Hi Mary
I had a friend with the same thing for two years. She tried acupuncture-which handled the pain but not the injury, and the straps. Her Doc told her he almost wishes he could get away with putting a cast on people with it. He said "For most, the injury is nagging more than debilitating so they don't protect it adequately and as a result set up a cycle of re-injury and inflammation. I can't get it through their heads that it requires rest." I thought that a great explanation for the years long-yet totally unnecessary healing process, that fit me to a tee.

Looks likes a busy dojo, thanks for the link. Do you know what style or history it has? It isn't mentioned on the site.
This is a bit off topic, neh? And I guess I'm noticing because of how vigilant you're being in protecting the propriety of the thread you started in General Topics. A similar respect would be appreciated here. Thanks.
