercise.

I am hoping to find exercises I can do that won't hurt my legs. I was told by my last doctor that if I lost 10 lbs it would really good. I weighed 160 lbs at the time, and this was told to me by a woman who weighed, like, 90lbs...if she was carrying a bowling ball! I felt slightly insulted. As I mentioned I hurt alot, and my husband will not workout with me. Any advice on gentle exercises would be great! Thanks!!

I can do it and so can you!!
