Here are some examples of exercises for resistance training. Start each exercise slowly. Ease off the exercise if you start to have pain.
Your doctor or physiotherapist will tell you when you can start these exercises and which ones will work best for you.
Follow-up care is a key part of your treatment and safety. Be sure to make and go to all appointments, and call your doctor or nurse call line if you are having problems. It's also a good idea to know your test results and keep a list of the medicines you take.
