I read something that said Wii is a good way for older adults to help them be more active. Well I got a Wii for just that reason a few months ago and loved playing around with it. But I ended up with lots of pain in my big toe that even with rest didn't get better. I went to the ortho doc and he said I had no space in the big toe joints and he was surprised it took the wii (in my bare feet) to make it hurt so bad. He gave me a shot of Cortisone and it got better and I'll do wii in nice sturdy sneakers now. I think people with RA should be careful about this.
I told the doc the reason my toe had never stopped me before was that usually my hips hurts before anything else gets a chance but something about the Wii didn't make my hip hurt.
Isn't it funny how every activity makes some different part of you body hurt.
