Hi I am Jeffrey Z., 57 years old, a plumber and I have Lyme disease. I’m a patient of Dr. Chris Turnpaugh at Turnpaugh Health and wellness. I contracted Lyme disease somewhere in 2008 and have had a bunch of health issues since then. The issue with Lyme is that it can attack my joints usually attaching my knee joints first. I have had issues with my joints with my knees being the worst. Over the years I have had Cortisone shots Synvisc shots which would provide short-term relief
I then started to have PRP injections were blood is drawn from your body spun out in the plasma separated from the platelets during doing this would give longer relief around November 2019 both knees started to get very sore I had trouble getting down on my knees even with a gel filled knee pads some days I would have to take a break and go home to get off my knees due to the pain I had both of my knees injected with PRP between December 2019 in January 2020 with little success during an appointment with Dr. Turnpaugh he informed me they were looking into getting a pulse bed which uses electric current to pass through your body I decided I should give it a shot when the bed arrived I actually met the factory representative who had brought the pulse unit into the office she left me try a portable unit on my right me for 30 minutes I was amazed that it helped me be able to get more range . Movement out of my knee. Shelley called me at the end of January and we scheduled a pulse bed for the first week of March 2020. I started using the bed twice a week for four weeks after the second time I started to notice that my knees were less painful and my body felt better overall. Shelley and I talked and got a game plan together where I would use the bed twice a week then use the bed once a week and see how I felt I also had an issue with my left shoulder. The pain was so bad it hindered me to the point I was having trouble working. When using the pulse Bed, Shelley put a portable pad onto my shoulder along with being on the pulse Matt. They put the pad on my shoulder after two sessions to complain the pain completely disappeared in the shoulder and then layered the pad on both my knees Each session I kept feeling better and better. Less pain in my knees I’ve been going for eight weeks and my knees have never felt this good in years. The pulse bed has given me a new lease on life. I can get up and down bending my knees with no issues. I would recommend trying the top part mat to anyone. It is amazing what it can do for you.
