Exercise is one of the keys to PMR. I hated doing it but once you get into a routine and find one that is not too difficult or that causes more pain it’s not too bad. I bought a recumbent bike, elliptical combination and use it for 30 minutes when I first get up 5 to 6 days a week and then a few times a week I use it in the evenings for 30 minutes while watching the news. It’s easy for those that have trouble or don’t like walking because it has a larger seat and pedals so doesn’t cause joint pain. I also started using a therapy band to see if I can regain some strength in my hands, arms and shoulders.
