My shoulder isn't in a lot of pain, but it definitely gets very stiff and some days I have very little mobility. Frozen shoulder is what it sounds like to me. I found this site and am curious to try it. Anyone have any experience with this before or tried this treatment? http://kingbrand.com/Frozen_Shoulder_Treatment.php?REF=46PV46.192
I use one of these for back pain and I find it works well. They use far infrared, healing crystals, and magnets to speed the healing process. Affordable price too. Cold laser works great on frozen shoulder as well.
The Iyashi infrared shoulder wrap fits comfortably around your shoulder to provide general support and stabilization along with harmonize the body's surrounding bio-field.

The Iyashi infrared shoulder wrap provides natural far-infrared heat through the use of natural crystals such as tourmaline and germanium. Far Infrared heat is very soothing and relaxing.

If you experience any shoulder issues or irritation you can use the Iyashi infrared shoulder wrap. It can be worn directly against the skin or over a thin piece of clothing for the best results.
I was having a lot of mid back pain, also some pain and stiffness in my right arm. I found out by accident what was causing it. I was just reviewing a Youtube vid on Traditional Chinese Medicine and tongue analysis. Looking at my tongue I saw it had a white coat. It didn't go away with brushing. CTM says a white coated tongue can be related to liver problems, so I did a liver flush. The tongue improved immediately, and so did the aches and pains.
I saw a site by a masseuse who has noticed that back pain, arm pain and stiffness, shoulder pain and even left hip pain can be caused by gallstones.
And btw I found Stone Free tablets to work great and to be a lot less hassle than liver flushing. They also don't make you feel tired after using them. Stone Free has two problems, though. The tabs are slightly acidic. You have to be sure to compensate for that with additional alkalinity in your diet. Also, unlike with liver flushes, you don't have any outward visible signs of the stones going away (it also treats kidney stones btw).
Back pain was my primary symptom. I had pain between shoulder blades, sometimes in neck, and sometimes lower back. I also discovered by accident on the internet that it was Gallstones and have been flushing on and off ever since. I never had a gallbladder attack but probably that was in my future.
Thanks for the heads up on Stone Free. I might try that. I am clearly still making stones and I'd love not to need to flush every 6 months. My body lets me know whether I need to flush, so I'll know if it's working. The review on Amazon are pretty impressive.
It is an eye opener indeed. Thank you so much for the info,do you know anything as well, perhaps a material or machine that could help me with my every day routine while i find solution with my back pain?
Everyone internalizes, expresses or reacts to their emotions differently: i.e. some bury their fear and traumatic memories in their painful stomachs, some in their tight lungs, yet others in their heart, and so on.
Over the years, I had my share of painful emotions: a twisted stomach, frozen shoulders, tooth root canal inflammation, and sciatica. I watched people close to me getting asthma attach, heart problems, and colon cancer (sigh).
There are many ways to relieve the heavy burden of painful memories and emotions.
When I was working at the Ann Wigmore Institute, I met a veteran on the beach, who had fears and painful memories. We did the emotional release protocol, and tears poured from his eyes, relieving the burden. I wish, I had more time to spend with him.
My favorite way to deal with emotions is positive thinking, and using therapeutic grade essential oils.
If you would like more information on many ways to deal with painful memories, read the following collection of posts:
I am now mostly free of a frozen right shoulder. I had it about 3 years ago after doing some hanging from bars. It was a passive hang so I wasn't gripping the bar just hanging loosely from it. I had a sudden pain in my right shoulder so stopped hanging. The pain persisted and I couldn't raise my arm very far in front of me and not much out to the side.
I went to 3 different doctors in Thailand. The first one gave me an MRI and told me I had a torn tendon in the rotator cuff. All 3 doctors recommended surgery to repair the tendon. I decided not to go through with it and look for an alternative.
I found two chiropractors one in London one in Thailand and neither of them were able to help me. I didn't try any particular supplements. Eventually I found a Thai medical massage practitioner in Chiang Mai. I saw her a few times and after the massage I had greater range of motion. After that I did nothing. After a total of two years my arm is much better but I still have some slight pain. I have read that frozen shoulders fix themselves and I can attest to this. I don't know if my tendon is still torn but I am back to bar hanging and exercise in general. I feel that the Thai massage helped the most but time seemed to be the best cure after all I went through.
I need help, we've been to 3 doctors. The foot brace, the prednisone, and today the cortizone shot. She is ready to kill herself. She wont stop crying or taking klonazepam. She is in so much pain. There's no hope is there? We're seriously considering having the foot amputated. I'm not kidding. Has anyone ever heard of this?
This idiot promised the world when we first went there. One of the most reputable doctors in Masschusetts for podiatry. Today he shot her foot with cortizone and now she's ready to die. Any ideas are appreciated.
I meant to say FOOT, not FOOD, I edited the message. However she has flat feet. Birkenstock shoes provided some relief. doctor told her to throw them out. He gave her a night splint and she went back in a week. Pain Pain Pain. He gave her a Star Wars Storm Trooper boot to wear for 3 weeks. Pain Pain Pain, while taking prednisone which makes her sweat profusely, no sex drive, etc. This is odd, the no sex drive. However unimportant at the moment. She went back yesterday and he gave her a cortizone shot, plus the boot for another 6 weeks. She was in absolute agony last night, a 9 of 10. We're at wits end as to what to do here. The diagnosis is post tibular tendonitis. She has flat feet as well. She can never wear boots, high heels, etc.
