My 8.5wk ultrasound found a 6x4.5x 4.2cm ovarian cyst. Please explicitly list safe exercises. Stair walking? Slow elliptical w/ high resistance?

What did your OB doc: Say , your OB doc should have explain that in detail to you already so call him or her today ! so they can instruct you, if you were my pt i would say no exercise other than slow walking and no intercourse until you get a followup us in 2-3 weeks tomake sure the cyst is resolving, if it would rupture hopefully not, you could lose the pregnancy, you will have plenty of time later to exercise. ...Read more

For 'runners knee' which running shoe would u recommend - Asics Gel Enhance Ultra 3 Running Shoe or Brooks Womens Adrenaline GTS 15 Running Shoe?

Not just Shoes...: Either shoe will do, but shoes are not the end all treatment for runners knee. There are many more things to consider before fixating on the shoe type. More important is whether you had, presently have or are in a preventive mode for the treatment of the problem. I suggest you seek out a sports medicine ortho specialist to do a proper evaluation and subsequent treatment and exercise protocol. ...Read more

Any doctors out there who have tried sleep/activity/etc. Tracking devices and services (e.G., jawbone's up, fitbit, nike+ fuelband)? Thoughts?

I use fitbit: I've been using fitbit daily for over 2 years. During the day it shows my activity patterns, and allows me to use that feedback to modify the behavior. For example if I have not met my step goal by dinner time a postrprandial walk becomes more attractive. At night, the fitbit can provide useful information regarding quality of sleep. The web software allows for tracking of calorie intake andweight. ...Read more

How effective is the malibu Pilates chair at toning?

Great: I recommend the pilate chair to my patients more for when they need additional stretching of tight joints. It works great.
