A couple of years ago, Sandy started to notice some odd bone growths in a few of her knuckles. The growths generally didn’t cause her much discomfort.
About a year or so after her discovery, those once painless bumps started to cause her a great deal of finger pain, eventually to the point where it began to affect her daily activities. Opening jars and doors, using keys, and holding her tennis racket became increasingly difficult.
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 had heard about Cold Laser Therapy offered at Solaj, and decided it was time she make an appointment to have her finger pain assessed. Sandy’s finger joints appeared swollen and red, she had lost full range of motion, and her left and right index fingers were very tender to touch. I explained to her that her finger pain was likely due to arthritis in her fingers, and after discussing how Cold Laser Therapy would help her, Sandy decided to immediately start treatment on both of her hands.
Finger Pain Treated with Cold Laser Therapy
I recommended twelve Cold Laser Therapy treatments for Sandy (about 30 minutes each) over the course of a month. To her pleasant surprise, Sandy started to experience improvements immediately. After the 1st treatment, she noticed that the joint swelling she had for so long had reduced in her left hand. After her 3rd treatment, she had more range of motion in both of her index fingers and was experiencing less finger pain. After her 4th treatment, she felt good enough to try playing tennis again. Over her next few treatments, Sandy felt that holding her racket was far less painful and that she was able to play tennis without much difficulty. After her 9th treatment, she was no longer experiencing finger pain in her right hand and decided to stop treatment in that hand. And after her 12th treatment, she felt that the finger pain in the left hand had improved so much that she could stop treatment altogether.
