Ankle | The Laser Cure

By: The Laser Cure  09-12-2011

I happened to be doing a favor for a friend back in September of this year, delivering a package to a business on the same floor as The Laser Cure. It was impossible to miss the brochure posted in the elevator. When I read that Low Intensity Laser Therapy is used in treating tendonitis, I was intrigued. After delivering my parcel, I ventured through the door and made an appointment for later that same day.

I had been suffering from tendonitis in my ankle for several months, my pronated foot having stretched the tendon on the inside of my ankle. i had, at that point, recently been fitted with orthotics, which helped with my plantar fasciitis, but I was still in a lot of pain. Even though I worked at a desk, by the end of each day I was in agony. My entire ankle and part of my foot would be swollen, with the inside portion of the ankle unbearable even to touch. All I wanted to do was put my feet up. I often limped because of the pain.

After only two treatments, I noticed a difference and felt so much better.  the following weekend, I had a set-back when I tripped and fell doing some outside clean-up work at the cottage.  After that, the pain worsened.  My doctor made an appointment for me with an ankle and foot specialist here in Brampton, but when I found out it was going to be a two month wait, I was quite discouraged.  I didn’t know how I was going to get through until then.  Although I had been taking Advil over the course of the summer for pain and inflammation, I had stopped September and had not desire to resume taking it again.

I purchased an over-the-counter ankle splint and continued with the L.I.L.T. treatments.

Over the course of the next ten treatments, the swelling completely disappeared and the pain gradually lessened to the point where I was not longer completely focused on it.

I completed my treatments about a month ago, and my life has returned to normal.  I still wear the splint and orthotics, but my activities no longer revolve around how much pain I may be feeling at any given time.

I kept my appointment with the ankle and foot specialist, and he told me to just keep on doing what I’d been doing.  The tendon was not torn as I had feared.

I would recommend The Laser Cure to anyone dealing with any kind of chronic pain.  Elizabeth Slonchka is a very competent technician.  Her sense of humor and sympathetic nature always made me feel comfortable.  She really understood, and cared about, how much pain I was in.

Debilitating Pain | The Laser Cure

I was unloading material from the truck when my foot slipped from the grease and there was no step where I was coming down. Four years 1 month and 6 days the pain has finally gone away with low intensity laser therapy. I was told the pain and swelling would eventually go away within a year. My knee banged the back plate of the truck and cut my tendons off. By the 3-4 treatments I noticed a significant difference.

Degenerative Disc | The Laser Cure

I have less aches and stiffness in the morning since being treated with low intensity laser therapy.Elizabeth is a wonderful Laser Therapist. I am 83 years old and after only 5 treatments the pain has relieved so much that I am not using my walker as much. I suffer from degenerative disc disease, osteoarthritis, and a severe compression fracture of my L2 vertebra. When I started taking the low intensity laser therapy I was in so much pain.

Elbow | The Laser Cure

I hope it will help them reduce their pain and increase there quality of life like it did for me. When I started the low intensity laser therapy I limped and was not able to walk up the stairs. I have pain in my right knee, right elbow, right hand and swelling in both left ankles. All of these cause me to suffer a lot of pain and limit my ability to get things done.

Smoking Cessation | The Laser Cure

With the laser treatment solving the withdrawal symptoms, and my refusal to light up again, I am heading toward a smoke free future, and proud of my new direction. After a thirty year addiction to nicotine, and the belief I could not quit, what I thought impossible became a reality. Thank you Laser Cure for all your help.
