Cardio help.

Hello.
Years of abusing my joints has finally caught up with me...
I recently discovered that I have Osteochondritis Dissecans on my ankle (on the talus). Doctor advised me against exercise that involves putting a lot of stress on my ankle... which is any kind of exercise that involves running...
Only cardio activity I can think of is Swimming but I have torn labrum on my left shoulder which needs surgery. Every time I try to swim I dislocate my shoulder...

I would like to keep in shape. I love doing cardio. Please help me find a good cardio exercise.

swimming isn't the only thing you can do in the pool.

you can try some light jogging or running along with squats and lunges, the buoyancy of the water can decrease the compression of on your joints, especially in your ankle..resistance can be add'd by increasing speed of movement of surface area of movement limb(s)

regarding you dislocating your shoulder, I'm assuming it's with an overhead motion, so just avoid overhead strokes.

aside from swimming, cycling might be good as well so long as it's flat roads and light pedaling, as that can be less compressive to your TC joint, but the repetitive motion in your ankle could cause further degen as well...

I see you are in so cal.LA...out of curiosity who is your MD? Is he a podiatrist or foot/ankle ortho specialist? Also, if you have an instability in your shoulder, why not get that addressed, so you can begin a swimming regiment once repaired....if you need/want a few shoulder surgeon suggestions here in so cal, shoot me a pm....

my occupation: physical therapist, outpatient ortho clinical setting..NOT a "forum idiot"

You can do walking or some jogging for your fitness purposes.
You can also control your body weight through your diet plan.
Eat raw veggies diets instead of fried, junk, and fast foods to be fit and healthy.

Cycling is good. I would choose flat, straight surfaces at first, then try hills (moderate ones at first). Swimming is excellent; relieves stress on the joints, and you tend to burn more calories.
Aside from that, you can choose a football track at a school that has the new rubberized surface.
Choose a good shoe, like Asics, with some good insert. I have flat feet, and tendonitis on the left foot. I wear Asics Gel running shoes, with an insert called Sofsole. Works really good. I jog on the treadmill; sometimes it hurts me, but better than before.
Hope that helps.

Let me ask: why do you want to do cardio? I know you said "Keep is shape"
But does that mean you are trying to lose fat or do you need to build endurance for some reason? I'm guessing the former considering your ailments.
If true, the most effective way to lose fat is through proper dieting and eating habits.
Go to a p/t to rehab your injuries and let them tell you when you are ready for additional exercise.

I agree you more than half of the equation is a clean diet. Beyond that...there are lots of machines in the gym that won't put stress on your ankle like running will. Elliptical types of machines work fine with the same cardio benefit.

Also, most people don't realize the cardio benefit you get from weight training, especially if you do it with intensity and keep the pace going. But also building muscle speeds your metabolism up, so you will burn more fat.

I know this will sound funny but I'm not trying to be, but sex 40 minutes a day will keep you nice and fit with no pressure on your ankles, well that all depends on preferred positions, and don't forget a nice low cal diet

I'm sure you can find someone that being said you may need multiple girls different in the morning, afternoon and night

Or you can always pay someone just like going to a chiro, physio or a "massage" therapist
