Helped with Shingles pain.
My name is Anita and I would like to thank Johnson Chiropractic for helping to relieve my pain and irritation from Shingles.
On October 17th, 2011 I developed an itchy rash that started on my stomach. By October 18th and 19th it had spread to my left side and back and I also had pain on my left side. I thought the rash was from poison ivy and the pain was due to me playing volleyball the night before. I waited until October 21st to go see a doctor. My doctor said that I had Shingles and that I was a day too late to start Anti-viral medications to help them go away quickly. I would have to wait possibly 2 weeks or more for the pain and irritation of the Shingles to go away. I had heard from other people that the pain from Shingles can last for a long time. My mother contacted Johnson Chiropractic office to see if there was anything Dr.Johnson could do to help me at this time. Karen said that they were offering a new program called Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy. I came in for an appointment on October 27th for the 1st part of a 2 part Cold Laser Therapy for Shingles. I returned on November 1st for the second treatment. By the end of the week the pain was gone and there is no lasting effect of the Shingles. I highly recommend the Cold Laser Therapy treatments, they certainly work for me.
