What is it?



  • I have DDD throughout my lumbar spine and even if I take a short nap as well as getting up in the morning I do the log roll. Roll to the edge of the bed and using the arm under you slowly bring it up until you're in a sitting position and always hold the bed when you get up off the bed, chair whatever to support your back. It takes me 15 minutes to get up and it's hard when you need to go to the washroom! I use the desk chair handles to drag myself up as it has wheels on it, anything to save my back. Before having the facet joint injections it took at least a half hour to get up!

    There's others I think Bubblegum-Eve or others could explain the logroll better..Charry

  • compounded by whatever else ails us. A friend of mine used to have to get up and have a long, hot bath every morning before she could get ready to go to school and teach. And she was forty at the the time. My sis also is very stiff in the morning but eases up as she gets moving.
