Flex-Stick Review....Helping me walk better one step at a time........ :)


"The 'FLEX-STICK', byRANjAM, LLC is the exciting new three legged, revolutionary walking cane. Comfort and control are provided as spring-loaded legs cushion the hand while maintaining contact with the ground as the 'FLEX-STICK' tilts with normal walking.  Replaces quad canes & single point canes."

"With the 'FLEX-STICK', some of the most uneven surfaces are made much easier to negotiate as the legs compensate and the springs act as shock absorbers, moving up and down to level out the ride, much the same way as an automobile handles bumps and pot holes." 

This is NOT a cane.  It's a ''FLEX-STICK!

The gorgeous blue one in the middle is the one that RANjAM so generously sent me :)

Don't you just love the design???  
I do!!!

I have gotten so many compliments just on the design,
and then they will start looking at the actual Flex-Stick itself 
and noticing that this isn't your everyday cane that you see people
walking with. This Flex-Stick is absolutely amazing.

The first time I took it to my Doctor appointment with me,
my Dr. immediately noticed the design and asked me to check it out.
He was very interested in the spring-loaded legs,
knowing that with my Sciatica and crushed tail-bone, that this is 
probably exactly what I need.
I left him all the information and he even put the brochures that I had 
brought with me up in his office for his patients to see.

Pretty much the same thing happened at my Physical Therapist's office.
She was amazed at the design and when I showed her how it works,
that when I put my bad leg down, I put the Flex-Stick down
at the exact same time on the other side and it
practically does all the work for me.

The Flex-Stick is amazing when you are walking on uneven surfaces.
Because of the spring-loaded legs, one or two or however many are needed will
actually go down only as far as needed to make me still walk level.
I love it, but more does my back :)

I almost forgot to add that the Flex-Stick comes with a 
built in flashlight. It's right at hand level so you can easily turn it 
on and off when needed. It comes in so handy when walking
at night, or when looking for the door locks!!

Check out this video....


The 'FLEX-STICK' comes in two (2) adjustable sizes
'standard' - 31.5" to 38.5" (80 cm to 98 cm) approximate heights from 4'10" to 6'2".

You won't be sorry.

you will NEVER use a cane again!!!

Back pain remedies....

Lately I've been reading up on some natural and/or herbal back pain remedies that might work.

I'm at least going to give them each a try, so I thought I'd share them with you and see if
either any of you have already tried them or have heard of them...


if any of you might also want to check any of them out....

-Rubbing the back with almond oil and mint oil is also effective home remedies for backache

-- Take sugar candy and khas khas grass in equal amounts and make a powder out of these. Take six grams of this powder with milk, twice in a day.

-- Take three garlic cloves every morning. Also applying garlic oil on the affected area will give you comfort from the pain. To make garlic oil fry ten to twelve garlic cloves in some oil. These oil is very good remedy for backaches.

I got this from here.
