RE: knee pads

Donna: I know...whenever I have to be working on flagstone or among the
rocks, I try to pad the knees. For everything else I just use the thin
kneeling pad for a little cushion but not too much.

Subject: RE: [CHAT] knee pads

Interesting thought. But somehow I can't see myself climbing on those
rocks<br>and boulders without some kind of protection.... maybe the soft
ground, but<br>not the rocks.<br><br>Donna<br><br>> <br>> Judy: Am
married to a flooring installer who refuses to ever, ever wear<br>> knee
pads for any reason...says an ortho. doc told him long ago that the<br>>
rolling around of the knee cap that pads allow for actually causes
more<br>> arthritis inducing damage than it prevents. DH claims the
simple<br>> kneeling pads that only provide a little cushion but
stabilize the knee<br>> cap are better for you, if something of a pain
in the butt cause you<br>> have to move it each time you move. Don't
know how much knee pad<br>> technology has come along in the intervening
years since DH had that<br>> conversation with his doc, but might want
to check on it if you're going<br>> to be using them much.<br>> <br>>
