To Salina

I am sorry to learn of your painful experience. The pain is awful, I know. I had it and made it worse by over stretching. Only until after months of REST was I able to get back to gentle stretching. Now, after months of being pain-free am I able to do more aggressive stretching. I am now running five miles several times a week, pain-free.

While I was in total REST mode I was wearing the nightsplint and strassberg sock which I know hastened my recovery. I cannot imagine stretching while in pain, but not everybody is alike. Good luck! BG
