That is an excellent question.
There are several options. You may want to make an appointment with a specialist called a "physical medicine and rehabilitation" doctor (pm&r), and they could devise an exercise program for you. Another possibility would be to call the physical therapy department at your local hospital and ask a therapist for a recommendation. The physical therapists at hospitals are often used to seeing patients with a wide variety of diagnosis so they may have a good recommendation for you.
