How To Reduce Inflammation
Less Really Is Better!

This is How to Reduce Inflammation if you have a Carpal Tunnel or Tendonitis repetitive strain injury.

If you have either or both of the above, then you have the INFLAMMATION and PAIN that is part of the Pain Causing Dynamic.

Inflammation can be caused by in impact injury, a repetitive strain injury, an accident at work, a pulled muscle, Tendonitis, etc. For all intents and purposes, inflammation from one is the same as inflammation from the other.

The same methods that reduce inflammation from one kind of injury reduce it from other kinds of injury.


Can You Reduce And Eliminate Inflammation?

Yes, you can.

Do you REALLY want to know how to reduce inflammation?

wrist tendonitis inflammation

Yes you do.

Did you know that you can effectively stop the inflammation process? Even stubborn, chronic inflammation.

Inflammation has it benefits, but in my experience, you heal much better and faster without it, or at least with it minimized such that you get all the benefits without any of the negatives.

This page not only contains information about How to reduce inflammation but also the Why it works.

You are probably in pain now and if you knew how to get out of pain, you already would have. Tendon inflammation from Tendonitis can cause chronic, and debilitating pain. This is why you want to learn how to reduce inflammation.

I must warn you. Inflammation reduction is an art -and- a science.

You need to learn what works, and then experiment with how it works best for -you- and your exact situation.

This website, and this page specifically, is exactly the resource you need if you have any kind of Tendonitis and want to become pain free, and stay that way.


-----

See:  What Is Tendonitis to fully understand how and why inflammation is related to Tendonitis

-----


If you learn how to reduce inflammation you will not only feel less pain, you will actually HAVE less pain.

Which is great....

But more importantly, you will not only learn how to reduce inflammation, you will discover how to STOP the Inflammation Process that is a major part of the Pain Causing Dynamic.


"I'm a guitar/bass player and had recently been suffering from a pretty debilitating (and quite frankly, frightening) case of tendonitis, and your methods have already eliminated more of the pain in just a few days than any other method I've tried."

William
Long Beach


"Just wanted to say thank you very much. My husband ice dipped about six months ago and is doing just fine. I had cortisone shots in my wrists and they are starting to hurt again. I am ice dipping now, what a difference."


"There is no better inflammation reducer than what you will find on this page."

The first stage of reversing your Tendonitis and/or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is to reduce the Process of Inflammation you have going on.

This is vital to getting you out of pain now, and keeping you out of pain later.

There is nothing fancy about How To Reduce Inflammation. On the surface it is very, very simple. Don't discount it because of that.

Try what I suggest, exactly as I suggest that you do it, then make up your mind.

At the bottom of this page is a short explanation as to how this works.

You will notice that I do not suggest Anti-inflammatory Medicine or Corticosteroid shots. In my professional opinion, they can be effective in the very short term, but do not counter and certainly can not end the pain causing inflammation process.

Nor do they beneficially affect your structure so they can't stop or reverse the Downward Spiral of pain and tightness. My practice consists almost entirely of people with chronic inflammation. And the reason it's chronic inflammation is because all the usual methods just aren't the right tool for the job of getting rid of it.

Have you been on anti-inflammatories for long periods of time? Still hurt? Still have inflammation?

"Thanks for posting this information, especially on the Dixie cup idea. It helped me nearly immediately (next day) from ulnar impingement from keyboard/mouse use. It also seems to be helping a friend with long-term ulnar and other tendonitis problems, who has been living on NSAIDs for a long time."

Stan T.


"The ice dipping eliminated the pain and numbness at night after only two days. What a relief! I still continued to ice dip."

Melissa, motorcycle rider with clutch pain


If I'm going to try an inflammation reducer, I want the best inflammation reducer. And that means the most results for the smallest amount of time and effort.

Below you will find a short 'Do This' description for each of the various kinds of Tendonitis. I'm not going to talk a lot about each one, I'm just going to tell you what to do if you have...



If You Have Achilles Tendonitis How To Reduce Inflammation


How to Reduce Inflammation if you have Achilles Tendonitis:

ICE MASSAGE

This is your primary anti-inflammation treatment.

