IMPORTANT FLEXTEND® INFORMATION

READ BEFORE STARTING YOUR EXERCISE PROGRAM

  • Always consult your Physician before starting any type of exercise program. Bring FLEXTEND®, attachment systems and Instruction Manual/Exercise Therapy Guide with you to assist the Physician / Therapist in recommending the correct exercise program for your condition.

  • Carefully review the manual before using FLEXTEND®. FLEXTEND® and its attachments/kits are for use by adults who have read the instruction manual and understand how to use the FLEXTEND® Training Systems properly.

  • The exercise programs should be followed as described in the Instruction Manual unless something different is recommended by your Physician or Therapist .

  • If you have pain WHILE PERFORMING any of the exercises, stop immediately!

  • DISCLAIMER : The FLEXTEND® Training System, it s attachments and/or /programs are used to exercise the fingers, hands, wrists, forearms, elbows, shoulders, chest, back, biceps, triceps and forearms and are not intended as a cure for any type of disease.

  • All FLEXTEND® come pre-assembled. If further resistance is necessary, tighten the resistance band.

  • The FLEXTEND® attachments / kits come ready for use with their own instructions for use.

  • Muscle Rebounding is a protective response that affects approximately 5% of FLEXTEND® users within the first 2 weeks of starting an exercise program . This response usually follows within 1-3 hours after performing the exercises with symptoms such as muscle spasms, cramping, or feeling the need to massage and/or stretch the muscles. When an injury has been present for any significant length of time, the body eventually adapts and perceives the condition as normal. Thus any attempts to correct the condition causes the body's natural defense mechanisms to react, or in this case, the muscles to "rebound" (tighten, cramp). Individuals experiencing Muscle Rebounding might assume that reducing the amount of exercises will help, though this is exactly the opposite of what needs to take place: Each time Muscle Rebounding starts, immediately perform 2-3 sets* of Palm-Up Isolated in order to counteract this response.

  • Depending on on the injury, you should begin to feel relief between 2-4 weeks into the exercise program. (NOTE: Except for Trigger Finger syndrome which takes about 6-weeks before the relief is typically experienced.)

  • If you do not feel any type of improvement at the end of 3-weeks, order Clinician Services for guidance and receive an Extended Money-Back Guarantee !!!
