Health Solutions Physical Medicine & Spinal Rehabilitation Doctors
Twenty years ago something happened to me that changed my life forever. Let me tell you my story:
“I remember it like it was yesterday. I’m in high school taking Tae Kwon Do, and getting pretty good. So good I was actually training to compete against other students in sparring competitions! Then, suddenly, my health falls apart. My knees begin to hurt badly- they actually started to “lock up.” Now I just knew something was wrong because my back and neck started to have pain as well. I went to see medical doctors who told me if I continued doing Tae Kwon Do I’ll eventually need knee surgery. They say the back and neck pain are just “normal.” All they could offer me were pain pills. I DECIDED AGAINST IT because I felt the pills would just cover up the pain and NOT FIX THE PROBLEM So here’s what happened next:
After facing having to stop doing what I love and having no other hope my mom finally convinces me to give her doctor a try. This doctor does a very thorough examination and gently ‘adjusts’ my spine and knees and has me do different stretches and exercises to address some issues I had with my posture. The adjustment doesn’t hurt, it actually feels good. I get relief, and soon, not only is my neck and back pain gone, but my knees no longer hurt, nor do they “lock up” anymore. Oh, did I mention that this doctor is a chiropractor? I do so well that I go on to get my Black Belt and compete at Madison Square Garden! Chiropractic works so well for me, and I’m so impressed with the other “miracles” I see in his office, that I eventually go to chiropractic school myself.” It’s strange how life is because now I’ve had another life changing moment.
Back in 2012, a colleague of mine living in Honolulu,Hawaii told me about Class IV Laser therapy and the great success he was having treating patients with it. Just as I was impressed with chiropractic I was even more impressed with the fast acting and long lasting pain relief patients were getting with this revolutionary treatment. The results were so great he was inspired to write a book about it. The book is titled The Laser’s Edge and is on sale now at all online book stores. His book is a must read for anyone with chronic pain and I’m sure anyone reading it will be able to relate to at least one of the 200 different patient testimonials. In fact, I was so inspired by the results he was getting in his office that I started treating MY patients with Class IV Laser, especially the ones that were just not responding to chiropractic or physical therapies. And wow, was I impressed with the results.
Several times a day patients thank me for helping them with their health problems. But I can’t really take the credit. My confession is that I’ve never healed anyone of anything. The photons in the laser stimulate cellular repair and regeneration which allows the body to heal. We get tremendous results, with zero side effects. It’s as simple as that! The laser is safe, cleared by the FDA and helps even the most severe cases of “bone on bone” arthritis. It’s strange how life is, because now people come to see me to treat their neck, back, and knee problems. Also since 2012 I have treated so many arthritic patients.
Here is a list of all the areas and conditions we have successfully treated with lasers:
Arthritic knees, low back, disc herniations, neck, hands, hips, ankles, numbness in hands, legs and feet. Leg cramps, “heavy” legs, stenosis, failed back surgery syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, ankylosing spondylitis and neuropathy, just to name a few.