This doctor told her to start wearing high heels as it would help her foot. However she tried that and the pain is too much. She has some inserts that were made a while back for her sneakers, but they don't help much either. Nothing works. We want to ride mountain bikes again, hike. However she can't walk hardly. She's 31 years old. Now her diet is crap. Mac and cheese, ketchup. I've got her to start eating organic. She wont drink the fresh apple/carrot juice I make. I keep telling her how important this is, but she wont listen. I've told her, anything in a box = dead is no good.
She's "ready to commit suicide" but she won't drink a glass of carrot juice?!?!?!
I'm sorry, but if she's serious about healing she has got to change her diet NOW.
Google anti-inflammation diet.
Her flat feet have nothing to do with it, and neither do her shoes. That's just mainstream medicine take-your-money BS. Obviously some shoes aren't right to wear for long periods but your doctors are arseholes, sorry to be so blunt.
At some point your wife injured a tendon or something and now her immune system is stuck at "on." Immune system response = swelling, pain, redness, and/or hotness. She needs to cool her immune system down. NO plant-based oils (e.g. corn oil). Cut way back on sugar. Zero white flour, especially at first. Yes to fish oil supplements, Co-Q 10, LOTS of Veggies -- LOTS.
I cured "arthritis" in my fingers this way. My diet was already pretty good so my experience might not be everyone's, but I noticed relief within 24 hours of starting my regime (which includes 2 glasses of fresh veggie juice a day btw).
Green magma is a powdered barley grass, another great immune system cooler, very easy to keep around & mix up a glass once or twice a day, especially during a crisis.
Buy your wife a copy of Louise Hay's book Heal Your Life. Hay says whenever someone comes to her in extreme pain she knows the client is carrying guilt. "Guilt seeks punishment, punishment needs pain." Your wife has some spiritual work to do as well, she can either step up and use this crisis for positive ends or live the rest of her life with this and worse -- because if she doesn't address the underlying spiritual, emotional, and physical basis of this crisis, even if the "doctors" "cure" this (or she amputates her foot) another issue will crop up to take its place.
Good luck -- it isn't going to be easy especially since she's apparently resisting your very good suggestions re diet -- but she has to realize that if she wants her foot to change, SHE has to change. No way around it.
ASTYM and Iontopheresis saved my life. I was ready to die when I went through this. The ASTYM and iontopheresis were done on the tendon which brought down the swelling which released the pinched nerves in the foot. The treatment didn't work when done to my feet, only the tibial tendon. After that I have been wearing a stabilizing shoe called tevasphere. I don't wear the expensive orthotics that the doctors insisted I needed. So sorry that anyone else has to go through this. It's he'll.
It's best to get to the root cause but for now instead of chemical injections try
my mother had TRAUMEEL injections to ease pain prior to having a full knee replacement.
Try to find someone that administers the injections
Unfortunately, my mothers doctor is in chicago but you can call him and ask him if he can refer you to someone in MA. His name is Dr. Mark Sobor 773-631-9420, he specializes in PAIN.
They sell Traumeel online but I don't think this is the dose your wife needs, she needs injections.
This is not a permaent soloution but it will temporarily relieve the pain for about 3 weeks at a time then she will need another injection, however, it will give her time to get to the "root cause" and eliminate the problem.
Attn: Mods.......i didn't mean to click the ALERT button I mean't to click the edit button........sorry!! Oops! :)
Sorry for late reply. Your wife is so young and it's bad that she has so much pain. Yes in agreement to the above post, these shots are not addressing the cause of all this. Has she always had flat feet? Could you give her some gentle foot massages? How is her dental health? Has she got fillings, root canals, had teeth taken out? I would say the answer lies in her being toxic as with most things. Her diet is making things worse but you sound like a good husband and I hoep she can see that she needs to change this. have a look on the moreless pages about a ph balanced diet. Ypu could make her delicious soups from all the alkalising foods with lots of herbs. She will need to cleanse her liver and kidneys and rid parasites. The sections I would look at are the barefoot, the moreless and any dental forums. Look at the Hulda Clark section of ailments, there is a section about the feet and acid build up. Good luck and keep us posted.
urine therapy made my frozen shoulder pain minimal. yes, i do have frozen shoulder even now (left shoulder pains from frozen shoulder) just massage old urine (4 days old on your frozen shoulder or take fresh / new urine --- then heat it and apply it there).
urine therapy (google it 143,000 web-pages) stabilized my mood to the extent that the doctor reduced my medication Tegretol to Zero. Every major hospital should know about urine therapy. Tell your doctor to study urine therapy on the internet.
And yes, my doctor has eliminated my mood stabilizer Tegretol ---- I am on the Johnson & Johnson Clinical trial for it.
I have used ultrasound for most of my tendonitis problems for my patients. I find they respond very well with regular frequent treatment. I often send them home with a home unit (like Sonic Relief). It's worth a try - but you'll have to do it frequently for chronic or long-term problems.
I dealt with this for over two years before I healed. I had posterior tibial tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, and a fracture. It went another year misdiagnosed-and I was super discouraged and depressed. My doc put me in a boot for 6 months, pt 3 times a week. Then after 6 months-brooks tennis shoes with the vasyli insoles. No barefeet, and that company also makes flip flops. I was limited to bike riding and swimming. I went to pt 3 times a week and did band exercises, ultra sound, and heat laser. After another 6 months of this- which was jan-i could go a full day without zinging, shooting pain, paralyzing hurt, and cramping. Ive lost 60 pounds and I only walk and lift weights. Im 35 And Although my foot gets a little zingy when it rains-i can live with that. I hope your wife will stop with cortisone and the rest. It is only going to make it worse in the long run. My pt, who specialized in teendons-said he was glad I didnt do those things bc ppl feel better but they end up over using their foot and aggravating the issue , not helping it. Round rock orthopedic saved my life.
