The business of stretching

Postby Anne smith » Tue Jun 04, 2013 11:24 pm

Hi I would just like all your opinions on bending! Am I right in saying if I do a lot of it it makes me "flare" as I am reasonably mobile this possibility has come slow to me, but already I am making some strange shapes when I have to bend" strange ballet moves and much kneeling and bobbing down instead of(not good with a bad knee! Has anyone got one of these grabbers?? I don't care about going all geriatric if it helps? If all this is my imagination just egnore me ! But I think I have Hearn bending is one of the "not to be encouraged before!"

Anne,
Bending is an issue but not entirely understood by me. I think it is just another way to pull on our favorite nerve. Everyone seems to have different tolerances but it can easily flare for some at a small degree and I think the furtheryou bend over the worse. I got a grabber early on and it is handy for me to get things out of the dryer like my socks that hide in the back! I can do some shortbends but the longer really I should know better.

I have chronic bunion pain started/surgery at age 21. TG gave me back enough sitting to keep my job and join in some social activities. I wish the best to everyone!

Anne, if you have a nerve entrapment bending could be a problem. This page explains it:

I had one of those grabbers that is shown on the page. It's OK if you are picking up light items and if you have the grabber nearby when you need it (I had several around the house).

PNE since 2002. Started from weightlifting. PNE surgery from Dr. Bautrant, Oct 2004. Pain now is usually a 0 and I can sit for hours on certain chairs. No longer take medication for PNE. Can work full time and do "The Firm" exercise program. 99% cured from PGAD. PNE surgery was right for me but it might not be for you. Do your research.

Thanks so much violet and Janet
Yes I now feel it is something I'm going to be aware of!! Strange but when I'm painting I rarely drop the brush, but when I'm hairdressing I'm always dropping my comb!( what we need girls is a flunkie? " servant buy another name!

Violet, I bought a grabber at hardware store. It will pick up many heavy items as well as delicate. Love it. I definitely flare from frequent bending.

That would be great to have one that picks up heavy things. Wondering where you got it from.

Thanks,
