I swim, bike, run, hike, climb, and garden. I’ve delt with lower back pain due to spinal stenosis for years. Last December I fell really badly on a local trail. The result was ALL my back and abdominal muscles were torn, the sacrum was dislocated, and I probably had microfractures in the pelvis. Very debilitating for months. I tried massage and chiropractic care as well as all the PT exercises and it just wasn’t enough. The muscles just wouldn’t relax and it was very painful to do all the activities I love.What got me going to OrthoLazer was my neighbor. He had been dealing with similar back pain and he had degenerative disks. He had done all the research (FDA approved, equipment developed in Rochester, etc., type of treatment). So I thought why not try because I didn’t want to take the cortisone shots. Been there, done that. The shots not only didn’t work but they weakened my muscles.After my first visit I was thinking this wasn’t going to work. Then the 2nd day it was WOW that nerve still works! I’m almost done with my appointments and the lower back pain is mostly gone. I can now hike 7-8 miles with a backpack on again. And I can run without pain again. I’m training for a trip to Nepal to hike the Annapurna circuit route. Earlier this year, I didn’t think I’d be able to do it. Today I know I can do it thanks to OrthoLazer.The staff at OrthoLazer are friendly and knowledgeable about the process. Yes it’s expensive but so is PT and shots. But it’s worth it and it’s worth giving a less invasive treatment a try.
