Dr. Rebecca Manno, Director of the Johns Hopkins Rheumatology Exercise Center answers the question; “My doctor told me to lose weight but I can’t exercise because my knees hurt, what can I do?”
- Nutrition – Having a nutrition plan is just as important as exercise. See a dietitian to talk about the nutritional aspect of your weight loss plan.
- Exercise – Along with nutrition, it is also important to have an exercise plan that is right for you. You can increase your exercise plan in terms of intensity and length as you begin to lose weight from the nutrition side of your weight loss plan.
