How to defeat the ‘sports injury’ that just won’t go away

The Good Life Letter 

12th February 2017

I got a phone call in the week from a friend in a state of high excitement, “Ray, I’ve got a proper sports injury!”

Now before going further with this story there are a few things that you need to know.

First, that Mike is probably the least sporty person you could ever meet: in his world a strenuous workout is getting out of the chair to answer the front door.

This is not to say he doesn’t enjoy sport, but his participation is confined to what is on the telly rather than what he can build a sweat up doing. He is a fan of Newport County Football Club, but more for the fact that his neighbour takes him and he can have a pie in each half and a couple of pints at half-time.

Lastly, I have been friends with him since we were together doing ‘A’ levels in a local technical college, and I would class him as one of life’s most cheerful people ever.

So you might understand why my initial reaction to his call wasn’t one of surprise.

“I’ve got tennis elbow,” he trilled across the airwaves, “Doc Harris says that I need physio, pain relieving drugs and a special sports strap when I’m doing anything active.”

It was as if he had won a gold medal!

Over the course of the call I discovered that my dear friend had sustained an injury following a moment of weakness when he had decided to sand down a piece of old pine furniture and re-wax it.

The extensive period of rubbing and polishing had led to a repetitive strain injury that had aggravated the tendon insertions on the outside of the elbow and caused a considerable degree of pain.

Life wasn’t turning out to be plain sailing though, and his long-suffering wife clearly wasn’t offering the sympathy the old boy thought he deserved.

“I can barely raise my arm to drink a cup of tea and at night time it throbs away so that I don’t know where to put it to get any sleep,” Mike said. “Patsy is getting the hump because I keep rolling around trying to get comfortable, and she doesn’t sleep well on a normal night.”

I felt the need to offer assistance, at least in an attempt to save his poor wife from continued torture.

A friend in need...

One of the devices which I use regularly is my trusty PainSolv.

This is a piece of remarkable technology which uses Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Therapy (PEMT) to improve tissue healing and disrupt pain signals emanating from areas of damage.

Over the years I have come to rely on it to ease my aching arthritic knee and also offer it around to those in need – just like Mike.

So, I handed it over to him and wasn’t surprised when he called back in a few days’ time to say how much better his elbow felt, and asking whether I wanted to join him in a workout down the pub!

How could I refuse.

Over a quiet beer he explained how he had been sceptical about the little handheld device and what it could do for his badly aching limb, but that he had been ‘encouraged’ to give it a go by Patsy and much to his surprise had really begun to feel the benefit.

“Any chance I could keep it for a few more days to make sure I’m properly sorted?” he asked.

I replied that it was going to take around a fortnight for him to get the real benefit, and I have never seen a more relieved look on his face.

“I’ve stopped the pills and cancelled the physio,” he said, “although I wasn’t going to be able to see them until March anyway!”

Backed by science

The use of PEMT has been proven in many trials and has shown itself to be effective for conditions such as osteo-arthritis(1) as well as many other soft tissue conditions such as strains and muscle pulls.

In one study from 1994(2) the research team found that a series of double blind placebo randomised controlled trials proved that pulsed electromagnetic therapy really did improve the symptoms of knee osteoarthritis and even helped sufferers of whiplash injuries. In a more recent study(3) another group of researchers conclusively proved that this form of therapy produced improved results over conventional therapy and also led to a change in hormone and neurotransmitter function.

Clinical usage of this type of device seems to indicate that it often gets used when all other approaches have failed to provide relief, which seems nonsense to me.

I understand the role that exercise therapy, TENS machines and even pain relieving drugs can play, but why is a completely safe therapeutic approach such as PEMT only used as a last resort when the results are so positive?

It is a mystery, but based on my own experience and from the numerous positive reviews and comments I have heard from readers I would encourage anyone who has a chance to try it out to do so.

A major breakthrough in pain control

No-one likes the daily agony of muscle or joint pain.

However, the fact is that there is a way to deal with it safely, discreetly and effectively – and hundreds of satisfied people would urge you to do just that.

I have had so many people telling me that this clever device has radically change their lives, and all saying that they don’t regret taking the plunge and ordering a PainSolv device from our shop and that they have never looked back since... 

...or more importantly that they can now look back over their shoulder without fear of pain, which has to be a good thing!

I have collected together a whole series of their stories here so you don’t have to take my word for it – read what they have to say about their experiences and make your own decision.

Why is this device making so many headlines around the world? Here’s why:

-    A clinically proven 3-in-1 medical device that has been shown to dramatically reduce severity and frequency of pain.
-    A device that has been shown to be more effective and flexible in use than TENS, Ultrasound and EMS machines.
-    A revolutionary product that can help you with many different types of pain such as backache, sciatica, frozen shoulder, repetitive strain injury (RSI) joint injuries, sprains, muscular cramp, arthritis, sports injuries, circulation problems, knee pain, period pain, painful jaw, foot or heel pain.
-    Safe and effective to use over the site of prosthetic implants such as hip and knee replacements.
It really is remarkable what I have been hearing back from those who chose this device – maybe it is time that you took advantage of the 60 day home trial for yourself – what have you got to lose?

Especially as the VAT exemption rules still allow you to buy this device VAT free – find out how here.

Yours, as always
