and now with the tumors on my spine, I am in constant agony. I'm trying to avoid becoming completely addicted to pain pills so I've really upped my stretches and yoga. My back and shoulders are in constant pain so that's been my most worked on/focused on areas. These bands have been a lifesaver. They facilitate my stretches and make it SO much more effective! Sounds weird, but I like to lie on the stairs with a step pushing into my back with my arms over my head and giving them resistance stretches using these. They super duper help, yo! Different resistances help with different levels of pain and TRUST ME, these are making a difference. As I type this, I'm in less pain than I was than when I first started using these.
I've also been trying to make my arms and shoulders stronger to make getting around in a wheelchair easier and these are really helping.
