In brief: Non weightbearing

Non weight bearing activity such as light cycling, swimming and weight lifting (while sitting and lying down).
Discuss with your doctor. Will probably be able to gradually increase stress as symptoms resolve. Non weight stretching to keep joints mobile and tendons flexible are helpful. May need to see pt. Dr l.
