Is that the one who worked on your face? Maybe you'd have better results from eastern medicine, seeing as western medicine doesn't appear to be doing anything useful.

No. This one was just a masseur.
I have an appointment with the Chinese doctor who worked on my face on Friday - for accupuncture etc.
My normal doctor had no idea what to do, other than to take 6 panadol a day (which l did for a month, but it didn't help). Ibroprufen and voltarin help, but you cant live on them.
I shouldn't have left it so long and am hunting around until l find something that helps. Hot pool stretching seems good.

I have been contemplating a massage solution. But not sure I want to be seen walking into some of the massage shops around here.

Not all massages are remedial!

I suspect that depends on your definition of remediation.

More seriously, last lingering soft tissue injury I ended up at a respectable massage place. I was put off by the assumption I needed nice smells and soft lights and associated woo. No, I just need deep tissue massage suffering thanks. Please excuse any rude words I may utter.

Neil, check out Robert Degger, myotherapist. Very capable of inflicting pain and suffering.

This is going to sound weird, but is there any chance that Robert grew up in southern Adelaide and has an older brother Brian who's now an inventor in the UK...?

Possibly... Cardijin College? He doesn't mention a Brian in his FB profile though.

Yes - has to be the same guy! They have a sister Claire, too. I dated Brian for a couple of years during uni (after meeting at youth group) and introduced him to rogaining :)

Well, that's a coincidence!
I checked Robert's website and he might be my next port of call.
