Why does Metamucil make me stool kind of "stringy like"at times. Kind of strings together , i thought this would "soften" not be like icky silly putty?

Heat and stretch basically is telling the therapist to heat the joint/muscle/ligamemts or tendons in question then stretch them. Reverse putty scraping? That is a new one to me. Do ask your therapist if you are interested. ...Read more
