On Aug 13, 2016 I was riding my Downhill Mountain Bike at Fernie Alpine Resort. I missed the landing on a jump and flew over my handlebars. Luckily I was wearing head and neck protection but my back was scraped up pretty bad. The pain set on pretty quick, the sore was oozing and very uncomfortable to the touch. I have had a number of injuries like this in the past and I knew I was in for a month or two recovery.
I went into see Dr Nenshi the next week for an adjustment and she saw my injury right away and asked what happened. She suggested trying laser therapy on the injury.
I received Laser treatments on the 16th, 17th, and 18th, (see attached picture from the 19th) after just 3 visits the wound was mostly healed and was very itchy. I usually would not be at this stage of healing for a few weeks to a month. I received 3 more treatments on the 23rd, 24th, and 25th (Dr Nenshi has an after picture) and the wound was completely healed.
I was sceptical at first about the healing potential of a laser. I have no doubt about it after experiencing the healing power first hand. I had a bad abrasion healed in two weeks that would typically take me months.
If I ever have one of these injuries again I will be back to see Dr Nenshi ASAP!!!
