So earlier this fall, my childhood of ballet, pointe, and being a lanky kid with weak ankles caught up with me when I was diagnosed with the early stages of arthritis in my left ankle. There are good days and bad days but my doctor says taking a daily glucosamine vitamin paired with exercise will keep it from getting worse.
So here’s where the crowdsourcing comes in. Obviously running (my preferred form of exercise) is out. I’m lucky if I can get up to a jogging pace right now and even that makes me nervous. I’m convinced I’ll collapse on the sidewalk if I run too fast. I can’t be the only one out there dealing with this right? Do you or someone you know (who isn’t elderly and likes to be fairly active) have arthritis? What do you do for exercise?
