Heat and icy hot gives me some relief, I was wondering about getting an ultrasonic with the gel. Not sure but I read reviews about Mendmeshop. Any advice and details would be appreciated. I also have sciatica which ultrasound might help too.

I had 2 rotator cuff surgeries and the insurance company wanted ultrasound tried before approving of surgery.

It did nothing for me.

Two surgeries for the same thing? My DR asked me if I have pain to want surgery and I said no. I just have discomfort and limited use but he said PT would help but I would never have full motion. Surgery doesn't guarantee anything either from what I read on here. Thanks for the reply!
