"This works for the smaller new pumps by minimed. They do not endorse it however. Wish that they would just make the pump waterproof in the first place. Their recommendation is to take it off when you swim. Makes it hard to enjoy snorkeling at…"
"I still use my sports guard case that I got back when I got my first Minimed pump. They no longer sell it, but it can still be purchased from other sources online. I just came back from vacation in Key West where I used it to go swimming and…"

"I have been using the Fisher Wallace Stimulator for about a week. I have noticed a difference starting today in terms of lifting my depression. It is the most inexpensive non-medication method for treating depression that I know of. It is hard to…"
Graston does work. I had surgery on my left hand for trigger thumb and then had the right released by a chiro. It takes a doctor that specializes in hands/feet but I'm proof that it does, in fact, work. Good luck in your treatment!…"
"Thanks for the info about your treatment for carpal tunnel. I don't have that, but I have trigger fingers and Dupuytren's contracture. I have had some Graston. Maybe time to try it again. Thanks again!Zazzle"
I'm sorry it took so long for me to reply. I have not been on here for a while, I'm afraid. I am back at my chiro's receiving carpal tunnel treatments. Currently, he feels for any snapping in my wrists and then corrects.…"
"Can you tell me what technique your chiro used and who you went to? I have been dealing with trigger fingers on both hands. I had surgery finally on 2 fingers and my thumb on my left hand. Even with hand therapy, I still have a lot of stiffness and…"
"I completed my 15th treatment with Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation on Friday. I have 15 treatments to go (5 days a week for 6 weeks total). It is amazing how much better I feel already. I am so glad that it is working for me since it does not work…"
"I am very hopeful about the TMS treatment. It is easy to find info about it online. My doctor is in Berkeley. Only psychiatrists are allowed to do this treatment. It is only approved for major depression, but is being studied for brain injury,…"
Graston does work. I had surgery on my left hand for trigger thumb and then had the right released by a chiro. It takes a doctor that specializes in hands/feet but I'm proof that it does, in fact, work. Good luck in your treatment! It is frustrating when you have trouble getting results.
I'm sorry it took so long for me to reply. I have not been on here for a while, I'm afraid. I am back at my chiro's receiving carpal tunnel treatments. Currently, he feels for any snapping in my wrists and then corrects. Then, he does a procedure called Graston (??) technique. It is not the most comfortable but is better than surgery. I have had it done twice and have noticeable improvement. He says 2-4 more treatments (both wrists) and I will be back to normal. If you can go without surgery, do so! It does work. The last time I had carpal tunnel was 6-8 yrs ago. I wish you the best! I live in Maine and since you're on the other coast you most likely won't be seeing my doc. If you come to my beautiful state, though, I will put in a good word for you.
