I ski race, I am 73 years old, and I have been getting about three prolotherapy shots per year in my right knee for the last two years or so. Last March, my knee was getting a little sore and I had another month of racing left, but my doctor couldn't work me in until the end of April. So, while looking for another doctor on the internet, I came across Light Relief Light Therapy and I decided to give it a go. Presently, my knee is totally pain free after 6 months of off and on treatment, more so when I slept on it wrong. And now after three months of ski race training, my knee is totally pain free! Unfortunately, I damaged the left knee MCL from continued lateral movement of the knee while carving turns. That was 2 weeks ago, and after 2 or 3 light treatments per day, I skied today for the first time with out pain, although walking in my ski boots brought out slight pain in the ligament. I probably won't be running slalom gates for another week or two, but my return to skiing from a torn MCL in two weeks instead of six weeks by use of the infrared light therapy is very impressive.
