Before sharing what helps my conditions (fibromyalgia, spinal stenosis, lumbar spondylolisthesis, moderate-to-severe osteoarthritis in spine & hip), let me stress that before engaging in any exercise always check with your doctor to see if it may be safe for you.


That being said, water therapy is my best medicine. The water provides a buoyant atmosphere allowing our bodies to move more easily than on land.


Best of luck to you.
