Hey Tracy, sorry it's taken so long to check my page on here ~ I've been so busy!! So your dog is great ~ is it a husky maybe even wolf mix?? Ours is a Bernese Mt. Dog. He's our second ~ they're great dogs! I hope you're staying busy out there in Chicago :))
You know, I'm sure you all ready checked into this but, I was afraid I was beginning to get carpal tunnel. I do a lot of transcription work in addition to school. went to my doctor, he gave me heavy-duty Naproxen and said that was all that could be done. surgery was the best option. I wore braces on both wrists, and they were sore even when I wasn't typing. Went to my chiropracter, he took x-rays, said my small bones were just rubbing together. put me on stim-therapy and did manipulations of my wrists two or three times a week for about a month, and now I just go back for monthly adjustments.
Haven't had to wear a brace since and have been pain-free. Although my wrists will get tender after about 30 to 45 days, a quick adjustment from my chiropracter, and I'm good as new again. I don't know if tendonitis can be helped by this therapy or not, but really, it might help it from getting worse by getting those small bones back into place, so they're not aggravating your tendons at all. Does that makes sense?
I'm just the type that always looks for preventative medicines instead of medicine patchwork medicine. I've also been anxious to try accupuncture, but my insurance doesn't cover it at this time.
