Tip: you can begin walking with a friend to avoid boredom and have a companion in case you need assistance, or you can enroll in your local walking club!
2. Cycle Away the Inactivity
In case your injury does not prevent you from it, you can cycle slowly on a smooth paved surface.
It is especially beneficial for your neck and back. It is less jarring than other types of aerobic exercises like jogging.
Advantages of riding a bike include:
- Bike riding improves your body’s overall endurance and lower body muscle strength.
- It is not a weight-bearing activity, so it does not put any stress on your knees, hips, or spine.
- It is a perfect conditioning and cardiovascular exercise.
