INFORMATION AS GIVEN BY THE PATIENT (MARCH 2009)
I have had problems with my left knee and hips for many years. Every time I have been x-rayed the condition has been exacerbated and in the autumn of 2007 the general practictioner told me it was only a matter of time before I had to undergo surgery and be fitted with a hip prosthesis.
In August 2008 I began laser therapy (ECT) with Susanne Johansson who said she would like to try to improve the knee and hips by building up the cartilage and through this avoid the need for a major operation.
After regularly attending the ECT clinic to receive laser treatment, over eight months, both hips and my arthritic knee have improved. The way I feel now, there is no chance that I would consider an operation. My GP is amazed at the lack of pain. I also take 30-minute walks every day without any problems. Previously, every step was painful.
This feels good!! I will definitely continue with the laser. This works!!
