you should always be checked out by a doctor before you do anything that might end up really hurting you.

I agree that you should see a doctor ASAP so you don't make your current injuries worse or create new injuries. I wouldn't recommend any exercise until you do that -- your safety is most important and not seeing a doctor and being advised can really compromise your safety.

Justwayne, you sound like you are seriously injured after a serious accident that caused broken bones. Any further exercise may cause further harm to your body. I hope you do see a doctor ASAP.

The local lawyera denied me cause ai waiver so never sign and threaten to sue. They did say I could try going thru my own insurance some how but my I've been staking it out. I might try a university hospital or whichever is a walk in. Today I got slightly stuck BENT after using a push mower for 5-10minutes. I had to sit down and give it a break. My back does feel creased still

Healing time does vary. You really should see a doctor as you have or have had broken bones. Any fitness advice given here could cause further harm.

If insurance is an issue, check with your state to see if you are eligible for medical assistance. It concerns me even more that you appear to be using alcohol as a medication. This isn't good; I am sure you know that. If her insurance company only offered $750, you may want to lawyer up. The state limits for injury in an auto accident may be higher.

You are correct that watching your food intake is the most important thing in healthy living.

Healing time varies greatly with individuals and even at times in your life.

I do notice it probably did cause spine ribcage Injuries forcing me to squat down more often vs bending over. I'd post accident pic but site won't allow. Does anyone know the time it takes bones to heal say a snapped arm. 5 months ago it was slightly sagging now seems to have started healing slightly curved

I was planning on watching tv while exorcising. No I didn't see a doctor I unfortunately was rejected or only offered 750$ ai from her insurance after they couldn't recommend hospital as I told her my ribs were pushed forward whiplash. and months later other spine Injuries occured. I've gained 20lbs bedrest 8 months so trying to lose weight so injuries would look more apparent. If I lose weight the Injuries or front ribcage area looks funky sideways and ribs twist throttled. I'd post pics of Injuries or car so you can get an idea. I may just try eating less. I drink alot of alcohol some days since no pain medicine was given

I didn't know there was such a thing as a manual treadmill, so I googled.

Really reasonably priced and looks to fold flat.

If that keeps you making more effort, I'd say go for it.

There's a bunch of them available on Amazon with enough reviews to help you choose.

I agree with Luann on this. Honestly, getting outside is so much nicer, in my opinion. Whether you are at the gym or outside, no one is watching you. If anything, people would admire you for getting out and getting going. I have gotten to know my neighbors a bit because of it.

The more important tidbit of information is the fact that you are recovering from what sounds like a rather serious accident. Have you been cleared by your doctor to exercise? Have you been working through your injuries with a physical therapist?

"There's no sidewalks"
There are no sidewalks where I am, and I walk anyway.

"I hate putting effort in front of people."
No one is going to make you the center of their attention.
Go walk!

" Some of the reason for wanting a treadmill hop on 15-20 mins or just jog 5mins or so"
You can do that without a treadmill.

" I was injured in car accident so it be hard to turn around mile into it. "
I get that... I also was in a major multi-vehicle accident. NO WAY would I start with a mile+ walk after my injuries!
Start smaller, allowing for return time. Build gradually as your injuries allow.

Is there any way you can plan walks from your residence? That's the nice thing about walking and running is you can really do it from anywhere; it doesn't necessarily require a commute anywhere. I moved into my current residence about 2 1/2 years ago and walking around my neighborhood is how I familiarized myself with it and got to know my neighbors a bit.

It's mainly so I don't have to drive to a park when I want to walk. How do the electrics hold up I seen manuals 100$ . Durability anyone have a cheaper electric tread mill break. I was in a rear end collision 8 months ago so will be walking or light jogging. Did suffer spine ribcage injuries whiplash and a snapped arm she don't really need the full speed

Has anyone used a manual treadmill. I need a stationed walker. Usually walk in the park but that takes commute.
