I had so much pain in my back and knees that limited my walking and taking care of my needs at home. Pain was due to osteoarthritis in me knees and a cracked vertebrae in my spine. I was unable to get in and out of a car, and sitting and standing activities were painful. I also had difficulty standing for prolonged periods to cook meals or wash dishes. My therapy was educational. I learned about my conditions, other options to ease my pain, exercises to ease my pain and strengthening my legs and back. I also learned what home exercises to do when i am alone. I feel better now even though some of the pain is still there. I am able to walk with my walker in the hallway for longer periods of time before i get tired
