Exercise Questions | I want to exercise!!!


I recently moved to Ottawa and promptly got hit by a car while biking home from work. Since then I have had physio but am still in pain and can't seem to do much. How do I stay in shape and exercise without using the injured parts of me? Please tell me what I can do.

Unusable/injured parts: left forearm/wrist/hand, lower back, right foot/ankle.

Any advice/help is much appreciated - thank you!

Whatever you do, don't re injure your lower back!

You're a land mine right now. I wouldn't do much until that lower back gets better. DEFINITELY go stick with the physio as when you say 'lower back' that's pretty much every exercise... You may want to try the pool, but I would ask permission first from your doc/physio.
