Just read this to Mrs. Fuzz and she says after she sobers up from her 2 week binge she is going to go ask about this.  Some really good potential here if it works.

She told me it would be no cure to me as far as joint pain, so I guess I will continue to toke when required.   ;D

Joint pain...  Is that when the roach gets so short you burn your lip?

Seriously, does anyone know how blinking lights reduce pain.
Maybe I don't understand it, but I've seen the commercials and I thought it was some kind of medical scam.

That would be skin pain, not joint.   ;)

Joint pain would be like your fingers if you were trying to roll real tight ones for an extended camping trip.

That looks a little skeptical.....LOL!

I guess it's like most things in life, if it sounds too good to be true then it probably isn't.

Why is it stuff like this is priced at $599 bucks.  It's like gasoline, Thay say it costs $2.19.9, hell it costs $2.20 not $2.19 and this 'thing' costs $600 bucks, not $599 bucks.

Besides, I think it's phooey too.  The guy in the picture looks like a drummer to me.

I was ready to call this thing out for being the snake-oil I suspect it to be. So I looked and there are a lot of conflicting articles about the effectiveness of lasers as a treatment for pain. Some show positive results, others don't. So you can't say one way or another.

The placebo effect is very difficult to control for with pain management techniques, so the anecdotal reviews of this device are not very convincing to me. Add that laser light doesn't penetrate very deeply into human tissue, and I'm even more skeptical.

What this device needs is some really well designed double-blind studies. I think if it stood up to those, I would find their claims more believable.

The more I read, the more doubtful I become.
