"I'm from Poulsbo, Wa. I've been coming to Dr. Polzin at the Bellevue Pain Institute since December 2011. I actually started coming before that. In October we brought my father who had extreme neuropathy, and while he was undergoing his treatments I would watch the variety of treatments that Dr. Polzin offered not just for neuropathy, but for a variety of back issues. I've been dealing with low back problems for probably 30 years and about 5 years ago I started experiencing Sciatica. I tried two series of Physical Therapy, which helped to some extent. Then my feet started giving me problems and a foot orthopedist diagnosed me with a neuroma which gave me a lumpy feeling in the bottom of my feet. So we added special orthotics which not only improved some of my back issues but allowed me to walk. I was limited, though, to only two pairs of shoes. Tennis shoes and slippers. So after watching the treatments here with Dr. Polzin, I asked him to evaluate me. He diagnosed me and offered a series of lowback decompression followed by deep laser therapy. We started with a series of 30 treatments initially and during that time my back improved significantly but my feet did not. So during one of my follow up re-evaluations, we discussed the improvement in my back but the neuroma in my feet still provided issues for me. So, Dr. Polzin recommended that I try the neuropathy circuit, which I started and have greatly improved. I'm beginning to wear other shoes, shoes that I haven't been able to wear for over 6 years! When I started here, on a hard floor without orthotics I was walking on the sides of my feet. On my left foot now I can walk without any discomfort from the neuroma. My right side, where I had all the Sciatica, the neuroma is probably 60% improved. So, if you have any issues like this, and you don't mind taking the ferry from Poulsbo, please feel free to come to the Bellevue Pain Institute!"

"I came to Dr. Polzin because I've had neuropathy for 4 to 5 years. I was amazed at how quickly I started getting some relief and rejuvenation in my feet and legs. I guess the most outstanding thing was that I packed about 5 treatments into 7 days to start with because I had a trip planned and we were going to go around the Olympic peninsula. While I was on that trip, after only 5 treatments I was able to walk up the forest trails which is about a two mile hike and I made it up and back just fine. I hadn't been able to even contemplate trying to do anything like that for at least the last couple of years. So, I've been very pleased with the treatment so far and I'm only about 12 treatments in at the present time. I'm looking forward to more relief as I go along!"

"I'm into eleven sessions now, and by the second treatment I was 99% pain free. Before that I would have almost constant burning, stinging and prickliness in my legs and feet. It was mostly at nighttime but would come even during the daytime. I kept trying different kinds of drugs but it was getting worse and worse. Finally I was lucky to see the ad on TV, got right in and started therapy right away and got immediate results! It's amazing, there's really no pain and it's great. I'm very thankful for this and I tell everybody about it. I was really amazed and hope we can help other people too!"

"I'm Judy's husband and we've been married for 45 years. I was really concerned about my wife because we'd lay in bed and her legs would be hurting her so bad. She wasn't able to exercise or able to do anything. I was saying "Wow, am I going to be wheeling her around in a wheelchair the rest of her life?" But, what a blessing this has been! I know the Lord led us here. Things are changing with my wife so much! We are able to go out and walk together now. She's up more because she doesn't have this pain. So, not only is this good for her own health but for our marriage as well because we are able to do a lot more things together. That really means a lot to us because we travel!"

"Before I came here I had constant pain in my feet because I do bookkeeping, which is a lot of sitting. The more time I'd sit the worse my feet would feel. My doctor told me there was nothing they could do for it, and that I was going to have to live with the pain for the rest of my life. So I came to the Bellevue Pain Institute, and it only took about 2/3 of the way through the program to notice that my constant pain in my feet was gone. I can sit for hours at a time if I need to, and I'm not in pain. I'm so incredibly happy with the results that I told my doctor. She's just thrilled and I'm thrilled! This was a life changing experience and I'm very glad that I did it!"

"I had tried chiropractic manipulation, energy balance treatment, acupuncture and pain management treatments but nothing helped with my pain. Before I came into the Bellevue Pain Institute I was resigned to the thought of continued loss of peripheral nerve function. Now, I am a more hopeful and I am seeing improvement. The office is clean, positive and well managed. The staff is very professional and pleasant."

