Why in The World Didn't Someone Tell Me???
Sunday, March 08, 2015
I have discovered an important secret that every person on the face of the earth should know. Some of you probably already know. My discovery was February 5, 2015. A little late in my life to find out this amazing thing that has been changing my life, but "Now I Know."
If someone had told me this years ago, I probably would have said, (You're kidding! or Really, no joke?). This life changing information has done just that, or it is starting to change it.
As some of you know, I have been going to physical therapy for my knees. This physical therapy started on Feb. 5, 2015. A blessing for sure. With my assessment, came a discussion with my therapist. My ham strings are extremely tight. So, I am thinking (HUH???). What does that have to do with my knees. It seems I pulled ham strings in both legs while in a chair exercise class (OUCH!!!). Those ham strings are attached to my knees. Tight ham strings = bad knees + bad legs. Hard for me to walk most of the time.
So to say the least, the BIG secret that everyone should know...... Drum roll please....... Stretching. Oh yeah..... Ham String stretches. This has helped my legs and my knees. I am not cured, and it will be a very long haul, but I am better off doing these stretches and getting better all of the time.
Not giving up...... sometimes I want to give up and I get discouraged, but I think of the reward I will receive when I do these stretches and exercises. Then I get moving.
What a revelation and blessing with this great bit of information.
