“The pain was so bad, I didn’t think I could take it anymore. I was at my wit’s end!”
So said Cheryl Greenawalt of the excruciating foot and lower-leg neuropathy she’d been battling for nearly a decade and a half. The burning. The numbness. The “pins and needles” sensation.
“After a bad reaction to taking an antibiotic in 2003, I’d been stuck with this condition,” explained Greenawalt, 64. “There was no way to get comfortable. From the bottom of my feet to the middle of my calves, I was in constant pain.”
Desperate for relief after years of fruitless searching, she saw an ad for Laser Medica which listed neuropathy as one of the conditions that their super-pulsed laser light therapy could help to improve.
“I figured, I have to try because nothing else has worked.” After being examined by Dr. Joseph Costello, DC, DABCO, Greenawalt agreed to undergo Dr. Costello’s recommended protocol: a series of 18, one-hour treatments spaced over as many weeks as she liked.
“I was so desperate that I decided to do six treatments a week for three straight weeks. By the fourth treatment, I really began to feel an improvement,” Greenawalt said. “And by the time I got to the 16th treatment, the pain was completely gone. I was amazed! It was the best I’d felt in years!”
These days, she maintains her miraculous results with a periodic one-hour treatment every few months. And thus Greenawalt has joined the tens of thousands of other Laser Medica patients who have been relieved of their chronic pain via painless, non-invasive therapy that Greenawalt described as “like being in a spa for an hour.”
What is laser therapy?
Laser therapy is a medical procedure that uses highly focused laser light energy to treat pain and inflammation. It works at the cellular level by stimulating the body’s natural healing processes. This highly advanced technology is successful in treating both acute and chronic conditions which traditional treatment approaches have failed to remedy.
This includes, but is not limited to arthritis, back pain, disc herniation, headaches, knee and hip pain, neck pain, peripheral nerve disorders, neuropathy, sciatica, shingles, spinal stenosis and temporomandibular joint dysfunctions.
Since its FDA clearance, more than a million patients have received the non-invasive treatment — and there has never been a reported side effect. Many patients report feeling pain relief within a few minutes of the treatment.
The lasers used at Laser Medica are classified as an “actinotherapy,” which means they can cause a chemical and metabolic change in human tissue. Simply put, that means the lasers accelerate the healing potential of each and every cell with which they come into contact. As Dr. Costello explains, “Our treatment protocols actually heal human tissue. They can achieve results when other treatments fail.”
More traditional options will always be there, but effective treatment without drugs, surgery and the accompanying side effects is an incredible option for anyone suffering needless pain.
