My story

Irina - irinka100@hotmail.com

I started to experience a lot of pain in my coccyx area right after I had my baby girl in January of 2001. I was in pain constantly and sometime it would get so bad that I would just cry. It got to the point where I couldn't sit for more that 10 minutes at a time. It interfered with everything I did daily - my life became all about talking care of this pain. I went to 9 different doctors, had 6 pain shots in 7 month period - and nothing - no results.

I was only 27 years old and for the past 3 years was living in constant pain until I heard about the doctor in Israel who treats patients with back problems (and many many more different problems) with computer-lasic therapy. I called and spoke to him, he told me to get all my MRIs, x-rays and labs and bring with me. So, I went to Israel and 10 day treatment. I came back a different person. Flight back was 12 hours and I was comfortable throughout the entire time.

Now I can sit for hours and not even think about my tailbone pain. I think he did a miracle because I was told by the doctors here that nothing can be done but surgery. The doctor's name is Dr Vladimir Gluzman. His contact info in Israel is: 04-8744566 or 067-635329. Try him. I would recommend this man to anyone who has serious problems.

Note from Jon Miles:

I couldn't find anything on the internet about computer-lasic therapy, so I asked Irina for more details. She replied:

There is only one clinic in USA in Houston, Texas who is starting to use computer-lasic therapy. Dr Gluzman is from Russia, where computer-lasic therapy is very developed and has been treating people who many different problems for years. He was one of the initial developers of the therapy and brought his machine to Israel with him.
