I just joined this team and saw that no one had replied so far.
For me it works to walk and ride a bike, but in an alert kind of way. I have two large older dogs
, so I can't go to fast and that suits me fine.
I had immense trouble with standing and walking, I even needed a wheelchair
at some point, but years ago I changed pain killer medication and this combination saved my life; from a couch potato (everything hurt and I was incredibly tired) I suddenly could do a lot more things. I have to be careful, but I can do a great deal more these days.
My main problems are my knees. So I can't do high impact aerobics, squats, jumping jacks and other exercises.
One other thing you may consider before taking up aerobic exercise is problems with proprioception.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proprioception
It makes me a bit of a clutz (bumping against doors, spilling your cup of hot tea) and I have to guard against putting my feet (for instance) in the same position for too long. I suspect this proprioception issue is why I have problems with complicated cardio exercises.
I once heard a occupational therapist mention that being in the water is not good for people with severe hip problems, because when you leave the water, the sudden weight might dislocate the hip joint.
I'm not a native speaker so pardon my english.
Have a nice day!
