Hi Melzy,

Talking with your doctor is certainly a good starting point, so if you have not done so, that is where I would recommend you turn to first. I have also included a link to our new Limited Mobility Lifestyle Center which is a perfect resource to help you along.

I hope this helps!

1. doctors check up before starting any exercise routine
2. start very small and add more time as you feel better
3. get the weight off- lossing 176lbs worked for me- I was able to drop 1200 mgs of pain killers daily..

for each lb of overweight it gives 4 lbs of excess stress to each joint..

Go for eating healthy and use a table top hand bike called a ergometer.. The foot may be out of commission but we can also peddle with our hands..

Fitness is a battle, welcome to the frontline.
Suit up and fight for your life. War is war, no matter what front your fighting..

I have Arthritis in my foot and I find it hard most of the time to walk long distances or be on my feet for any amount of time. I want to get back into walking and eventually running . Do anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do to help so I wont be in so much pain or do I just have to suck it up and deal with it.
