shower vs kitchen stools

Question
Can a kitchen stool bought at a medical supply store also be used as a shower stool or are there differences and is a separate shower stool needed?

Answer

A shower chair is made out of light weight, mildew & rust resistant materials such as plastic and aluminum. It may also come with non slippery base for the legs.  A shower chair is designed to enable the water to seep through, without collecting on the seating area.  Additionally the chair may have adjustable seat height and may come in a size that would fit into a standard bathtub or shower.  Furthermore, it is not a good idea to use the same chair for standing and sitting on.  Ultimately, we would recommend investing in a shower chair.  We offer a large selection of bath chairs and stools. Ultimately, it is safer and healthier.

Vapocooler spray

Question
I have been diagnosed with myofascial pain in my shoulder. I've tried a lot of treatments. Nothing works. I've heard ethyl chloride spray is very good. What do you suggest and how do you use and store it?

Answer

Ethyl Chloride spray should provide you with temporary relief from pain in your shoulder.  To apply simply point the nozzle at the affected area and compress to spray.  Be careful to close your eyes and try not to enhale during the application process.  You may wish to wear safety glasses and a mask, or simply throw a towel over your face.  The product should be stored in a cool, dry location.
