I did not find physical therapy or exercises helped at all. I tried swimming,water suspension and nothing helps. The only relief I get is from lying flat in bed and injections. What are others doing for relief? S.

I have too much pain and definitely not enough energy to excerise. Ive tried the gym, low impact cardio. But 20 min and I barely have enough energy to drive home

As the disease progresses, exercise and physical therapy becomes very hard. I do my best to try and maintain good posture during the day (as best as I physically can) and that in itself is some exercise. I try to contract my abs and back muscle in doing so.
