Stories from people who tried PhotoMed's therapy


Kristin overcame complex regional pain syndrome


Kristin had complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS or RSD) and was not expected to improve. It rendered her unable to function at her job as a nurse, and without enough energy to enjoy recreational time with her family.

With gratitude for PhotoMed's tools, Kristin could return to the career she loved and then some! She resumed her good life. To see a joyful video clip of her 12 years after her therapy worked to end her CRPS. (1:53)

“The pain was like somebody hitting me with a sledgehammer....

[Now], I have grandchildren and I play with them without limitations.” — Kristin


Jerry overcame chemotherapy-induced neuropathy


Jerry is a cancer survivor who had neuropathy in his feet that began after 2 years of chemotherapy. The neuropathy spread to his hands as well. For years he was in pain and lacked the energy and dexterity to do home projects with this family.

After trying PhotoMed's therapy, he experienced profound relief. Jerry was able to paint a room in his home and felt like he was back to being himself again. He also describes that protective temperature returned to his hands after his second visit. (2:56)

"There was no way that I was going to encounter painting a room..."

[Now}, I was more the way I used to be."



James post-surgical pain resolved - now he can play with his children

James tried to help a co-worker lift a heavy barrel. 3 surgeries left his back in great pain. He had “post-surgical” pain for 6 years. He sums up his experience, “if I knew what I know now, I would never have had any surgery at all”.

James received PhotoMed’s therapy during his first visit. He reported some pain relief that continued to his next visit, one week later.

During his 2nd visit, the numbness and his pain resolved during testing for mirror-neuron synesthesia. Monofilament testing confirmed that his sensation appeared to be back to normal.

10 weeks later, James describes the effects of medications on his life. (2:35)

Now I can play with my kids (6 and 8) they see him as their “new” dad.
