Ask your treating MD: Not all casts are the same, and not all injuries for which casting is indicated are the same. You can usually exercise your uninjured limbs that are not casted safely once cleared by your treating physician. Check with your physician to make sure this is the case for your particular situation.

Ask your doc: You need to ask the doctor that put it on. He/she may actually not want you doing any excercises.
