As some of you know... I've been suffering with severe left shoulder pain and sometimes it hurt to pick up a cup full of coffee much less my bow. To avoid going to the Orthopedic surgeon, I've been seeing a Chiropractor buddy for some relief. This week he emphasized I need to talk with the surgeon, get an MRI and discuss surgical options. I told him NO WAY (again). So... he said he knew of a colleague downstate that has a cold laser and perhaps that may be the way to go before speaking with the surgeon. My chiropractor is even considering purchasing one - but would like to talk with a 'patient' before laying out 17 grand for one. So... I made an appointment to have cold laser therapy administered to my shoulder today. The chiropractor said I should be pretty much pain free in 3 to 5 visits - based on my flinches while he pushed, pulled and stretched my arm. The laser he used is a theraLASE unit. It is said to treat several conditions including: athletic injuries; disc problems; sciatica; knee pain (including ACL, Meniscus and MCL, LCL tears); rotator cuff tears; frozen shoulder; bicipital tendonitis; post surgical and fracture healing. The therapy does take a few treatment to fully fix certain problems (the longer a problem has been around the longer it takes to heal)... but it has a 96-98% success rate. I have a few more treatments to go, but I'm looking forward to hunting turkey with my compound bow this spring -vs- purchasing a crossbow. Anyone else have this administered or have any thoughts about it???
