I’m excited to bring this state-of-the-art technology to Grand Rapids because I’ve experienced first-hand the reality of living with pain. Pain can affect sleep and getting out of bed. Pain can make it difficult to focus. Pain can even dull an otherwise vibrant and energetic life. My wife, Karin, suffered from pain for two years following her knee replacement…
…her pain was debilitating.
Being an osteopathic physician, I know that recovery from knee surgery is a long road. Recovery involves not just healing, but rehabilitation and physical therapy. Yet, after five months of diligent physical therapy, Karin’s pain did not improve. She was prescribed medicine, but it upset her stomach and she felt like her head was in a fog. She didn’t like to take it, so she didn’t.
Karin has always been an active person. Biking on Mackinac Island during the Lilac Festival has always been one of our favorite activities; however, following her knee surgery, riding bikes beneath the blooming lilacs was not an option. Karin was still in constant pain.
That all changed when a friend recommended that she try therapeutic, Class IV Laser treatment. Our friend suffered from chronic pain due to arthritis and shared that laser therapy significantly improved her symptoms. So, Karin decided to take our friend’s advice.
After just a few treatments, Karin’s pain decreased dramatically. Eight treatments later, her pain was at bay and her swelling was significantly less. After two years of daily pain, it took only three weeks to become pain free. Why had we not tried this laser therapy sooner?
This is why we founded BrightWave Pain Therapy. We provide therapeutic, Class IV Laser treatments to others—offering them powerful relief from chronic and acute pain. It’s scientifically proven and it works.
