Well right now he thinks my shoulder is being pinched so that is good news, and he gave me a treatment on my shoulder with these patches that has an antiflamortary in them and they hooked them up to this little box that has jumper cables on them, LOL!! Then they put moist heat on top of that. It has helped but I had allergic reaction to the med or the laxtex on the patches. He is trying to find out if the one is not latex one is not the other might be. I'm allergic to latex with sticky stuff on them. Sam

Wow, sounds quite interesting! I hope it helps, and I'm sorry about the reaction you had. So many people are allergic to latex these days . You didn't even hear of such a thing 10 years ago.

Take care Sam

Best of luck to ya Sam, remember that it takes time to feel the good results of therapy, but it is so worth it. Let us know how you progress.
