I was encouraged to give "copper heelers" a fair try, despite my early doubts.

The first result was that after 3 days morning stiffness in ankle and knee joints had completely gone. I no longer took time to "get going" when I woke up.

After 3-4 weeks, I found I was turning over in bed without pain and sleeping better.

Although my hip joint is still defective, it only troubles me occasionally and I find I can live more spontaneously again. I can have robust fun with the Grandchildren picking the little ones up and climbing to the tops of castles with the older ones! I am very grateful to feel more care free again.
