I’m trying my best to avoid sounding like one of those annoying, anonymous actors on TV commercials promoting some new drug treatment. “This stuff changed my life! Call your doctor right now!” And in hushed tones: “Some possible side effects may include … you die.”
Maybe that’s what people think about me when I go on and on about my experience with cold-laser therapy to treat my pesky pains. But I can’t help but want to share it with people—it’s affordable, noninvasive, relaxing and, most important, it worked for me.
So here goes: I was never much interested in trying out a chiropractor, especially after watching my mom get her neck snapped week after week. It gave me the heebeegeebees every time. But when my mom told her chiropractor that I’d been having constant, aggravating lower-back pain for months, he said he had a solution for me. At the time I’d been squirming in chairs for months and pasting on Icy Hot patches because it was so awful to have to sit up.
