I am handicapped,use a walker or cane. Have just installed stair lift so after 1 year living on the 1st floor sleeping on an uncomfortable sofa bed I now can ride up to bed. I use the pool for walking,stretching and working to improve my balance.Also, for the 30 minutes I am in water I am almost pain free. I am fortunate to have good health aides to assist me around my house, do errands and help me so I can stay in my home.Also,I wear a brace which doesn't help me much. In 2002 I had pulmonary embolisms so that is the reason Idecided not to have a knee replacement
