Scleroderma and Exercise?

27 posts in this topic

I am learning alot from reading all the posts here. I try to keep physically active . ON flare ups, of course things are restricted. But overall I walk, do alot of water aerobics, core exercises and small weights with limited exercises as not to aggravate the shoulders. I find exercise has been the number one deterent of pain and even when I don't want to , I try to do them and usually I am always happy I did. Sometimes though the legs won't walk and feet hurt too much. That is where water and pilates come in.

I love to strectch everyday for at least 15 minutes. It makes me feel so much better. Susie54

Soaring Eagle,


It’s never too late to contribute to any of our topics. I like how your gym doesn’t allow portable music devices to encourage friendships and how it’s a science-based program. I am also glad to hear there’s been noticeable improvement in your bone mass. That’s encouraging for those of us who have experienced bone loss. Thanks for sharing your exercise experience!





I agree water aerobic is relaxing and not so hard on the joints. I prefer stretching for a few minutes in the morning. It stretches the muscles and gets the joints moving. Sometimes I don’t feel up to walking, but like you, I also feel better afterwards! Keep that great motivational spirit!




Live well, Laugh often, Love much
