I was just diagnosed with osteoarthritis by my doctor. I do not know any details, the next available appointment with a specialist is not until the end of July. All I know is that it is some kind of facet arthritis, and I know that I am in a lot of pain and have been for several years.
I am quite active, and not overweight, although my body has changed a lot since having a baby 18 months ago. I would love some ideas for the best exercises to get rid of the stiffness. Swimming? Yoga? Are these good or bad? Usually activity makes my back feel better, and I run 20+ miles weekly.
I am a bit freaked out by the diagnosis, even more so since I will have to wait over 6 weeks to find out more. I'd like to get started on something for myself. If anyone has a similar condition, please let me know what has or has not worked for you.
