Swollen node treatment

Post by Sh9289 » Tue Feb 23, 2021 9:40 pm

Noticed a swollen node behind the penal area of show barrow. I have a video I can share but I don’t know how on here. How do we treat it?

Surgically remove them if they aren't too big. Once the swelling gets too big surgery is not nearly as an attractive option. We've had some success increasing blood flow in the area with magna wave and therapeutic laser. In between sessions we'll use dilute thermaflex or another liniment in the area.
I'm not suggesting we can eliminate them with PEMF but lot of time success is having them stay the same size rather than getting larger.
