Default Re: Stiffness after physical activity

Welcome to the forum LCargill, I read that your into doing janitor work. Well that is what I do and even doing the lighter side and letting others do the heavier work is hard work. I am not able to lift heavy items or mop big areas of floor, but I still do lots of stuff.

I help keep a gym clean with vac sweeping and broom pushing, washing equipment and cleaning restrooms and doing laundry. So even though it is part time at 15 hours a week I am pretty tired when I get home. If I get home and sit down if any length of time my hips get stiff and I can hardly move.

I do mild stretching exercises and keep my heating pad close by. If I have more to do that day I don't sit for very long but keep moving until my chores are completely done.
