The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A 41-year-old male asked:
Absolutely.: With strength and resistance training (like with atlas stones), you'll also have cardiovascular benefits as well - especially if you decrease the weight a little and increase the number of reps.
A 25-year-old female asked:
Some thoughts..: What you're describing can be caused by dozens of things: blood pressure, blood sugar, thyroid, hormone changes with pregnancy. I've had patients really concerned about low blood sugar with symptoms of lightheadedness. I tell them if they have a glass of orange juice and the symptoms go away, it could be the sugar. Some people will even check their sugars with a glucometer. Best of luck!
A 39-year-old female asked:
Activity ; OA: It's very possible for people with osteoarthritis to enjoy physical activities like walking and swimming. Depending on the joint involved, physical therapy may be helpful as well as non steroidal antiinflammatories like Ibuprofen and naproxen. Swimming is a great physical activity that puts low stress on most joints, so it's a great option for people with oa.
