  • Stretching

    I'm a Canadian para and going to live on my own in a few days! But I found last week the CCAC (they provide home care) no longer provides stretching as a service. I have chronic nerve in my leg and I've been stretching since my injury almost 11 years ago.

    How many people get stretching done? Where are you from?

    Have you tries using a stretching loop band? It will probably take some practice but with upper body strength and coordination, you should be able to do it.--eak

      Most of our clients with paraplegia can learn how to do their own range of motion (stretching) exercises with a few minor pieces of equipment like leg loops and/or Theraband.

        I agree with KLD. Someone should be able to set up a program for you to stretch yourself. That way, you are not limited as to the time of day that you are doing it.
