More than 5,000 patients, doctors and therapists have written to Medicare expressing overwhelmingly positive experiences with Anodyne Therapy and how it reduces pain and improves people's lives. Sample comments follow and others may be viewed on the Medicare website linked below.
"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 DOES 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
