Dear *****ient today laser therapy is much discussed, the benefits have actually been seen in early stages when there are only very mild sensitivity disorders,
Treatments using electrical nerve stimulation, magnetotherapy, and laser or light therapy may be helpful but require further study as their effectiveness has not yet been demonstrated.
If you are experiencing any neuropathic pain or symptoms of mild sensitivity changes I suggest you try it but I insist that today they are alternative therapies and that they are not being funded.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
