Stan, I’d like to bring @jenniferhunter into this discussion. She’s written extensively about her experience and knowledge of Myofascial Release Therapy. I wonder if that might be a non-invasive option for you to investigate.

Are your orthopaedic specialist and oncologist in communication with one another? Has it been confirmed that you do not have bone métastases?

@stantallusa Myofascial release is non invasive because it is just stretching tissue. However, if a person has cancer, stretching tissue can release cancer cells, so that would be a time not to use it. All surgeries create fascial scar tissue which gets tight and can cause pain. There is also a device called a Dolphin Neurostimulator which can release knotted muscles by passing a current through it. It has settings to dampen neurotransmitters and my PT used one on my spine at the nerve roots to lessen pain and spasms while I was waiting for spine surgery which stopped pain for about a week. What is your status with your oncologist?
The Dolphin can also be used like dry needling (which releases stored electric energy in muscle knots), but without the needles. It can send currents between 2 devices or on device and an electrode. Here is a link which shows what it is. https://www.dolphinmps.com/dolphin-neurostim-2/

Had a bone scan. Found no cancer anywhere at that point
