Elderly patients be careful with captain Morgan technique. You can actually break the fibula if you put too much force on the lower extremity

Another suggestion for a petite person doing the Captain Morgan technique -- lower the bed all the way and stand on a low stool (the one you use for CPR, not the one on wheels!). Gives me better leverage.

I've tried the Rocket launcher technique with great success-helps load the reducer's legs.
