The arthritis in my foot and ankle has been getting worse making walking very painful. I have had injections that helped initially, but over time were less effective. I've been wearing a brace which helps some, but does not reduce the pain. My next option would be surgery. Dr. Shen recommended the laser therapy, although not covered by insurance. After 6 treatments I can say the pain has decreased greatly, making walking enjoyable again. I have chronic pain in my lower back due to arthritis and decided to try laser for that as well. After 6 treatments the pain has lessened significantly and I am hopeful that 4 more sessions will be even more helpful.
