    @RED HOWARD I sat in an office chair with wheels just high enough so my feet were fully planted on the ground then gently rolled back and forth with my foot stationary until I could feel the stretch going a little further each session. it worked great for me.

    Nothing different. I have no problems with bending. As a matter of fact I sit at a taller chair with a metal ring about a foot off the ground ... It used to be so hard to bend my knee to put my foot on the ring.. I don’t even think about it now.

The shock of an extra 1/3 increase of insurance was very hard on me...
