Sciatica Pain Relief
I came in on September 17th, and Dr. Hall adjusted me for my sciatica which was creating pain down my leg to my knee it felt like a bomb going off! I have had 7 laser treatments and with each one I keep improving, it has made a big difference in healing time. Now I am able to enjoy working in my garden again.
I am amazed how much better I feel! That laser is the ticket!

No Pain, No Wobble
The laser treatments are now taking effect on my sciatica. The treatments (2) combined up with staying off my feet seem to be nothing short of a miracle. I'm beginning to walk without the pain and the 'wobble'.

Cold Sore Treatment
While it may seem like a trivial matter, having a cold sore develop during the holidays is no laughing matter.
After a brief discussion with Dr. Hall about treatment of cold sores with Laser Therapy, when I woke up with a new cold sore, just a few days later, I knew exactly what to do. I called and made an appointment.
The doctor was able to treat me that same day and my cold sore was barely detectible afterwards. I was thrilled. The cold sore healed completely in just a few days but I experienced very little of the normal discomfort associated with one.
I was especially pleased because my cold sore didn't develop into an oozing festering mass and it did not scab over during the healing process. I had a tiny little bump on my lip that was very tolerable. Thank you Dr. Hall! This is one tip I will remember.

Diagnosed with Lyme, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Severe Joint Pain
I have had Lyme disease for 7 years. It has been very debilitating and has caused severe pain in my joints, 24/7, especially at night.
I was only diagnosed 18 months ago, and had been treated by Dr. Hall for a few years and he has helped with my low back pain and keeping alignment in order. I have restless leg syndrome also and interrupted night sleeping.
"Since the start of the Laser treatments my pain level in my knees has been tremendously reduced."
In July 2006 I started Laser Therapy at Dr. Hall's suggestion. 3 years ago I had a total knee replacement as Lyme disease causes joint degeneration. The other knee has been in terrible pain also. Since the start of the Laser treatments — of which I have had many — my pain level in my knees has been tremendously reduced.
My arm joints — could hardly lift my arms up — are now completely healed and functional. My night pain is so much better. My Lyme disease doctor supports this therapy and feels it has made a difference — I am into this new program!
I also wanted to say thank you to Dr. Hall for his genuine concern for his patients, his honesty and dedication to health care and his willingness to educate himself in being open to new treatments.

Fibromyalgia & Rheumatoid Arthritis
I am a 52-year-old wife, mother of 2 & grandmother of a 2-year old and a 6-month old. I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia some time ago. If you have the misfortune of being diagnosed with either one of these conditions, or as myself, both of these, you know the pain I went through day in and day out, 24/7, 365 days a year, was often almost unbearable.
Some days you can move a little more than others. Some days you can even smile, but most often it's a struggle to even think past the pain.
"I was no longer able to run and play with my precious grandchildren... It broke my heart! I cried a lot. I felt I had no control over my life anymore."
I would get up and go to work, barely making it through the day, just to go home and go to bed so I could get up and try to make it through another day of work. Life, honestly, was limited to just that. My work suffered, but I am fortunate to work for a very caring and understanding company. They brought in a recliner so I could lay down and rest on my lunch hour, which abled me to continue working.
The thing that broke my heart the most, was that I had lost the ability to do what matters most to me in this world, spending time with my grandchildren and my family.
I was no longer able to run and play with my precious grandchildren. They are the light of my life and couldn't understand why, "Mimi," (that is what they call me) didn't feel like playing anymore. They would come to see me, only to find that I was already asleep. It broke my heart! I cried a lot. I felt I had no control over my life anymore.
I have always been an outdoors person. Building fences, mowing the law cutting wood, etc. We did these things as a family. My husband, parents, children and grandchildren. It was very special to have all of us together doing things and a picnic, what more could you ask for?
But I could no longer do any of it.
I had a really bad spell a couple of weeks ago that had me getting out bed only to use the restroom, and I had to use a walker to do even that small task. My daughter was telling her mother-in-law about how bad I was and she told her about Dr. Hall and a laser procedure that was helping her and her mother. My daughter called me immediately. I, in turn, called Dr. Hall's office and they got me in the very next day.
"I worked on my flower beds. I cleaned my entire kitchen, I swept, mopped and vacuumed my floors."
I have to date had five visits with Dr. Hall and five Laser Treatments. Amazingly, over the weekend, I felt good enough to go for a walk with my grandchildren. I was able to sit and play cards with my parents. I worked on my flower beds. I cleaned my entire kitchen, I swept, mopped and vacuumed my floors. I know this doesn't sound like much to you, but to me, it is a miracle. It means I am getting back in control of my life, with Dr. Hall and his staff's help.
I almost cried, when I was outside with my little grandson and he looked into my eyes and said, "Mimi your body is feeling better huh?", with a great big smile on his face.
I have referred my mom, who has neuropathy in her feet, my brother, who has stenosis in the spine and my co-worker who has terrible pain in her neck, to Dr. Hall. My mom and brother have already had remarkable improvement after only two visits.
I can't say enough good things about the incredible health benefits I have experienced. It's turning my life around. I feel human again!!!

