In January of 2015, I made an appointment with my Orthopedist to have my knee checked, due to LOTS of pain when walking. The good news was it was Osteoarthritis, a bone spur on the side of the knee and could be repaired with therapy. We set up therapy and I went to the first one, She put me through my paces, and put me on a NuStep recumbent cross trainer.
Due to high cost of therapy, I elected to do at home exercises and have since then done the faithfully. At that time she said you need to check your YMCA and see if they have this bike, you really need it. NOPE! they did not have it.
Last week, the YMCA added TWO of these machines to the fitness room. Now when I go to the pool, I have added time on this machine. SEE ME BELOW
|See how great I look already! Acutally this is only my HEAD. I snipped this photo from the video that I watched to see how to use it properly.|
today on Thankful Thursday I am thankful the Y got these machines and that 6 years of exercises have kept me walking without pain. My incentive to do the exercise is if I skip a day or 2 the knee HURTS. Do the exercise no pain.
