Viv's tips: Fatigue Flare-up Management

Posted Aug 26 2008 4:11pm
FATIGUE FLARE-UP MANAGEMENT



* Increase frequency of spine towels (will note the use of spine towels below)



* Always use posture supports when lying or sitting, especially arm supports.



* Decrease intensity of exercise and activities--ENERGY CONSERVATION.



SPINE TOWEL SET-UP



1). On your bed or a flat surface, place a small folded towel or pillow down.



2). Leave about 4 to 5 inches of space, then horizontally place a small towel rolled up at top of spine (right at shoulder level).



3). Right under the towel you just placed according to number 2 above, roll up a towel and place it vertically down the middle of the spine.



4). Now place a pillow right where your bottom will be when you lay down.



5). Sorry, I missed this one....lay down on the set-up you did, 1-4..for about 10 minutes.





NOTE: Do this for at least 10 minutes. You can also change it to where you bend your knees and place the pillows under your knees.



I do this and it helps me, especially when I am very fatigued.



I hope and pray this helps you and others.
