I'm 275 lbs. w/ joint pain and gait abnormalaties. should I walk in water or cycle? Can you give me an examples of exercises I should do?
----------

If you are wanting to lose wight, exercise is fine.

BUT, drastically cutting your carbohydrate intake will work much better. Continue to eat meat, fish, cheese, eggs, butter, leafy green salads, etc. Don't eat more than 2200 calories.

Also, drink water and not diet soda. No more fruits or pasta or potato or corn or anything starchy or having carbs.

I bet you'll see pounds drop off pretty quickly. But, you have to be disciplined.  (+ info)

procedures in using four point alternate gait in crutches?


Mark, the procedure is the following: start from a standing position and advance the crutch that is opposite the injured leg. For instance if it is your right leg that is the weaker one then start with the left crutch then move the right leg forward. Next advance the right crutch and then the left leg. The object of this gait pattern is extreme stability and support. There are always 3 points of stability on the ground at anytime. With time people can get fairly fast in this gait and when they do it will drop down to having only 2 points of contact. They tend to move the leg and crutch simultaneously thus defeating the purpose of the pattern.  (+ info)

Why do we go up and down when we walk (gait)?


You know how other animals don't really bob up and down as much as we do? Why do we do it a lot? Is it a product of bipedalism? If we walked digitigrade would we bob more?
----------

People who study martial arts are trained in balance. They say a human walk is "a controlled fall". That is, we tend to lean forward a little as if to fall. Then we extend our legs in time to catch ourselves and move the each leg back accordingly, over and over. We fall, then rise, then fall, then rise.- catching ourselves with each step along the way.  (+ info)
