My grandparents often talked about their different ailments openly when I was a kid. I would chuckle when one or both of them would see a friend in a shop or on the street, who wanted to know how they were doing, and they would say things like “My hip is not too good,” or My sciatica is acting up again.” Then, all of them would form a group and discuss every little health ailment. Little did I know back then that I would have arthritis and many more things, leading me to need cold laser in South Surrey myself. I wish that my grandparents had been born in a time that would allow them to get help with their own arthritis, too.
I sometimes wonder what it would have been like to live 50 or 100 years ago when the medical community still had so much to learn compared to today. Did people just accept that many different types of help were not available or did they wish things weren’t so rough back then? My grandmother and grandfather never mentioned it, and I never heard them say that, one day, things would be really different in the future. Mostly, they got by with the help with pain relievers, which did not always work. This was especially true on days where the weather outside was cold and rainy.
I learned about cold laser from my doctor. He referred me to a clinic that does it. I thought it would feel very cold during the treatment, but it does not. I actually really liked it. I wondered how long it would be before it started lessening my chronic pain, and the answer is that there was definitely a noticeable change pretty quickly. That prompted me to keep up with my treatments, which have been very helpful.
