Exercise

Exercise

Besides PH, I have terrible back pain any time I'm on my feet. I also suffer from hip bursitis and have a torn meniscus, thus have hip and knee pain although not as severe as the lower back. At 87, and with other physical problems, what kind of exercise would be safe?

What kind of footwear do you have? That's important when standing for long periods of time. You can try some gently pelvic tilts, bridging exercises, clam shells, marching in place, and light walking on grass or turf.

Maybe chair yoga would be the easiest low impact for you there is also a daily regimen that you can do in your bed. Just Google it. But first talk to your Dr because he is your best friend for these types of things
