I am going to a Chiropractor now - 4 visits. I have tried all kinds of doctors including a Rheumatoid doctor which is the one that determined the polymyalgia rheumatica. I cannot tolerate the harsh/powerful meds he wanted to give me. The Chiro gives me a great massage and he told me I would feel tired and very sore after (which I DO). He also said it would take time. This last visit was very painful and I suffered for 5 days after instead of only 1 1/2 days. I know if I don't move and only sit or lay (which is all I do) I will only grow worse in time.
I don't know what myofascial release is???? What type of health care products; where do I get Traditional Chinese Medicine?????? I will ask the Chiro today when I go to him.
Thanks so much for your input. Any help is welcomed.
I just came home from visit to Chiropractor and I asked him about myofascial release. He said that is what I have been doing to you. So, I guess I am on the right path. He told me it will take many visits and I should drink lots of water. I am willing to hang in there even though he HURTS me a lot.
