Gentle stretches

I do some gentle stretches while having a hot shower. Then I apply lashings of Deep Heat. While I’m getting ready for work I have the radio on and have a little dance to shake off the stiffness.

My car has heated seats, which is amazing for my back/hips while driving. I wear a TENS machine in work if I need or use a wheat pillow.
