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.
Years ago I did Bikram Yogaim sure I liked like an idiot but it made me feel like a million bucks. Downside it’s nit convenient and a 90 minute class
i was diagnosed 5 months ago and my pain is poorly controlled so i can not do any exercises
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.
Well, I have severe back pain and I can say that only swimming helps me forget about it for a while. I recently met an athlete who recommended special training for the back muscles developing. Actually, I think this is a good idea and can help me get rid of the pain I constantly feel. In addition, I read that there are drugs that improve muscle growth and strengthen them. Then I found this article https://steroidcycle.org/testosterone-cycle/ and I was interested in this opportunity to strengthen the muscles and get rid of the pain. In addition, steroids are also used for medical purposes. I can get beautiful muscles and a life without pain. If someone knows a specialist in this field, please share their contacts.
