Exercise

You should be doing 150 to 300 minutes of exercise per week, including twice a week strength training.  

Local places to exercise


Some of the commercial places offer free 7 day passes. Your local high school is usually the least expensive option, but the hours can be restrictive.  


Walking: Indoor walking is available at area malls, some high school tracks, Hartland Senior Center, and of course, outside.  For more information on walking...NIH brochure on walking 
Swimming: Excellent for most patients who suffer with chronic pain. There are plenty of inexpensive, friendly pools in the area.  Your lack of confidence in your appearance in a swim suit is NOT a good reason not to swim.  In other words, "just do it"  Many of the local high schools also have a hot tub.  
Yoga:  Classes offered through community education. In addition, Dawn Priebe offers excellent classes in her home in Milford.
Biking:  Wear a helmet.
