My name is M. Nixon, and I live in Greeley, Colorado. In February, 2022, I started experiencing severe back pain. Over the next several months, it got progressively worse. I had great difficulty functioning on a day to day basis and I also had trouble sleeping. Every time I tried to turn or change positions, the sharp pain would wake me.
My family physician referred me to an orthopedic surgeon who referred me to a pain management clinic. Over a period of many months, I had a S1-J injection, two high frequency ablations and an epidural. I even tried dry needling from a chiropractor. The first ablation provided some minor relief, but I still had debilitating pain. None of the other medical procedures provided any help whatsoever.
My X-Rays and my MRI revealed many problems. Some of my discs and nerves are compressed, I have two bulging discs and I have severe arthritis in my lower back.
All of my non surgical options had been exhausted, so I then arranged an appointment at the office of a neurosurgeon in Ft. Collins where I was told that I need a surgical fusion and a laminectomy.
While I was trying to decide if I should have the surgery immediately or wait until after the holidays, I ran into Daren and Jason Suntych. Unbeknownst to me, Daren and Jason are brothers who have been working on light technology since 2008. They have 81 patents world wide on their technology. After they innocently asked me how I was doing, I spent several minutes telling them about all the issues with my back and the magnitude of the pain I was dealing with. After being kind enough and patient enough to listen to all my problems, they told me that they have a light they invented that might be able to help reduce my level of pain. The light that they subsequently gave me is designed to do two things; reduce or eliminate any inflammation in your body and increase your melatonin to help you sleep better.
Quite frankly, I was exceptionally skeptical. I couldn’t possibly imagine that a light could help to reduce my pain. I was desperate, however, and more than willing to try anything that might help.
After receiving the light I started using it for several hours on a daily basis. For the first two or three weeks, I was discouraged because I didn’t think the light was helping. Then, miraculously, in about the fourth week, my level of pain was much lower and more tolerable. From that point, going forward, it has continued to subside. I am still using the light on a daily basis and my level of pain is so low that I am no longer even considering surgery.
I am no longer able to play golf, which I used to do six days a week. Otherwise, however, I am functioning on a very normal basis. I live alone and am totally self-sufficient. The light can’t fix my very serious back problems, but it most definitely eliminated the vast majority of my pain. For that, I will be forever grateful.