Step Lively - Foot and Ankle Relief
Dear Dr. Hall;
"After one treatment, the pain my feet and ankles was greatly reduced."
Early this year I began to have a terrible burning sensation in my feet and ankles which was limiting my ability to walk, especially after sitting or sleeping. Most morning it would take at least an hour to limber up enough so that I could walk freely around the house without support. I was very worried that I was becoming disabled.
My local doctor referred me to Dr. Andrew Hall of Summit Chiropractic in Sonora, who began low level laser therapy. After one treatment, the pain my feet and ankles was greatly reduced. Now after several treatments in a very short time, the stiffness in my feet and ankles and the painful burning sensation in my feet that I had for months is gone.
I am looking forward to future improvements in my good health by continuing treatments with Dr. Hall, his technicians and assistants.
Thank you Dr. Hall!

I am a 77-year-old patient of Dr. Hall, and taking Laser treatments on my knee. After the third treatment, I have seen relief in my knee and now I can say that I am almost pain free! I have cancelled my knee replacement surgery.
Thank you, Dr. Hall,

Steroid Treatments Ineffective
The Carpel Tunnel Syndrome I had been diagnosed with did not respond to the steroid treatments I had been given and now my only option was surgery. It was my desperate search for an alternative treatment that brought me to the office of Dr. Andrew K. Hall.
Here I was greeted by a wonderful, warm, caring staff and the assurance of Dr. Hall that, indeed there was hope for me in the form of "Cold Laser" treatments. I am most happy to report that we have had much success in the use of the "Cold Laser" and look forward to a continuing relationship with Dr. Hall and his staff.

Dealing With Knee Surgery
"I can't believe the difference laser therapy has made."
I had knee surgery about five years ago. My knee has never quite felt the same since. I've had laser therapy on it and it feels younger than it did before my accident and before the knee surgery. I can run, I can walk. Stairs have become so much easier to manage. I can't believe the difference laser therapy has made.

From a very happy client...
In regards to the laser treatment that I received on my left foot. I was experiencing swelling and numbness in three toes. After the first treatment the swelling subsided in my ankle and by the third treatment feelings were coming back into my toes.
One very happy client!

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Relief
I was diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) in 1991. I have had therapy for years without relief. Surgery was out of the question as the symptoms had changed.
The tips of my fingers have been numb since 1995. I had to quit bowling because I could not stand the pain of holding the ball. At night I slept with braces on my wrists, just so I could sleep. (In the hot summer nights, they would sweat and irritate the skin).
Then came the "Duke" of Chiropractic! On the first treatment, let me say this again... On the first treatment, I could feel the tips of my fingers on the right hand. The second treatment I could feel all the tips of my fingers! All I can say is... Doc hits what he aims at with his Laser and he gets results!
I am so grateful, that there is a man of his caliber wanting to help so many people with chronic pain. I think of all the time and money he has put into getting certified for his patients benefit and thank you is not enough!
He is the real deal...He is the "Duke" of the Chiropractic world!

Chronic Plantar Fascitis
I can't thank you enough for the Laser treatments on my foot. I went from a pain level of 8, down to a level of 1 after only 2 treatments! Now after my third treatment, I'm pain free. Now I am walking on my foot pain free!

Knee Injury Patient
I am amazed at the results I got from your new laser therapy. 2 years ago when I injured my knee it took weeks of therapy to get the results I got in just one treatment with your new laser this time. Within 20 minutes, the swelling and pain was almost gone, I was walking normally within 1 hour. I'm so impressed that I'm telling my friends and family about it. I'm glad you found this technology.
Thanks again and
God Bless You.

Chronic Pain from Repetitive Movement Patient
Dear Dr. Hall
I have had chronic pain in my thumb from constant keyboarding. I've tried ice, heat and exercise to alleviate the pain. Even the frequent adjustments you've done have only temporarily relieved the pain but it has always returned until now. Since the one laser treatment you administered to my thumb and the surrounding area I feel as though I've had a thumb transplant. Even with constant use, it gets a little tired but I've felt none of the pain I once had.
Thank you so much for providing this much needed therapy to our community. I can't begin to express how much I appreciate it.
