6:48 am

6:49 am
arthritis foundation every time you log on. you get tips and video clips. it's important to keep moving if you have osteoarthritis the natural thing is to not want to move because it works. i have it in my neck. so i have to really keep on top of it. so we want a resource and community for people to learn how to manage theirs if they have it. >> great idea. >> yeah, how are you doing? >> doing great. i'm reminded, satchel page always said you have to keep moving. this is sage advice for the longest time. why do people -- why do you think people throw in the towel? have a couple of aleves and go take a walk. >> i know, i know. i don't know. i think -- i'm sure all of my falling, crashing into the boards, at 90 miles per hour didn't help. but that -- when you're in
6:50 am
pain you just don't want it to hurt so you just think if you are being still but keeping the joints lubricated and if you log on to our -- the web site and the facebook page we'll show you, there will be demonstrations of exercises and gentle stretching, of things that one can do for their osteoarthritis. our fitness trainer terry walsh will be demonstrating so you can customize it to whatever part of the body you need the help. so. i mean, modern medicine is great. but i think getting -- keeping moving doesn't mean marathon or anything. it is just gentle exercises and stretches. it's really what will help. >> do you stretch before you get out of bed? while still in bed do you start your stretching? seriously? >> do i start dressing? before i get out of bed? >> no, stretching while you're in bed. >> oh, stretching.
6:51 am
sorry. i wondered. >> believe it or not the other question was a lot cooler and probably would get a better answer. >> i was looking forward to the answer actually. >> i know we're friends - >> having said that, do you start even before you stand up? >> you know, i don't. i don't. but for all the skating and everything that i've done i've always stretched. that kind of stretching that i did and do for skating is different than what i do for the arthritis in my neck. it's just sitting down, doing this and it's -- half of it is just remembering to do it. >> sure. >> not only do i have to remember to do it, i have to do it. >> wait a minute. dorothy, let's go back to the cooler question. do you start dressing while you're in bed? there you go. >> i don't know. >> listen, we've only got about a minute left. we were talking before we rolled the tape, we were
