  • Perceived effectiveness for Stiffness/Spasticity: Moderate
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 5 min Daily
Advice & Tips: From Oct2012 to April2012 I was unable to do the daily sun salutation, due to shoulder pain. The PT thinks it was probably the fall when i missed the step at JAn's party. It has not gone away. I felt it the other day when i slipped a little on an ice patch. I am doing the sun salutation again. Some evening in front of the TV i do many stretches.
