Maxine, a healthy and vibrant lady in her late 60’s, had been dealing with a constant ache in the knee for a month. It had started after she was gardening one day, crouched down for several hours at a time. She thought, like many of us do, that her pain would go away on it’s own. But in this case it didn’t. And it caused her to have difficulty sitting for any extended period of time, as well as driving. She even had to modify her exercise routine due to the knee pain.

When Maxine came to Solaj seeking Cold Laser Therapy treatment, her pain was located on the inner part of her knee, at times radiating down the inner lower leg. It was a constant, dull ache. When Doctor Mel assessed her knee, she noticed there was swelling in the knee and muscle stress tests elicited some discomfort. Further testing of the knee joint revealed that it was likely that Maxine was dealing with meniscus inflammation.
Cold Laser Therapy for Meniscus Inflammation PainMaxine started Cold Laser Therapy treatments immediately after the assessment. After just two treatments, she was already starting to feel better. She was able to do a bit of exercise, with less discomfort than before. Yet her knee was still somewhat sore in the evenings when she sat down to watch TV with her husband. However with further treatments, her knee continued to improve over the next couple of weeks. After 6 treatments, she was thrilled to report that the pain in her knee was gone. She was again able to exercise normally, sit for long periods, and tend to her garden without any issues. And after one final 7th treatment – just to be sure – she concluded her meniscus inflammation treatments with full healing success.
Since experiencing success with Cold Laser Therapy for the meniscus inflammation in her knee, Maxine returned to see us to treat different body part about a year later. And at that time she was happy to report that her knee continued to be pain free. To share her story with others, she sent us this nice note:
I damaged my knee while gardening. It was painful and activities such as squatting and kneeling were almost impossible to do. I saw an ad for Solaj Cold Laser Therapy and decided to try it. Six or eight treatments of cold laser treatment and no more pain. I have full range of motion of the knee.
This treatment really works, especially if done soon after the injury. I now know you do not have to live with pain and loss of mobility. I am 66 years old and know good mobility is an investment in a healthy active retirement.
