I discovered Cold Laser Therapy, now known as Photobiomodulation Therapy [PBM] a number of years ago after my own agonizingly painful injury to my lower back. Doing some benign routine exercises, I pulled a tiny muscle called the piriformis that had major pain impact.
For four months, I couldn't walk, stand or sit without extreme pain. Laying down was almost as uncomfortable, so my sleep was seriously impaired, too. I don't like to take medicine and frankly, pain killers didn't help. It was beyond challenging.
I was at my wits end. Nothing was working and I was exhausted and despairing. I put on my research hat and searched solutions to pain that were not addictive. As part of this effort, I consulted an old mentor who listened compassionately and educated me about Cold Laser Therapy. It seemed like a miracle. Within two weeks of treatment the pain subsided and was fully gone a couple of weeks later.
After so much discomfort, I was finally pain-free. I was so relieved that I became a certified practitioner and began to share it with my clients.
