It has been around for a few years, but now a treatment for poor circulation is available in Wilmington. Two months ago Donnie Davis did not think she would be able to walk, clean, or cook today.
She had severe blood clots in her legs and nothing helped. Surgeons told her she would lose her leg because all the other surgeries and methods didn’t work. Then she found out about Anodyne Infrared Therapy.
Sue McConnell is a physical therapist that uses Anodyne Therapy as a healing tool. She describes the unit as a heat modality that puts a light source into the body and it penetrates about six inches deep and causes increase circulation and decrease pain.
Davis says, “I was actually in tears because I was seeing hope. Maybe I would keep my leg. My daughter had told me, 'mom you had better accept the fact you're going to lose you leg' and I said I can't do that." After two months of using Anodyne Therapy doctors are telling Davis she will not have to lose her leg.
The treatment is described as being painless and simple. McConnell says, "you set the intensity depending on the patient tolerance and it just stays on and penetrates about six inches deep and it increases circulation and the increased circulation is what heals.” The increased circulation helped heal Donnie, now she can go back to the activities that she loves.
