I think with light exercize you keep your body moving and it may help with pain. If you started having pain while working out, you should not push yourself. Walking or Yoga or swimming would be a good start. I used to use a Yoga DVD at home, then started doing one on tv too. We went walking at a local track. I felt a heck of a lot better then than I do now mentally and physically! I've been meaning to get back to it but have a million excuses right now but I do plan on getting back to it!
