Re: back pain,elbows,arms, knees,hands,ears,head

I agree with Dr. Dave. To me it sounds like you have more of a sytemic problem. Meaning it affecting all your joints. If you had pain down the upper or lower extremity there are tests we can do to determine if indeed its a pinched nerve. Typically a pinched nerve will show a distinctive pattern. If you hurt all over, it could be a host of problems. What I would do is order an arthritic panal. Another consideration that I have diagnosed over the years, and is becoming more prominent today is Lymes disease. It typically has a dinstinctive rash that will accompany it (bullseye). Not saying you have this, just a thought. Seeing an internist or a good chiropractor for some lab work is a good idea regardless of what you other chiropractor found with his machine. by the way, those machines (surface emg, thermography) aren't very sensitive.

Silicone inserts leave the epicondyle pressure-free and provide an intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema.
