We first met Sandy when she came to us with pain in her fingers. After successful Cold Laser therapy treatment on her fingers, Sandy had her calf treated after pulling a muscle in an area of previous surgery. While she was being treated for these conditions, she began to develop a sore shoulder (unrelated to the previous two issues).
A year after her treatment, Sandy sent Solaj a testimonial to share her experience with Cold Laser Therapy:
I first had treatment from Dr. Mel for my finger pain. I could no longer bend it and was quite painful. I decided to try cold laser therapy as I am not one to take medication.
Within a few treatments it started to feel better. Over the following weeks my finger kept improving. By the end of my treatments I had full mobility back, the swelling and pain was gone. That was over a year ago and I am happy to say my finger has never bothered me again!
I am an avid tennis player and since then Dr. Mel has treated my calf and shoulder and kept me playing the game I love! Success with both treatments! I am so grateful and happy that there is an alternative to medication that really works.
Sandy is a tennis enthusiast in her late 50s, who plays several games of tennis in a row, multiple times per week. She started to feel a sharp shooting/burning sensation on the outside of her shoulder. She was having difficulty dressing, doing simple stretches, and reaching behind her. The pain would gradually come on, typically throughout a tennis game. She didn’t wait very long to have her sore shoulder assessed; she only started to feel pain about 1-2 weeks prior.
During her assessment, it was clear that the pain originated from her deltoid muscle on the outside of her shoulder. It appeared to be a minor tear of the muscle, most likely from overuse.
Sandy’s Cold Laser Experience for a Sore Shoulder
Sandy completed 14 treatments for her sore shoulder. After her 1st treatment, Sandy felt it was easier to reach behind her without as much pain. At her 5th treatment, her range of motion was back to normal and she was experiencing pain with only a few different movements. After Sandy’s 9th treatment, she completed a few rounds of tennis over a weekend without any issues.At Sandy’s 14th treatment she mentioned that she was able to play tennis and do all activities without any shoulder pain. Sandy continued to come in for a few additional treatments before stopping altogether, to ensure that the issue was resolved as she increased her tennis playing time.
