    Byrt, thank you for sharing this and I am happy that you have a system that is working for you. The tracking, the stickers (a key component!) and the feedback loop with your PT are essential to your success. BTW, everything came through loud and clear, no language issues were detected. :-)
    The part where your assistants hold one hip while the other stretches the other side reminds me of the “Carey Stretch” where the technicians use their whole bodies in the stretching process. This was originally developed for athletes but is suitable for everyone. Oh, how I love this stretch! Check out this video on YouTube – they show how they stretch volleyball players, but it will give you an idea of how hands-on this is – these people are committed! It’s a 2:01 video but you only need to watch from :50 to 1:15, because those 25 seconds will give you the idea.

    There is a place in San Diego that specializes in this, and the loose and relaxed feeling gained from a session has been unparalleled for me, and no physical therapy session or massage has duplicated it. I have moved to another state and there is no place here that does this stretch. :-(
    For those forum participants who do not have two assistants at the ready to help them with their physical therapy and stretching (lucky Byrt!), if you have a stretch place in your area (not to advertise for them but it was called Stretch U in San Diego) do yourself a favor and try out the 20-minute Carey Stretch – I think you might be able to get a coupon for a free first visit.
    If you have the time (and a little more money) I would recommend the 40-minute session which is their own Lock-and-Stretch. Lying down on a massage bed they do a warm up where “tissues are locked into place and then gently stretched to produce circulation in muscle, tendons, joints, and most importantly fascial components. All major muscle groups are warmed up and released in preparation of the manual stretch of all major muscle groups.”
    In all, they do well over a hundred stretches that combine “passive stretching, contract-relax techniques, and neural flossing glides to all major muscle groups, upper, and lower extremities”.
    I miss u, Stretch U!
