I have had a recurring knee injury since 1998. While physical therapy and other exercises helped periodically, there was always lingering pain. I am a dance teacher and live a very active lifestyle. Living with chronic knee pain had just become an inconvenient and painful thing I thought I would have to deal with forever.
I had been coming to Simpson Chiropractic Center for about a year when Dr. Simpson suggested laser therapy for my knee. I had never used laser therapy, but at that point I would have tried anything short of surgery.
I can only call the result miraculous. Within the first two days of my first session I could feel the pain dulling until it left altogether. I would absolutely recommend laser therapy for chronic or lasting pain.
I don’t wake up sore anymore. I can start my day immediately without having to wait for my knee to warm-up!
I was having numbness in my left leg around and below my knee. The skin would tingle and feel different then the skin on the rest of my leg and body. Dr. Simpson talked to me about laser treatment, and I decided to try it out. After one treatment, I could tell my leg and skin felt more normal. After the second treatment over the next few days, the feeling in my leg went back to normal. At this point (about 8 months later), the feeling in my leg is normal. Chiropractic adjustments also have helped my back and the muscles around my back so that they don’t limit my activities like they used to.
During the Fall of 2009, I was diagnosed with a lateral meniscus tear to the left knee. After numerous painful shots and months of physical therapy I noticed that I still had some pain and stiffness remaining in the knee. After beginning chiropractic care, Dr. Simpson recommended that I give laser therapy a try on my knee. I received four laser treatments and noticed after one session I was able to bend my knee without any pain at all. It has been very exciting to experience this form of treatment which was painless and to know how well laser therapy has worked for me.
Having a long history of knee pain that resulted from basketball injuries, falls, and wear related to aging, I was a prime candidate for knee replacement surgery. That is when I discovered and read the laser therapy literature available in Dr. Simpson’s office and began to ask a lot of questions. The more I found out the more I became very encouraged and wanted to give laser therapy a try.
In January of 2010 I had on differing days 5 treatments on my right knee which was the most painful knee. The laser treatments were absolutely painless and took about 20 to 30 minutes. I often experienced soothing warmth during treatments in my knee. The pain was considerably minimized, and days later I realized that for the first time in years my knee was pain free.
Since my first experience of laser therapy in January on my right knee, I have been pain free and look forward to having my other knee treated in time. With this first success, it is without a doubt that I recommend laser therapy to anyone experiencing chronic and acute pain. I have found this to be an amazing, safe and effective therapy that is well worth the investment to anyone wanting to improve the quality of their life.
My name is Shirley Moon. I have been coming to Dr. Simpson for about two years. I was having problems with my back at the time of my visit to his office. I can truly say my back is better. I still get adjusted every three weeks to maintain the progress I have made.
About six months ago I was going down some stairs and my knee felt like it was going to come out of place. I jerked it back and from then on my knee swelled and hurt very bad. I then went to see an orthopedic doctor who drew fluid from my knee. It was very painful to have that done and it did help some but I still could not bend my leg without it hurting.
Dr. Simpson told me about Laser treatment and asked if I would like to try it. On October 19th, 2009 I had my first treatment; I could tell it helped my knee tremendously. I cleaned carpet the very next day! It was still hurting some but I was so amazed at how much better it felt. As of this day November 3rd, 2009 I have had four Laser treatments. I will go back on the 5th of November for my final treatment. I truly recommend the Laser to anyone that wants to enjoy life and to be more active. It has saved me a lot of money and took away a lot of pain.
Thank you Dr. Simpson for introducing me to the Laser and for all you have done for me over these past two years.
