Re: Ultrasound Therapy

Charles. Sorry to hear your experience, but no, I did not have any flare-up, though I never really do from any type of therapy. With most things I just usually have a little improvement or no change at all. Ultrasound was the only thing that gave me very noticeable improvement, moments after finishi...

Re: Ultrasound Therapy

Jay pretty much nailed the safety issues there so all I really have to say is I've only been using mine once a week and have noticed good long term effects.

Re: Ultrasound Therapy

It's weird. From what I've experienced, typically from the minute I finish, for a few days, rock solid muscles that felt extremely tight, feel like jello and feel like it's getting proper circulation. After that, I do think it tightens back up to a degree because that's what it's used to but I treat...

Re: Ultrasound Therapy

I will get one for sure but perhaps this one would be a better choice since it has both 1mhz and 3 mhz and several other functions: http://cgi.ebay.com/New-Portable-Ultrasound-Ultra-Sonic-Pain-Relief-Therapy_W0QQitemZ200375220854QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item2ea74b3a76&_trksid=p328...

Yep, that looks like the same one, except I paid a little bit more :62_58_40:

Re: Ultrasound Therapy

I got mine off of ebay. And as webslave linked to, you can get them on Amazon too. That basically looks like mine except it looks like it has more options, which is probably why the higher price. I think they have some as low as $80 if you do some searching. I just sort of got excited and bought the...

Ultrasound Therapy

So it's been a while since I've made a post here... I've mainly been dealing with my symptoms and trying to get on with my life, but every now and then, I'll try something new. A couple of weeks ago, I read up on Ultrasound therapy and it's use in physical therapy and release of muscle spasm. I orde...

Re: Other problems since you got this one

A little while after it started, my right leg started twitching a lot for about a week. It really worried me, but then it just stopped. What a relief. I've had a few other odd things come up but none that really concerned me like that one did, and I can't really even think of them now...

Re: shaky hands? anxiety related?

I've had this for a while, way before CPPS was ever a concern for me. Even when I'm very relaxed I have a bit of it. I have a very difficult time holding a shot glass or a chip just dipped in salsa without it going everywhere if I'm around people...

Don't let it stop you. If anything, you are going to be able to better raise a child by teaching him or her something that should be taught in our public school systems, which is how to manage stress, and more specifically, how to do so without clenching their pelvic muscles. If you teach them this ...

My father was told he had an enlarged prostate in his early 30s. I always thought that was pretty strange. He had surgery to reduce symptoms which apparently didn't help and made things worse. Unfortunately, he passed before this came to me so I've never been able to discuss this with him. I don't b...

I asked my neurologist for this last week actually. I have a very tight external urethral sphincter, and this has done some good to reduce the muscle tone there in people with spinal cord injuries or MS.

I started a few days ago, and just take 10 mg in the evening.

This might sound ridiculous, (but we're already sticking our thumbs up our rears so what the hell :lol:) ....but has anybody ever tried using a vacuum on their abs? ....and by that, yes, I mean like a household vacuum cleaner to suck, pull, and loosen up the skin.

I've actually been thinking of ordering something similar to above for the sphincter. I thought sitting in a hot bath with one of them up there might be helpful. But goodness, the smallest one is 1" in diameter! My thumbs thickest part is only 3/4" and that's a struggle. But that's what leads me to ...

FSM - Frequency Specific Microcurrent

Sorry if this has been discussed (did a search but couldn't find anything). I was just wondering if anybody here has looked into or tried using this. It' s used to treat myofascial pain, reduce inflammation, soften scar tissue, etc. I was referred to it by David Simons, who uses a small home device ...
