physical activities with PTTD and pronation

What physical activities can those of you with severe pronation and PTTD, with it affecting you from feet to hips, do without (much) pain --and enjoy. My 14yo son wears orthotic leg braces and has a LOT of pain and problems, has been very inactive for too long. His knees and hips give him a lot of problems as well as ankles and feet (and calves, thighs --the whole feet to hips thing I already said). I'm looking for short-length activities that he can manage on his best days, things that won't seem like I'm trying to get him active -things he'll have fun with. I've thought of a few and we try a couple, but I'd love to have a lot of ideas from those who are living with the same pain my son is.
Thank you,
Meghan/mom

Re: physical activities with PTTD and pronation

It seems that something non weight bearing like swimming would be best assuming he can remove the braces. The water is soft and forgiving on joints. Kids usually perceive things like bobbing, splashing, and/or kicking holding a kickboard or the side of the pool as fun rather than exercise. Good luck, I agree that the right kind of physical activity would likely make him feel better.
