Testimonial: G. LeRiche - Sciatic Pain

You will be interested to know that after 2.5 years of attempting to find relief from my sciatic pain problem, today I have NO pain. As you know, I had extensive chiropractic and physiotherapy treatment over the past 2 years.

What you may not be aware of is that I also had, deep needle (4" into intrinsic muscle) therapy with a chiropractor, acupuncture, nuclear scans, massage therapy, cortisone injections, CT scans, MRIs, stretching exercise programs and relaxation therapy. Nothing worked. I still suffered significantly from marked pain, particularly in the right gluteal area whenever I played golf or attempted to be physically active.

It was disrupting on the golf course and while I was performing my usual activities during the day. It even disrupted my sleep.

In August 2005, I was playing golf at Credit Valley Golf Club. Al Balding, longtime golf professional and a good friend of mine noticed a significant "lurch" during my swing. He asked why my swing looked so funny. I told him that I had shooting pains down the right leg. He went to his golf cart and gave me a business card for Dr. Fred Kahn.

Dr. Fred Kahn, M.D. is the pioneer in Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT). Al told me to go and see Fred the next morning at 8 a.m. I met with Fred who asked me a few questions. He then said, "from what I can see, you have spinal stenosis. We'll get an MRI next Friday morning at 6 a.m. --- it should confirm my diagnosis".

Notwithstanding the short wait for the MRI, I started on (LILT) immediately. Fred told me that my condition could be fixed with about 15 treatments. Naturally I was skeptical but went ahead anyway.

What follows is truly amazing! After three treatments, I could sleep through the night without pain. After 18 treatments, I had no evidence of pain whatsoever and was able to carry on with all activities. As I am a "being from Missouri type", I remained cautious and continued to have one treatment every two weeks. My 18th treatment was in January 2006.

I played the entire 2006 golf season without pain. As a side note, I sent Stu Hamilton, Ontario's best senior golfer, to see Dr. Kahn. Stu had taken a self-imposed sabbatical from competitive golf for a period of three years. After 10 treatments, Stu was free of pain, returned to competitive golf and won both provincial championships and came second in the Canadian Seniors.

My reason for sending this e-mail is to let you know of my success. Dr. Kahn has written several articles on the advantages of LILT and his thought process regarding pain. Dr. Kahn talks not of treating the pain but of treating the pathology. I recommend that you go to their website www.bioflexlaser.com and see for yourself.
