Our expert says:
I'm sceptical, I must confess. For one thing, there is no guarantee that with your history of back and knee pain, it won't make it worse. I doubt it, but then I'm not convinced that it will work either. There's little research to suggest that it is effective for the purposes that most people use it - I presume you would use it as a means for weight loss? In that case, then rather stick to swimming and other forms of cardio, which I know are effective. Obviously, you have to be a little careful with that knee, and so I'd suggest maybe see about working on the strength part of the knee as well, if you're at a gym that is. The instructors at the gym will be able to help in that regard!
