I think that's one of the cool things about trikes & sidecars is it gives people with medical conditions & disabilities the ability to keep on riding. I'm in the same boat with degradational arthritis. ...had a badly herniated disk (neck) that actually caused me spinal cord damage. It was a tough go for a while there, but as strength and motor skills returned, I bought a sidecar for my Goldwing... and then a KLR rig. I find it is so good for the spirits to keep on truckin'... I mean sidecarin'
