"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.READ MORE COMMENTS
"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."READ MORE COMMENTS

"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."Read Patient's Full Story
