Question for the group: I went to an orthopedic surgeon yesterday and was diagnosed with Morton’s neuroma and arthritis in my neck. The neuroma is a result of repetitive motion with heavy loads (which I was pretty sure was the cause) and the arthritis is hereditary. The arthritis is what is causing a pinched nerve in my upper right shoulder. My question is, for both, what are cardio activities and lifting strategies that won’t aggravate these conditions? I don’t go to PT (at a sports medicine facility) until the 21st. So far, bicep easy-bar curls, skull-crushers, leg extensions, and seated hamstring curls seem to be okay for weights and the step-mill okay for cardio. That is limited, however. Does anyone have any other suggestions? Much appreciated if you could share.
“Don’t listen to your Doctor” and “arthritis is cureable” are not recommendations and statements I would follow. Arthritis pain can be managed, and you can become symptom free, but the wearing and damage done to the joints cannot be reversed. You must make sure you are not performing activities that will continue to worsen the process
Arthritis is curable. Don’t listen to your MD. I had arthritis in my neck and hands & carpal tunnel syndrome. It took about 8 months to get rig of it(quicker if I didn’t beat on my joints so much) by just following Dr/Naturalpath Joel Wallach and Dr Peter Glidden. MD only “mask” the symptoms. They can’t fix your body. Get on YouTube , type in the names I gave you along with “arthritis” and learn. It’ll open your eyes.
