Quite a number of years prior to visiting Solaj, David started experiencing increasingly sore knees. A pain that affected his ability to run. His doctor suggested surgery on his knees to remove debris from behind his kneecaps that may have been the cause of his pain. So David went through with the procedure, in the hopes that it would reduce the pain from his sore knees.
Email from David:
“I have had problems with my knees for at least the past 20 years. After years of running high mileage weeks and the marching of time they started to give me problems. I kept reducing my running frequency and distance down to once per week, then I had to quit running altogether.
In the last few years I have been using the services of a personal trainer and had been working on strengthen the muscles that support the knees. Still to no real effect.
A few months ago I went to Solaj, and within a few sessions of the Cold Laser Therapy my knees started to feel better. I went a couple of times a week for seven weeks. After that I started running again, starting slowly and short distances, building it up to where I’m now running 3 times per week and my distances have increased as well.
Also, lately I’ve changed my training methods and I’m convinced that the Cold Laser treatments were the catalyst to the change. After long periods in my car and after my gym workouts, I am able to walk without any signs of stiffness or instability. I’m contemplating running a 10k in the new year and my goal is under 50 minutes for the distance. This doesn’t sound like an accomplishment for someone who used to be much faster, but for someone who couldn’t run at all it’s wonderful.
I can highly recommend Cold Laser Therapy for anyone who has overuse injuries.”
Unfortunately, the surgery didn’t put an end to his knee pain. Eventually it became just too much to bear, so he reduced his running. But to stay active, while also reducing the stress on his knees, he took up cycling and fitness training. However, even with these lower impact activities, David found that his knees were sore no matter what activity he did. He always had pain, but just toughed it out, assuming that this was just the way it was going to be.
When David came into Solaj, he was very skeptical. He had heard about Cold Laser Therapy from his personal trainer and was encouraged to give it a try. He told us that all he wanted to do was, to be able to run freely, without pain. Having tried many other therapies without meaningful and lasting success, he had an understandably difficult time believing that this laser therapy thing would be any different. But still – if his personal trainer was right – the upside of stopping the pain in his knee was considerable, so he decided to give Cold Laser Therapy a chance.
Treating Painfully Sore Knees with Cold Laser Therapy
After the first 3 treatments, David started to notice slightly less pain in his sore knees. Although it was subtle, it was a step in the right direction, encouraging him to continue with the therapy. After 6 treatments, his initial skepticism turned into real hope, as he was running with almost no pain and noticed that the remaining pain would subside much sooner after exercising than before. He also found that his knees were not as sore as they used to be during his personal training sessions, and with much reduced pain levels, physical activity just seemed easier.
After 13 treatments over a 7 week period, hope had turned to happy satisfaction and David was able to end his treatments, because he was back to running and exercising without painfully sore knees.
