Limited Mobility Exercise

Exercise is essential for all diabetes patients, but it may be harder for some individuals. If you have a disability, are overweight, have joint problems, or have a breathing condition then you may have to adjust your exercises.

For aerobic exercises, individuals with mobility issues find that exercising in water alleviates their issues. The water reduces the pressure on your joints while maintaining the health benefits. Swimming or "aquajogging" are great options. If you don't have access to a pool, chair aerobics are a great option to raise your heart rate without having to stress your joints.

For resistance exercises, the most important rule is to start slowly. Start with the lowest weight you have and raise it as you become more comfortable. If you have an upper body limitation, such as a shoulder injury, focus more on lower body exercises. If you have a lower body injury, focus more on upper body exercises.
