Hi Bev,

Has your doctor said if there is anything to be done about the torn miniscus? I know from experience how painful it can be to walk or do any exercise while the miniscus is torn.

What worked for me while waiting for surgery was water aerobics as there is no impact on the joints.

Good luck!!

Live long and prosper

Walking is great for arthritis. Also, if you can get to a pool it would do you a great deal of good also. Being in a pool is taking more weight off of your joints and yet getting the exercise as well. Also, drinking 4 oz of TART cherry juice has helped my husband with his OA and RA tremendously.

Hi, I am new to this site and having a difficult time to navigate to where I want to be. I am 71 and suffer from OA and try to keep busy through the pain. Getting up in the morning is my biggest challenge of the day or after sitting for a time. What I have figured out that works for me is I carry around a timer and set it for 30 min and when it goes off, I force myself to get up and walk around the house. I have tried all OC med and nothing seems to work, other than my trying to lose weight to get the pressure off the knees. Bev

I suffer from degenerative disk disease, torn miniscius in both knees, and oa of a 60 year old. I know I need to lose weight by dieting and excercising, but what I don't know is how to find an excercise plan that takes the conditions into account. I have been trying to be on my feet more and I am going to try walking everyday. I would love some feed back from anyone who suffers through this constant pain and is doing good.