1. Buy some Dixie Cups. Fill them with water and freeze them in a freezer.

2. At least 4 times a day, pull out a Dixie Cup and tear off the top half inch or so.

3. Ice Massage the most painful part of the muscle/Achilles tendon with the ice cube in the Dixie Cup.

4. For a minimum of 5 minutes (at least 4 times per day), push the ice into the painful area. Up and down the painful parts. (Keep it moving, don't just let the ice sit in one spot.) In a sense, you want to gently grind on anything that hurts, and everything connected to it.

If your skin gets numb from the cold, it's time to stop. You don't have to work it that long, but depending on how much real estate you have to cover to ice massage your injury, this might take you 5 minutes or more.

Cold is very effective. It is even more effective when you 'push' the cold deeper into your structure.

It is even MORE effective when you gently rub cold 'into' an injured structure.

How do you know you're at the right spot? Keep pressing and rubbing around. You'll KNOW when you're on it.....

You are likely to find a very specific, sharply painful 'hot spot'.

WARNING!: It can take up to 2, 3, or 4 days to feel benefit. There is a lot going on in your structure, it can take a while for all that to reverse. At a certain point, you will turn a corner and feel great benefit.

And make sure that you work the actual tendon(s) to reduce tendon inflammation.

ICE PACK

This is a secondary treatment to add in before and/or after Ice Massage.

1. Get an ice pack as big and as heavy as you can find. This can be an ice pack, a frozen gel pack, or a giant pack of frozen corn.

(I don't suggest frozen peas as they start to smell like....well...peas as they thaw.)

2. Center the heavy icepack on the painful tendon. Arrange the ice pack so it covers as much of your flesh as possible.

3. Let it stay on for 10-15 minutes. You can strap it to your lower leg/ankle if it is necessary to move around, that's fine.

Do this at least once sometime before ice massaging and once relatively soon after.

Always wait at least 10-15 minutes between taking ice off and putting it back on.

You can do this throughout the day, too. Ice is your friend. The more you do, the better you will feel.

I urge you to treat this as a serious experiment for 7 days. Not only will it make me look good, but your Achilles will feel amazingly better if you do this -exactly- for a week.

Feel free to email me with questions, comments, etc.

If You Have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
How To Reduce Inflammation

How to Reduce Inflammation if you have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome:

ICE DIP

a.k.a. Super Icing!

1. Find a (kitchen) sink.

2. Fill it up with water and ice and/or frozen water bottles.

3. Repeatedly over a two hour period, dip your entire hand and forearms into an Ice Dip in your sink for 5-10 seconds. 5-10 seconds ONLY.

Repeat this a minimum of 10 times, while you're making dinner, when a commercial comes on, between chores, etc.


Carpal Tunnel Symptoms can be caused by B-6 deficiency.

Which gets really interesting when you take into account that Inflammation Causes Vitamin B6 Deficiency.

Sometimes it's a question of which came first, the chicken or the egg? Inflammation first or pain first or B6 deficiency first?

Who cares? Make sure your B6 is up to snuff, Ice Dip, and see what happens.

There's a few factors involved in knowing how to reduce inflammation. Inflammation chemical, nutritional deficiency, etc.

You want the CUMULATIVE effect of Ice Dipping over and over.

Just your forearm, not your whole body like this guy in the picture. (Although that would be very very good for you!)

I urge you to treat this as a serious experiment for 7 days. Not only will it make me look good, but your hands/wrists/forearms will feel amazingly better if you do this for a week.

WARNING!: It can take up to 2, 3, or 4 days to feel benefit. There is a lot going on in your structure, it can take a while for all that to reverse. At a certain point, you will turn a corner and feel great benefit.

"I have been suffering from severe pain in my left thumb for about two years now.  the pain tends to strike me about 2-4 times a year and leaves me utterly disabled for approximately 2 months at a time...Probably the hardest part to dealing with this pain is that I cannot hold my children when I am affected by it.

Four days ago I re-injured my thumb...I stumbled upon your website...After 3 hours of reading I made myself an ice dip and tried it.  Today is day 3 of ice dipping and I am 100% pain free, not only has the pain disappeared but I have full mobility of my thumb.  I can move it freely without any tightness or restriction!  Thank you so much for everything that you have done, you have given me one of the greatest gifts a person can receive.  I can  hold my children again and for that I am grateful."

