Osteoarthritis workout

Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis workout


Avatar f tn Hello and welcome to MedHelp's forums. Hopefully you have been to the doctor by now. What was there take on the swelling? Does it often ache as well? It is not uncommon, unfortunately, for swelling to occur after a fracture of the extremity like this to flare up long after. But please do have this checked and discuss with your doctor. However, please note that osteoarthritis in and of itself can cause swelling. https://www.webmd.
Avatar n tn I am 42 years old and very active. I run and workout 5 times a week. I tore my acl snowskiing. I am scheduled for a cadavar graft in a few weeks. I have spoken to many people who have had this problem. I get many diffierent responses to my questions even my doctor. What happens to my knee years down the road if I do not have the reconstruction?, I am at around 90% now. I have a few issues, but I think I can live with them.
Avatar f tn Cardio is especially rough on my body due to the asthma as well as osteoarthritis. Just spend a little extra time doing cardio at a slower pace and slowly you will increase your stamina. It's a long and hard process and having a buddy to workout with will make it much easier. Just make sure you Have any a good support system in place and you'll be losing in no time. Also another thing that has helped me greatly is drinking at least 8oz. Water about 20 minutes prior to eating so I will eat less.
Avatar n tn Do you have access to a gym? Or is this for at home exercises without any equipment?
Avatar n tn Now a bad knee is another issue entirely. In my wife's case, osteoarthritis has damged one of her knees badly. She has scheduled a total knee replacement in the fall just so she can keep up with me and the grandkids (she has already had arthroscopic surgery). If you can walk without a limp, long slow walks will burn calories almost as well as jogging over the same istance (just takes longer) and so helps weight control. There's also swimming and bicycling.
Avatar f tn muscle deterioration; chest pressure/tightness/pain; osteoarthritis. Vit D deficiency (16) diagnosed in 2008 (now repleted) and low calcium. WPW Ablation 08 (poster septal pathway); 2009-10 edema in legs, ankles, feet and now abdomen and face, very sharp pain in calves, but not every day. 2010 Headaches (not like migraine), neck pain, jaw pain intermittent. Hearing loss past year.
Avatar m tn I chose resurfacing as opposed to total implant due to my stats, mainly my young age---in osteoarthritis years (g)..I'm 51 (male, solid bones, no metal allergies, etc). This procedure preserves more of the bone, something to consider in the event I outlive the life of the implants and require further replacement down the road..Thought I would pass along an excellent patient site on hip implants I stumbled on.

Avatar f tn I'm a 27 years old student with a history of recurrent patella dislocations in both knees. I was just recently diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my right knee. My left knee seems fairly ok because i haven't had any dislocation on it for a while. I've had several subluxation in my other knee, about 5 last year year, which had a doctor worried about my right knee after i got an MRI done. Last year, he told me that i should get surgery because i could get arthritis.
Avatar m tn Drinking wine can ward off early symptoms of knee osteoarthritis, according to recent research from the UK. Drinkers who sipped 4 to 6 glasses of vino a week were 45 percent less likely to develop knee osteoarthritis than those who abstained from alcohol. But it's not alcohol that contains the antidote for better health; it's the specific ingredients found in wine that keep your creaks from becoming more serious. (Beer drinkers actually increased their risk of arthritis!
Avatar n tn My main problem is a throbbing-like pain in the legs, like one gets from a hard workout, but I did not consider one flight of stairs a hard work out. I underwent a circulatory study of my legs a couple of days ago, including some echo-whatever studies of my leg veins.... I will hear from my doctor in the coming weeks on a follow-up visit.
Avatar m tn I exercise consistently 4-7 days per week and employ a wide variety of conditioning methods, ranging from high intensity sprints to long, slow distance running and various resistance training protocols.
Avatar m tn the level of soreness/stiffness is unlike anything I’ve come across even on my most strenuous workout days. & I remain sore/stiff throughout the day, whereas before, it would work itself out after a good morning stretch. I was never an ibuprofen taker & now I find myself taking them before I even attempt to get out of bed. Everyone I talk to just says, “that’s what happens when you get older”, but I have a hard time wrapping my head around that.
Avatar f tn The SAM-e, vitamin B complex and the kava kava got me thru the worst of the withdrawal and the SAM-e has continued to help w/ my osteoarthritis and migraines. It's my new miracle herbal supplement...............my mindset is completely different then before........still have a little ways to go before my mind is completely healed and my energy has fully returned but that will come w/ time I know.........

