I am 63 years old... my doctor sent me for a C.T. scan of Lumbar Spine. The results showed degenerative disc disease, paracentral disc bulges, vacuum disc phenomena and anterior osteopyte formation. The answer for this chronic pain was to control the pain with medication. I was no longer able to do house work, volunteer at the local hospital and had difficulty playing my piano… It broke my heart! I decided to give laser treatments a try - I felt no discomfort during the treatment. After thirteen treatments I have gotten back control of my life without chronic pain medication. Since returning home I attend aqua fitness at the local YMCA three times a week, attending to my duties as a volunteer, playing my piano at home and at our local church and I assist my husband with house work... It’s turning my life around. I feel human again!
HEAL FASTER, NATURALLY
When you’ve tried everything else, or want to make sure that you are doing everything you can to get and stay healthy, Laser Therapy is an amazing supplement to any treatment plan. Laser therapy provides drug-free pain relief, speeds the healing process after an injury, and restarts the healing process for chronic injuries.
Laser is at the centre of our office - our medical professionals can add it to their plans. Physiotherapy in particular is a service that is perfectly complimented by use of Laser Therapy- - it’s a perfect pairing of drug-free pain relief treatments.
Laser Therapy is our “secret weapon” and advantage. Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT) is the use of red and infrared light to enhance the body’s natural healing process.
