I came in with chronic shoulder pain that had been a problem for about 1 years. It had started after a bike accident. Over time I was less able to do things such as painting the house and lifting my arm over my head, lateral raises at the gym, side planks etc. I had already tried physical therapy, massage therapy, acupuncture, bought a TENS machine, anti-inflammatory medication, and of course lots of ice. As my knee improved, my shoulder started acting up. The physical therapist that I had been seeing recommended that I see a Sports Medicine Dr. and get a cortisone shot. I had already had one in my knee and it was not something that I wanted to do for my shoulder as I don't like needles and didn't like the idea of putting that into my body again. I had also been seeing a Fitness Consultant about my knee and she recommended that I try Laser Therapy. She had been getting laser treatments and saw some efficacy with the treatments and I trusted her enough to try it. After 17 treatments I am 80-85% of normal functioning. The laser treatments have viability for healing and I would recommend it to others because it is non-invasive, there are no drugs and it works.
