Dr. Sekanick has treated my peripheral neuropathy since August 2015 with laser therapy. I have regained feeling in my hands and feet. I was told by my internal medicine doctor and a neurologist that the only treatment would be pain medication if I developed pain. I'm so glad that I saw the advertisement on television and came in for treatment.

My daily activities were hampered by not being able to get up and down stairs, walking with heaviness in my legs. Yes, I was concerned that this could be a problem for the rest of my life, because I am very active. I would walk 3 to 4 miles, 3 or 4 times a week. I also work part time.
Then, I read your AD in the State Journal. I have really enjoyed this kind of therapy. It has helped me a lot. I can get up and down easier and walk better. I have told people about this experience.
You people have been great. I couldn’t thank-you enough. Tina has been a great person to work with.

I have Peripheral Neuropathy from chemotherapy treatments. I’ve been going to a pain clinic once a month. I was trying to find an alternative to the drugs as they made me tired all of the time and I didn’t want to live my life that way. One day I was reading the paper, when I came across an ad in the paper for your clinic. I thought why not give it a try. I had nothing to lose.
The treatments have dramatically reduced the pain in my feet and hands. The staff has been wonderful and very supportive in helping me deal with my problem.

I’ve had very painful neuropathy for about 15 years. It’s always worst at night and there were many things I couldn’t do because of it. Sleeping was the worst- sometimes I didn’t sleep at all or could finally get to sleep around 4 or 5 in the morning –only to have to get up in 2 or 3 hours for my daily responsibilities.
I retired early from teaching because I couldn’t work day after day on no sleep or only a couple hours of sleep. I’ve been to a major medical clinic several times trying to get some help but to no avail. Even with all of the testing they did, they couldn’t come up with a reason for the neuropathy or any way to really help one. I even went through the pain clinic there– all they suggested after many attempts with different meds, including narcotics, was to have the Medtronic Neurostimulator implanted.
I’ve been to 3 other pain clinics and finally did have the Neurostimulator implanted, which did help some. I’ve done physical therapy and acupuncture for 6 months but still not enough relief to make it bearable. I did try an infrared bed for several months which did seem to help some so when I saw the ad in the newspaper in Sept for laser infrared therapy at Midwest Spine and Nerve Center I decided to try it.
I can’t believe what it has done for me. I’ve been having treatments 3 times a week for about 2 ½ months. My pain is much less now and I’m finally able to get some sleep. The color of my feet and legs is almost back to “normal”. I would highly recommend that anyone with painful neuropathy should try this therapy – it works! Many thanks to Dr. Sekanick for providing this therapy to me.

First I want to thank the doctors and Tina for finally giving me hope that my pain can go away. I had tried all kinds of treatment for my neuropathy from acupuncture to meditation… I was very sad and depressed because nothing worked. I took my medication each morning and night and felt like this was what I was going to do the rest of my life. I couldn’t believe that in this day and age pills were the only thing that could help. Then I saw Midwest Spine and Nerves’ AD in the paper and went for it. I am so happy that I did! I’ve been able to cut back on my medication and go for a number of days with very little pain. It’s so exciting and wonderful. I knew that my prayers had been answered. Thanks!
