I would like to share a personal family experience of my aunt who is suffering from diabetes and arthritis and how she managed to escape a knee surgery just by performing cardio every day.

Few years back my aunt was diagnosed with diabetes and arthritis. After only a week of her diagnosis, she had difficulty in walking or standing up. We had to hire a physiotherapist who helped her to do some basic exercises as her arthritis was worsening. After consultation from an orthopedic surgeon, we were told that she had to replace her knee in order to make her walk, stand or sit properly. This was quiet a risk for her and she refused to go with the surgery. The procedure was quite painful as well as expensive.

She agreed to bear the pain but not with the surgery. The physiotherapist continued to help her with basic exercises which were showing very slow improvement. Many a times her pain flared up and we even thought of quitting the physiotherapy thing until I bought a treadmill.

I bought a treadmill when a sudden spark of being fit and healthy flared up inside of me. I used to run every day on the treadmill for 10-15 minutes. Seeing my progress as I began losing inches, my aunty one day asked me to try the treadmill herself. After helping her to walk on a very slow pace on the treadmill for some days she miraculously showed signs of drastic improvements in her walking and sitting style. Moreover she started using the treadmill all by herself.

We are still unsure whether it was due to the treadmill that she showed improvement or it was physiotherapy. But the most noticeable thing here is that she is showing amazing recovery from arthritis and can now even walk to the store all by herself. I am very amazed and hopeful that she will continue to use the treadmill and I encourage all of you to exercise daily at least for half an hour.

Let me know what you think in the comments section about what could be the reason of her speedy recovery after using the treadmill. One thing to add up here, if you are looking to buy a treadmill, contact these treadmill suppliers to get the best deals.
