Wrist Tendonitis - Remaining Pain

by Adria Bonell-i-Rovira
(Larboc, Catalonia, Spain)

Hi Joshua,

After suffering disabling wrist pain for years, some weeks ago I decided to buy your Carpal Tunnel Treatment That Works DVD.

I cannot explain with words all the joy and gratefulness I felt when after a short week of doing the simple exercises my pain was almost gone.

Two weeks later it seemed a distant memory, and now I am able to do freely all kind of activities I had abandoned (e.g. weight lifting).

However, I still feel a small pain in the zone when I press it with one finger or when I wear my watch. What can I do to remove it permanently?

Thanks a lot,

Hello Adria.

GREAT! I'm so glad to hear that.

There is a lot I could say about that last bit, but I'll keep it simple.

1. Is the spot a general area, or is it a specific spot on a tendon? It won't affect the next two points, but it may have me add something else for you, so let me know.

2. Keep doing the activities from the DVD for another week, or two, or four. You can even drop the numbers some, but basically, the more you do, and the longer you do it, the more you help your body go back up the Upward Spiral.

That's great the pain is gone. You can always use the activities to reduce it again if it comes back. Keep in mind, you've been in pain a long time, so physically it's a little bit habitual and will try to come back.

Keep doing the activities even if there is little or no pain...there's a lot going on under the surface of your skin. Keep helping it be happy for a while and you'll be happy.

That may or may not take care of that spot.

3. I would also throw in some self massage. At this point, it doesn't matter -how- you do it, just get in there and rub around that ouch spot. Poke, prod, push the tissue like a stretch in different directions, squeeze, hit, etc.

Ultimately, like a sponge, squeeze old stuff out and new stuff in, and things get better.

I'm happy that you decreased so much pain. Perfect.

Now, most people would be satisfied with an acceptable level of pain and stop the self care. It sounds like you're motivated. Even better!

Keep at it for a while longer, pay attention, think about that spot like a sponge that needs to get filled with new good blood and nutrition, and see what happens.

If it's not any different in two weeks, let me know, and we'll see what to do about it.

PART 2 - The Spot - Wrist Tendonitis - Remaining Pain
by: Adria Bonell-i-Rovira

Hello Joshua,

You are right, I'm commited to make this pain go away completely since it's been bugging me for a long time. Thank you for all the extra tips. I'm going to apply them immediately.

The spot is about 1 inch long and a half inch wide along one tendon. I'll tell you about the results I get.



Joshua Comments:

I like your motivation!

Realistically, you can make it go away completely. And, eventually, you will notice it creeping back in.

Then you can either let it go till it gets worse again then do self care, or nip it in the bud with the same self care.

Let me know the results, and we'll go from there.

Part 3 - Wrist Pain Free - Wrist Tendonitis - Remaining Pain
by: Adria Bonell-i-Rovira

Hello again Joshua,

I am sorry for the delay of my response but there has been a lot going on in my life lately and I almost forgot about my wrist pain (good news I guess!).

As you told me I kept doing the activities from the DVD, although I decided to limit them to stretching because I found the cold water part a bit time consuming. Then I threw in some thorough self massage and the results have been awesome.

I am finally wrist pain free, exercising only 2-3 minutes every morning. Lately, I have even skip my stretching several days in a row, and focusing only in the massage for less than 1 minute works out fine also.

Your work is amazing and I will be recommending your materials to everyone I know.

Thank you and keep it up!

Hi Adria.

Great! It looks you have really learned the concept, and can now use the tools just as they are, tools to be use as/when needed.

Rock on!
