Can spinal stenos which is the cause of my sciatic pain. Get better with stretches, pilates, and water aerobics?
No running!: Body as a whole, or knee. I favor cycling outdoors, because your body weight is off the knee and you are not dropping weight in stride which can bring nearly 1000 lbs of force on the knee joint.
