My thought is...if it works, use it.

Although I am fortunate not to have developed CTS, I suffer from
epicondylitis (commonly known as "tennis elbow"). I went through twelve
weeks of the "standard" medically acceptable form of physical therapy. This
included stretching and gradually increasing weight bearing exercises.
After three months of therapy and $1200 it just made the condition worse.
I even tried chiropractic adjustments and electrical stimulation to no

At this point, if an additional $20 for a copper bracelet could alleviate my
symptoms, I'm willing to try it...even if it's not "acceptable".
