I know what you mean with the feet going numb... feet, legs, arm... *sigh* Didn't think about a recumbent bike..will have to look into that. Thank you for the suggestion. : )

Remember...no matter how hard it seems today... everything happens for a reason and in the end..it is all worth it.

I am a nurse and also have the same problems. I try things until my feet go numb then I stop. Recumbant exercise bikes seem like a safe bet most of the time and what my PT had suggested. You're stitting so back is stabelilzed and I wont fall when my feet go numb. Good luck!

I'm in the same boat with the bad back. Any suggestions on exercises that are "bad back safe" would be great!

I too have a bad back,had two back surgeries and i too am worried i will hurt myself,I know swimming an walking are good,but i don't have anywhere to go swim each day and walking just doesn't seem to be enough. So if you find any other great exercises people like us can do please let me know as well. Good luck on your weight lose journey.

I also have a bad back and had back surgery about two years ago. I think the biggest thing with exercise is to only do a little and then do a little more every day.

Hello friends...

I have a bad back. Working as a nurse has required many years of heavy lifting and use of improper body mechanics while doing it! I'm 33 years old, but I feel like I have a 70 year old back. I have a herniated disk that I have been able to stabilize using physical therapy and chiropractic adjustments. I also have alot of muscle stiffness and arthritis in my lower back from the repetative injuries to the same area. I want to exercise, but I am so afraid that my back will go out and I won't be able to move again. Other than walking or swimming are there any other low impact exercises I can do?
