Lisa Adkins, Westmoreland Physical Therapy

"I work at a physical therapy clinic in West Virginia. In the past couple of years we have had numerous reports of success by the patients with the Anodyne Infrared Therapy. It is so upsetting to the patients whom are on a fixed income and cannot afford to get the home unit at the end of their treatment. This treatment D'OES WORK and I hope that you take this into consideration.

"I am disappointed in Medicare's limited coverage for Anodyne Therapy. There are numerous published studies supporting its efficacy. In additon to this, Anodyne has been effective for several of my patients. Some of the results have been near miraculous. I have witnessed first-hand patients being cured of chronic foot pain. I have seen return of sensation in people that have not felt their feet for years! I feel it is short-sighted not to understand how this will save Medicare in the future."

"In the home health agency that I work for, we see a very large number of patients diagnosed with diabetes. Many of these patients have diabetic peripheral neuropathy. We have utilized the Anodyne Infrared Therapy System combined with physical therapy in the majority of these patients. It is awesome to see these patients regain sensation, have a lower incidence of falls and decreased pain as well as balance improvement..."

"...I have been using Anodyne therapy for the past two years. I have found it to be very effective in peripheral neuropathy patients. They have been able to gain 75%-100% of their protective sensation back in their feet and improve balance to be safe with ambulation with out the risk of falls..."

Anodyne Therapy Helps Woman with Chemo-induced Neuropathy

"I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in September 2015 and started chemotherapy in October. In January 2016, I finished treatment and was referred to Touro’s Cancer Rehabilitation Program. After completing chemotherapy, I was in constant discomfort and developed chemo induced neuropathy. I had major pain in my heels and hips, which made it difficult to walk and stand. I could not stand up any longer than 10 minutes at a time. My therapist Alex recommended this new treatment called Anodyne Therapy to relieve pain in my heels. Anodyne Therapy worked to lessen the effects of the peripheral neuropathy. Thanks to Alex, the pain in my heels and hips has completely disappeared. Thanks to Anodyne, I was able to go back to work and start exercising again. Anodyne and the Cancer Rehab Program at Touro have allowed me to regain my quality of life."

I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how much your Anodyne machine has helped my husband over the last 2 years. Using the Anodyne machine every other day has made the difference in him being able to walk or just sitting in a chair and giving up. His physical therapist is the one that recommended the fine machine to him, and we are so glad that we bought one. We've been so pleased with the machine and the service you have offered us.

I have used Anodyne Therapy for over a year and a half. It has changed my life and my pain. Walking became painful, and a problem. At night the pain was dreadful, causing many sleepless and painful nights. After 2 weeks of treatment at the hospital, I noticed relief, and gradually, the night pain subsided. I call it the miracle of my life.

Due to the outstanding benefits of Anodyne Therapy, during my 8 weeks of treatment, I bought an Anodyne home unit. I could throw away my cane, but my wife wouldn't let me. Thanks to Anodyne, I can now walk anyplace I want without pain and drive in my car anyplace I want to go. I would recommend Anodyne to anyone who has pain in their legs and feet.

I have used the treatment in my home. The pain was so intense that I was sleeping 2 or 3 hours a night. After the first treatment I noticed improvement. At present, I am quite active for an 83 year old. I am still able to live alone in my own house, drive my car and live a fairly normal life. Your therapy is very important to me, and my quality of life is greatly improved.

I discovered Anodyne Therapy through a seminar that was advertised in the local newspaper. I can not stress the value of this system to my health. It was so difficult for me to walk without pain. After the first session, I could walk from the therapy center without my handicap. I continued the program to the end, and now I have my own home system. Pain is reduced tremendously, walking is made easier for daily chores because of the better blood circulation. Anodyne therapy has greatly improved the quality of life for me.

By happy accident, I discovered Anodyne Therapy a year ago - my doctors had never heard of it! My life has been profoundly affected by the constant pain requiring heavy duty pain killers, as well as the limitations on my activities. A year ago, I was able to try a 6 week program of Anodyne Therapy. To my amazement, there was a definite reduction of my pain level. As I progressed, I found much greater relief of my pain level, which has continued to this day. In summary, my life has improved significantly.

I am a 69 year old diabetic female who has suffered many years. My nights were nightmares, because my feet burned and tingled with pain. I was unable to sleep, and could not allow the sheets to touch my feet. I started my Anodyne Therapy in January 2005. I truly did not believe it would help me, but I reached the point of trying anything. After a month or so, I was able to sleep. Then I reached the point where the sheets could touch my feet without causing me so much pain. It is to me, almost a miracle.

I suffered extreme pain in both my feet and hands. The pain was unrelenting, as i tried to rub or walk the pain away. I called my endocrinologist who sent me to a physical therapy facility where I received Anodyne Therapy treatments. I found almost immediate and complete alleviation of the pain. I now use my home Anodyne Therapy treatments as a way to control the pain. Having a home unit is empowering because I know that I have a way to keep myself from this form of suffering.

I had 24 treatments administered by a doctor. I found much help during those treatments of 45 minutes each. She then applied for the home machine, and I was sent the machine. I use this machine every night for 45 minutes before I go to bed. I no longer have pain at night. Previously, I was constantly awakened by the pain and sometimes I was kept up for 2-3 hours. I have also gone off other medications. I can sincerely recommend this machine for pain management, and I am very gratefully for it. This machine is a godsend.

Testimonials from Healthcare Professionals

Associate Professor of Medicine, UCLA

REFERRING PHYSICIAN

"During my 27 years in practice, I have cared for thousands of patients suffering from painful circulatory problems caused by chronic conditions such as diabetes. When Anodyne Therapy is utilized as part of a comprehensive plan of care, I have seen significant improvements in my patients’ pain and their quality of life. Anodyne Therapy is the first treatment I have found that treats not just the symptoms, but also one of the underlying causes of the pain – poor microvascular blood flow. Anodyne Therapy has become a welcome adjunct to my therapeutic arsenal."

D. Smith PT, DHSc SCS, OCS, ATC/L

Physical Therapist

OUTPATIENT REHAB

"With over 35 years of experience in Private Practice, I began using Anodyne Therapy to help capture additional referrals from an entirely different physician group and patient population. I have seen dramatic results with not only diabetic patients, but those with balance disorders that go hand in hand with lower extremity pain. Anodyne has been an excellent physician and direct patient marketing tool for my practice.” 

Shayne Ferguson, PT, MHS, PhD, GCS, CWS

Physical Therapist (Louisville, KY)

OUTPATIENT REHAB

"With Part B Fee caps and managed care limiting the amount of revenue we can bill per patient, we knew we had to increase patient referral volume in order to thrive. After seeing the business and clinical results in our own patients, we decided to make a purchase. In a profession where results matter, we couldn’t afford not to have the Anodyne Therapy System available for our patients." 

Judy Bishop

CEO, Texas Home Health (Silsbee, TX)

HOME CARE

"We tried Anodyne Therapy because we wanted to differentiate ourselves while improving outcomes. The results – Anodyne benefited many of our patients, especially those with ambulation problems due to painful, circulatory problems in the extremities. After seeing the clinical results in our own patients, we decided to purchase 76 Anodyne Systems throughout our agencies."
