    Ultrasound therapy for carpal & cubital tunnel sx?

    I've already had laproscopic surgery on both wrists and elbows for carpal and cubital tunnel syndrome. Relief only lasted a few months and now it is back. I attribute most of this due to me working on a computer 8 hours a day, not to mention coming home and going online.

    My doctor says when the pain gets bad enough, I can get an ulnar nerve transposition and an open release of my carpal tunnel. I really, really don't want to have more surgeries.

    I was exploring the possibility of purchasing a portable ultrasound machine and giving myself treatments but I don't know how effective it would be or what the long term effects are?

    Has anyone already tried ultrasound? Is it worth it?

    I have one that I got at an online auction site. It does help a little. I could feel it's effects more before I had this second surgery on my right hand. When I travelled and then came home and used it I could tell how much it made my hand feel good. I like to use my hot wax machine and then put my hands in an electric heating pad. That helps the most. When I do travel, I wet a washcloth and microwave it. Then I have to wait until the cloth is cooled down a little. I wrap my hands in it and it makes them feel good.
