At the risk of repeating myself . . .Posted by Nancy S. on 2/21/00 at 00:00 (016151)
. . . for the record, john a, I don't think anyone here is advocating rest and nothing else. That would be stupid. Obviously, it is just one component of a treatment plan. I think it is dangerous to pooh-pooh it as part of treatment to newcomers, just as it would be dangerous to go to bed, never use the foot for a year, and then try to function normally with an atrophied limb. But I'm tired of saying this, so I'll end by praising Rick's advice to Barb, which I think is excellent.
