Quilt With Us

I was going to post this info just on the Fibro Girls group page, but thought that everyone might like to know about this. Anyone who sits for long periods of time, or who gardens, etc., usually develops tight, sore muscles in the neck, shoulders and back.
Since I suffer from fibromyalgia, I get trigger points (very painful knots in my muscles) all over my body.

My physical therapist told me about Theracane. She's been recommending them to many of her patients.
I got one, and am learning to use it. There's an owner's manual and a video available to help you learn how to work with it.
It's basically a self-massage tool. And, boy, does it help. For me, it may not completely replace a good physical therapist or massage therapist, but it really gets me through between sessions.

Here's the company's website: http://www.theracane.com/
You can find the Theracane at a variety of online stores at a discount from the suggested retail price, so do a little research. Still, it's only about $30. The video may be extra.
Let me know if you find it helpful! I'm going to post it on the Continuing Education group's page, too, under the Tools heading.

My PT is part of the Pain Center of Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio. Many larger medical centers are establishing similar departments or clinics. Maybe you can locate one near you.

Schatze - sure sounds beneficial for several applications. Where is your therapist? Connected with a physician, hospital or community center or ?? Just curious - would love to find a good one!!

Thanks Schatze for the tip. I have recently been on a hand quilting marathon and have developed an inflammed sciatic nerve, with pain all down my left leg....apparently from my sitting position while quilting in a Lazy Boy chair with my feet up. I am going to check out theracane.
