Today I am adding a link to exercise, proven to reduce pain. I have a few items to mention in regard to my exercise. Warm water pools are much better for our muscles, which do not like the cold. If you can join a Y or find a “warm” pool near you, exercise there. Start by walking and creating your stretches. Graduate to senior citizen aerobic/stretching classes. Yoga. I could not do this, even with modified positions. The load on my weight bearing muscles was too much; this was during my years in college and university when my body pain was at a low threshold.
Post more tomorrow
