I had recently developed ‘trigger finger’ which was not at first painful but which began to make my hand ache. The pain increased as it spread into the palm of my left hand. My palm was becoming slightly swollen and I was experiencing discomfort whilst driving. The treatment was explained to me and within 10 minutes of starting treatment I could feel a sensation along my left ring finger and my palm was less painful.
I have had intermittent bouts of pain in my right thumb for quite a long time but the pain was intensifying and I was finding holding items problematic. I had laser treatment for this condition and the pain eased rapidly and my thumb became more flexible.

The palm of my hand had lost its swelling and was no longer painful. My finger was still tingling but not at all painful. It was still slightly difficult to bend my finger.
My thumb remained flexible and pain free.

All pain and swelling had disappeared and I could form a fist with my fingers without the left ring finger locking in a bent position.
My thumb remained pain free. I took the opportunity to undertake tasks which involved gripping with my right hand.

I was able to do housework, gardening and drive easily. I did experience a slight ache in my left palm by the evening but this quickly eased with resting my hand.
My right thumb has begun to ache a little at its base but the intense pain has not returned. I have a second treatment booked as my right thumb had been causing a higher level of pain and as I am right handed it is difficult not to use it. I anticipate a fast response to the next laser treatment.
Having been a regular client of soft tissue therapy and recently of osteopathy I had no hesitation in booking for laser treatment on my hands. The immediate relief from aches and sharp pain was amazing. I had hoped for some relief and an increase in flexibility but the results from laser treatment was startling and there was no discomfort at all whilst I received the treatment!
