Is there a doctor in the house? HAHA...Sprained my thumb when I slipped on ice a month ago and it's still sore. Heard that you should ice a sprain right after the injury but what do you do weeks after that to speed healing? Can't swing a club and I'm getting the itch.

This, actually, works. Also, avoid, "natural" foods, as you rob yourself of chemicals that reduce inflmation and heal pain.

Yes, I have been treated using prolotherapy for several years for various ailments. My first encounter was for golfer's elbow, and after two treatments , it has never reocurred. I also received treatment for a sore thumb last year, and, although the pain is not completely gone, it is not a factor while playing golf. It has also been very effective for both knees, which were seriously injured when I was younger and stupidly playing football instead of golf.

I have also had treatments for herniated and bulging discs in my lumbar and thoracic regions of my back, as well as in the SI joint. I can play golf regularly with injury respites only every now and then, but I would say, the results have been less conclusive for the back. But for the elbow and thumb, I would highly recommend you give it a shot.

Steve

No booze just pure water and organic fruit! You can be a fruitarian and live for many decades longer then you would otherwise.