Avatar n tn I also saw a rheumatologist who just commented after doing some blood work and examining the other test results that the only thing really abnormal was the severe osteoarthritis in the hip. Now the pain is back again. The pain moves around on the leg. Often it is in the shin and the inside of the thigh and back/hip area. My muscles feel weak. I can not sleep at night. The pain is so bad. Sitting hurts. Exercising hurts. What kind of doctor can I go to who could solve this?
Avatar f tn I have Osteoarthritis in both knees and had surgery awhile ago. What can I do for exercise other than walking, which I do every day at work etc. Please help if you can, thank you.
Avatar n tn Unfortunately, osteoarthritis, like any other type of arthritis has flare ups and then you feel a little better for a while and it can flare up again. Ask your doctor to refer you to physiotherapy who can give you specific exercises to do so that you do not become too stiff. Although rest is important, you still need to be active, but not to the point that you get exhausted. Unless you have been told otherwise, a healthy balanced diet with fish, fruit and veg would be fine.
Avatar f tn I do have osteoarthritis. My dr doesn't think anything is wrong with me and won't run test or refer me to specialist. He insisted it was from steroid shot he gve me for my back pain. I gained 5 lbs over night and more since then. was told by er dr that it sounds like it could be auto immune disorder. Im desperate and frustrated. I want to add that last time this happened I was not taking ANY meds.
Avatar m tn Every day feels like I just did an intense workout the day before. I've been tested for rheuma, but that was negative. Most of my pain is around the neck. I stretch it out about every ten minutes. Any type of stress will instantly tighten it making it feel like someone is trying to choke me. Rarely I'll have a little trouble breathing from the muscles in the front of my neck and chest muscles tightening, especially after sneezing. But that's partial to blame from my asthma.
Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis. What kind of exercise can I do? I need to lose about 25 lbs. and I was walking but now I'm not sure if that is good for me.

Avatar f tn I have osteoarthritis in my knee - I had to have major surgery in it 20 years ago to reattach torn knee ligaments and now I have arthritis, with bone spurs and my knee is slightly bent inwards. I've been doing aerobic workouts on the Concept 2 rowing machine. Is this bad for my knee? I don't bend my knee much past 90 degrees when I row, because it's stiff. Also I don't row with the damper set high. I use it with the damper at 2.5 or 3.
Avatar n tn I tried taking them for a 3 day period and it seemed to help a lot. If I workout -- it doesn't cause it to flare up at all -- no pain really. It seems to get a little better when I stretch really well. I am bad about not stretching and am generally not very flexible... I don't think it is bursitis because exercise would tend to make that flare up and worsen I would think. I can go up and down steps no problem. It's just the first few steps after I get up that is a problem.
Avatar m tn Water aroebics works wonders. I've recently been diagnosed with osteoarthritis of knee. Except I'm 42 for crying out loud! I highly suspect it's related to my taking Prevacid for 5 years (the reason I'm here). Anywho, the water aroebics and palates are very easy on your knees. Look up the pilates website and order the ring and video tapes. I joined 24 hour fitness for the water aroebics. It's worked wonders for me and I'm not a small woman myself.
Avatar m tn I am 25 years old, male and a weightlifter/gym enthusiast. Recently, I performed a routine Dead-Lift workout (on a Wednesday) nearly 2 weeks ago. 1.5 days later I had horrible lower back pain where I could not lean forward far and/or lean back. I thought It was a muscle strain and continued to relax and eat properly and take it easy from the gym. The pain subsided only a bit moving from both sides on lower back to left lower back and then to right lower back.
Avatar f tn There is still so much I want to achieve, but I'm in pain and so tired all the time. Please tell me there is more to look into to rid me of this conditions. I do workout/exercise/yoga One of the symptoms i hate is how sleepy i always am. it is early this sunday morning my hands hurt pretty bad so overlook the typos.
Avatar n tn I am 31 now and was born with congenital kyphosis, at 20 I underwent posterior fusion T11=L2, and harrington rods T11-L1, Three years later I started to have back pain again and in the last 2 yrs the pain is unbearable, I have tried, water phy therapy, chiropractor, tens, gabapentin, flexeril, tyl codine, injection sacroliliac joint, and cervical injection, nothing has helped, sitting, driving, walking for more than 20 min and Im in so much pain I could cry, Ive had a ct herniated disc L5 S1, os
Avatar n tn So the orthopedist referred him to a pain management doctor. That doctor thought he may have osteoarthritis and prescribed Meloxicam. He has taken two month's worth and feels a little better, says at least he doesn't feel like he's dying when he tries to get out of bed in the morning. But still has back pain. He is now out of medication and isn't sure if he should get a refill, if it's truly making a difference. Another issue is that he sweats a lot. And it has been getting worse recently.
Avatar f tn I'm not all gloom and doom like I was before. I have a better outlook and it's also helping a lot w/ my osteoarthritis in my neck. I haven't felt that "need" to take any since I started on the SAM-e. I highly recommend! lol Each day is just a teeny bit better then the day before, ya know? Small steps I know........I'm hoping to get BACK to working out like I used to.
Avatar f tn If I walk too much or work out, it takes the rest of the day to recover, much more than just being a little sore from a workout. Thanks in advance! I know this isn't a forum for diagnosis, just curious how symptoms play out for people with how much variety. Also, what do doctors do for pain? I've tried everything from OTC to prescription NSAIDs to narcotics. Narcotics work the best but don't take the pain away entirely.
