Cold Laser

Last week, doing who knows what, I probably overextend my bodies’ abilities on a daily basis, I tore some cartilage in my knee and was forced to hobble around like I had a peg leg.  We have a cold laser unit at our clinic and I decided to give it a try.  Go ahead and google what cold laser therapy is all about because I don’t want to get into it here, all I can say is that I went from being nervous about surgery to great relief (actually I made “he who must not be named” snap my picture without those scary green glasses so no one would mistake me for an alien.)  It seemed to reduce the inflammation and speed up healing so much so that within exactly one week I am no longer walking like a sea-captain.  I can still feel it, but it is oh so much better.  More importantly my family is happy because I no longer feel like a caged animal and can get my workouts in…(which is the best stress reliever I know of)  It was a happy ending to my week!