"Just a quick message to say a massive thankyou for the information you have provided on this website.  I injured my arm above the wrist (muscle sprain) while kayaking and for the first week doctors said to use ibuprofen gel and tablets which didn't really work.  Did some research and stumbled upon your website and decided to give the ice massage a go.  I could not believe how quickly it started to work adn the pain was reduced by over half in the first day!.  I am continuing to use the ice massage and have recommended it to friends as well.  Many thanks."

WHY Does Icing
Reduce Inflammation?

How To Reduce Inflammation -- Do you know how to reduce inflammation now?

After learning How to reduce inflammation, many people wonder Why icing works.

The HOW to reduce inflammation is using ice/cold in a particular manner.

The WHY is valuable to know also.

There is a very simple explanation, even though the actual mechanism is very, very complex.

Do keep in mind that knowing how to reduce inflammation is more important than knowing why.

In this situation, DOING the activities makes the difference.

Knowing why and how without taking action will leave you in pain.

Like the rest of the information I've put on this site, my hope is that knowing why, having a complete picture, will help you make the best decisions for your health.


How To Reduce Inflammation - Why It Works

The Three Most Important Factors for How To Reduce Inflammation:

1. Throughout your body you have arteries that pump blood everywhere.

2. Every little bit of muscle has a small amount of muscle surrounding the tube.

3. Cold makes muscle contract.

Imagine for a moment that your tissue is a living sponge.

When you put cold on your skin, or dip a body part in water that is cold as ice, it causes muscle to contract.

The sponge literally squeezes itself, wringing old fluid out.

So let's say that you have Tendonitis. This means that your muscles are a half squeezed sponge, trapping waste product in and keeping new blood and nutrition out.

Like a regular sponge, lack of fluid causes it to become dry and crunchy.

Waste product and pain enhancing chemical get trapped and continue to cause you pain.

When you Super Ice or Ice Massage, the cold forces the sponge to squeeze itself, pushing irritant out.

Then you take the cold off, and the body overcompensates and pushes in a lot of new blood, nutrition, and oxygen.

Not only does icing reduce pain by getting irritant out and new blood in, but changing the ecology of you tissue like that causes the nervous system to relax, loosen muscles, and allow more even more circulation.

Icing does not mask the pain like pain killers and anti-inflammatory drugs.

Icing actually helps your body heal itself at a deep structural level and if you do it enough can overwhelm the inflammation process.

Whereas surgery causes damage while it deals with a symptom, icing does no harm and helps heal the SOURCE of your pain.


How To Reduce Inflammation Caused By B6 Deficiency

If you noticed in the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome section above, I said that Inflammation Causes B6 deficiency. Understand that this creates a physical trap. Because B6 deficiency keeps pain and inflammation in place.

Chicken or the egg...doesn't matter. If you are B6 deficient caused by inflammation, or anything else, then you may not physically be able to reduce your inflammation process because you literally don't have the pieces of the parts necessary to stop the inflammatory process.

So even if your pain isn't called Carpal Tunney, there's no reason not to make sure that your B6 is up to snuff.


How To Reduce Inflammation of a Tendon

One thing to keep in mind with Tendonitis and specific tendon inflammation and using ice and cold as an inflammation reducer, is that an inflamed tendon is not a very squeezable sponge.

A muscle is very squeezeable and it's easy to get old fluid out and new fluid in. A tendon, however, is tough, dense, and, well....not very squeezable.

So if you are ice massaging, feel free to push that ice cube into that tendon. Force a squeeze. Force that cold deep into the tendon.

Chemical can get lodged deep in that very unsqueezable sponge. Force it out.

If you have an inflammed tendon and want to reduce pain, try this for at least a few days, and see what happens.


Now You Know How To Reduce Inflammation

And knowing how to reduce inflammation is a great place to start.

Practice.

Experiment.

Do it like your well being depends on it.

Learn how much or how little it takes to work for you and the activities you want to do.

Now that you know how to reduce inflammation, put it to work.

It takes a little time and attention, but it's free and one of your most effective options.

Knowing how to reduce inflammation isn't rocket science, but it's the cheapest and most effective method I know of.
