Thanks for all the info. Yes – the video I like is Chapman Fu – who is a Canadian Registered Physiotherapist and Acupuncturist. I will have to see what tomorrow brings, but I can say that after doing the 7 recommended exercises this morning, my pain dissipated and remains absent at this point – 13 hours later. Forward bends are next to nothing for me. I have always been very flexible, and despite being in terrible shape these days, I can still bend over (standing position) and touch my toes without ANY effort. There is no stretch in that specific exercise for me. The exercise that recommends a forward bend from a sitting position feels positively BLISSFUL. But again, I will see what tomorrow (and future days) bring. If I start to hurt, I will know I've made an error in judgement….

I also found a video that showed how to address the trigger point you are explaining. That may also have contributed to how good I felt today. I just know that my feet, my legs, and my lower back have been essentially pain free today 🙂

@iceblue, I haven't seen that name come up lately? It has been a very tough year, emotionally for me. Are you still having "essentially" pain-free days? I think "Blissful" was your description. I don't quite know what group we are in here, I just saw your iceblue go by and wanted to check-in.

May you be content and at ease.
