A 70 years old lady with a one year history of compressed L1 vertebral fracture and osteoporosis with resulting kyphosis. she is on long term low dose steroids due to partially controlled rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthitis of the Rt hip and both knees are added problems. What are the best exercises to do without additional harm?
assuming that a physician has consented to exercises and that a physical therapist has been consulted, I would suggest aquatic exercises. With her medical history, she is probably very de-conditioned. I would start just water walking.
