Football Injury

Our first string quarterback suffered an upper body injury and the trainer told us it would take 2-3 weeks to heal. I called my friend Lou Banas in to see if he could help, the kid was also most totally healed in three visits and performed without a problem that Saturday. Since then, I have seen similar results with other players and I have actually been treated for my own problems by Lou.

Alzheimers

Headaches | 18-year-old Student

I am a varsity football player for St. Josephs Institute in Buffalo. I play on both defense and offense (linebacker and fullback) so I am constantly being hit. I have been playing football since I was 5 years old but it wasn’t until the last two years that I have been suffering with terrible headaches from football and studying. My coach Mr. Troy suggested I visit Mr. Banas to see if he could help. After just two 12 minute treatments I am almost 100% better. Sometimes when I get hit I may have a headache for a few seconds but then it disappears! I am very grateful to Mr. Banas for his help as well as the rest of my teammates who he treated successfully when our trainer was having very little success.

83-year-old Dad with Dementia

My 83 year old dad had been going down hill for almost a year. Mr, Banas administered the Mini Memory test and scored a 10 which was very poor. After 6 treatments over a 30 day period he scored a 23! He is much more alert and functions much better with every day activities. We are delighted with the changes and plan on treating him once or twice a month as maintenance. Rhonda - Lockport, NY

Chronic Back Pain

Football Injury

I recently finished my fourth year at UB as fullback and was invited to participate in the Combine here at the University. I was suffering from a chronic hamstring injury for almost 6 months and in addition injured my shoulder lifting weights and was in pretty severe pain. I was making relatively limited progress with the trainer. I found Mr. Banas on the internet and he had a clinic near me. Over a three day period to my amazement, I was ready for the Combine. I informed my trainer of this treatment which should be in every training room in the country.

Arthritic Knee

Knee – Hip – Shoulder Pain

I first met Lou when he gave a presentation to our Buffalo Bills Alumni group. I had been suffering for years with arthritic knees which needed implants. However, Lou told me that he had an excellent chance of restoring my knees without surgery; so I thought I would give it a try. To my amazement after 5 treatments my knees felt young again, I told him it felt like they were padded. He also treated my shoulder which was the result of an injury with the Bills and for the first time in years I had relief without pain killers. He has now treated my hips which he diagnosed as bursitis, three treatments and I am significantly better. I told him if I was playing I would own one of these systems for myself and every professional athlete should have their own system.

PTSD & Chronic Pain

Concussion | 50-year-old Woman

William Stephan M.D. asked me to treat a patient with a concussion. Dr. Stephan is an primary care, alternative medicine physician who has been using the Theralase for over 4 years.

The patient fell down her stairs and hit her head. She had a contusion on her forehead the size of a half dollar. She has had a headache with a vas scale of 4-5 for the four days since the accident. I treated her top of her skull and Circle of Willis for 2:30 minutes at 50 power. (top of the skull was only place where she claimed headache) She came in for a follow up treatment 48 hours later and said her headache is barely a 1.

Her contusion was very sore and could not be touched. I used the triple probe for 4 minutes at 70 power, holding the probe one-half inch from the wound. Pain was significantly reduced immediately after the procedure and is pain free 48 hours later, swelling reduced by 30%.

4 years of Headaches

Post Herpetic Neuralgia (Shingles pain)

My name is Elsie Harris and about 14 years ago, I had a severe case of shingles on part of my face. Although the shingles healed, I was left with terrible facial pain which I would rate 8 out of 10 . I met Dr. Bansal, my Pain Management Doctor for a separate problem but I asked her about the laser for my face. She agreed we should try it. You must understand, I have been to several neurologists and even neuro-surgeons to try to eliminate my pain but they could recommend nothing. I am so happy to report that after my first treatment my pain was almost reduced 50% better! I did a total of 7 treatments with the cold laser and my pain level has diminished to 1 or a 2 ! I can sleep better and my quality of life is so much better. I would recommend this to everyone.

PTSD & Recurring Severe Chronic Depression

Erectile Dysfunction | 60-year-old Man

A 60-year-old man who is diabetic who was at least 70 pounds overweight needed a vacuum pump to gain an erection. He stated “it sometimes took 30 minutes to get to the point I could have relations… now it is no problem at all.”

Acute Anxiety

Sinusitis | 61-year-old Man

First off, you have to know that I am a skeptic . . . a very confirmed skeptic. I also have sinus problems.

In November of 2008, it got so bad, I made several trips to my physician, took prescription antibiotics and Symbicort so I could breathe. All caused by sinus drip that got so heavy it clogged my throat while sleeping caused painful and blood filled cough and drove me nuts.

This past November, my friend, Lou Banas, said to me “why don’t you try this light therapy on your sinus. I believe it will help you. “When it does, all I ask is that you tell people your story. What I can say after years of late and early winter sinusitis I have been breathing free and clear very single day for almost 4 years! This is something that should be investigated. I’m confident my sinus problems have been cured.

Severe Concussion

Headaches | 45-year-old Woman

My name is Monique Mcnaughton and I was injured 8 years ago at work driving a fork lift and was seriously jarred. I has two level fusions in my neck. I have had several years of physical therapy before and after the surgery with limited success for my headaches which was my chief complaint which I endured since 2001. After the second session of cold laser therapy, I noticed that the headache was diminished. After my 12 sessions of therapy, my headaches are rare( I used to have them 3-4 times per week). I can sleep better and now take my pain pills only when needed. In addition, my range of motion has increased by 80%. I am very happy; I was introduced to this new procedure. I am telling all my friends about it.
