8  months after surgical repair of a complete Achilles Tendon rupture I had significant scar tissue that had stopped improving/decreasing with other treatments.  At the recommendation of Melinda Couch, I began a series of 20 treatments with Low Intensity Light Therapy from Peak Performance Physical Therapy/Peak LiLT.  At the end of the 20 treatments, the scar tissue (aka my “Achilles bump”) had decreased significantly in size and mobility was greatly improved.  The strange tingling from the scar tissue interfering with nerve function was also gone.

Later that year, I developed a very scary tendinitis in my other Achilles Tendon and was terrified that it, too, would rupture.  I decided to try Low Intensity Light Therapy again for this new injury.  I was traveling, so I only had time for seven sessions.  However, the healing continued for the next few weeks after the treatments and the tendinitis resolved itself.  Whew!  Dodged that bullet!

If you are suffering from Achilles Tendinitis or had the misfortune of suffering a rupture, I highly recommend Low Intensity Light Therapy to stimulate your healing process.

Thank you Peak Performance Physical Therapy!
