Great discussion! I love the name Painiac Shuffle, Move and More.
Petmom. I find that walking really intensifies the pain for me. So I choose Water walking as an alternative and I can do 1 hour of water walking and still feel like I can function the rest of the day. Of course year round access to a pool is necessary. My Medicare Advantage plan pays most of the cost..I do a copay of $13/month for access to the Athletic club pool and facility. I find it enjoyable and relaxing (the Hot tub helps afterwards as well) I also meet people there regularly, so it helps with socialization needs. Did you know that 30 minutes of water walking is equal to an hour of walking on land? the resistance of the water plus the low impact on joints makes it ideal for people with pain.