"I am excited to be given this opportunity to share with you some changes that have occurred in my life. Thanks to Dr. Polzin and his Pain Institute, I went from very little hope to feeling that I will be able to recover totally. I had been told by other doctors that due to the dying nerves there was nothing to be done about it and that it would get worse as I got older. My future was now thinking about wheelchairs in order to move around in my house. Prior to coming here I had artery bypass surgery on my right leg and stints in my right thigh, and it felt as if I was walking in sand. In order to walk more than three steps I had to hold on to a cane or walker or my husband's arm. Since I have been coming to the Institute, the biggest change has been going from having one to three attacks during the week where I wouldn't be able to sleep for days in a row due to the constant pain keeping me up, to now having no nights like that. I have had no pain and can sleep 8 hours during the night now, instead of waking up in the middle of the night or no sleep at all. It's been a life changing experience. Other than the pain, I also wasn't able to walk without assistance. I've just shocked myself because I can now walk in the mall, and walk up my driveway which is on an incline without holding on. I'm looking forward to walking Safeco field. Last year I was only able to get around Safeco in a wheelchair. I'm just very excited. When I came in here I had a lot of skepticism. My husband was very, VERY skeptical. Now, there is evidence that it's working and I have faith in Dr. Polzin and in the Institute, and faith in the fact that I am going to be normal again!"

"I've had foot pain for over two years. Doctors told me there wasn't anything they could do about it and that the nerves would never grow. After researching, we came across the Bellevue Pain Clinic and came in for an interview, which I thought was very extensive. We decided to start the procedure, and after about two or three I felt that it was working. After ten visits I felt pretty good. The longer I keep coming, the better I am feeling. I am now two thirds of the way through, I can now spread my toes and curl my feet and pick up a towel. I haven't been able to do that before. And the most thrilling part is I can take 4 or 5 steps on my heels which I wasn't able to do!I think it's working very well, and I can't wait to get it over with where there is no pain."

"I wanted to give a testimonial on how well the Bellevue Pain Clinic has done in reversing the neuropathy I've had as a result of diabetes, which I've had for ten years. The neuropathy started about five years ago when I saw my motor skills really going downhill, to the point where I couldn't balance easily, I had to hold onto the rail in the shower in order to shower. I was a musician for many years and it was devastating to me emotionally not to be able to play my guitar anymore. So, as a result of an ad I heard on the radio on Komo, I came down to the clinic and interviewed with Dr. Polzin. He started me on a treatment program and the results have been absolutely magnificent. Within the space of ten visits I have doubled my nerve density. So, if any of you out there are going through what I went through: constant burning, tingling and numbness, you can probably live with a couple of those for awhile, but when it's 24/7 you really don't want to deal with it any longer. Within the first week, the burning went away. Within two weeks the tingling went away. Now I'm just dealing with the numbness. I know that the numbness will reverse itself in time. I'm so happy to recommend this to those that don't have any alternatives. So get on with it, and get rid of those nagging physical ailments and symptoms of neuropathy!"

"I've been coming to Dr. Polzin for about a month. Up until then I had severe foot and hand pain due to neuropathy, especially in my toes. It effected walking, work, and everyday activities from doing the dishes to going out in public. It would affect my mood and my behavior. After doing the laser therapy for a month it has made my day to day activities greatly improve. From my mood to the way I do things and how I do them. My overall health is better. I feel more capable of taking on those tasks that were difficult before. The pain has subsided a great deal. There is also home remedies that carry you beyond just coming into the office so that you're learning steps to help yourself without having to come back into the doctor's office."

""I am a skeptic, biggest skeptic you have ever met" is what I told Dr. Polzin and the wonderful staff at the Bellevue Pain Institute. But my life was resided to pain pills in the morning mid of the day and evening and even then, sleep was awful and fitful. My biggest concern and that of my wife was the loss of my balance which seemed to happen very quickly. So I was also a desperate skeptic. Dr. Polzin took a lot of time with me on that first day and he explained that the nerve damage in my feet was causing the pain much like phantom pain of someone who lost a limb. It started to make sense to me and my balance really improved as soon as I was able to start to feel my feet again. Now, just a few months after we began this treatment, I have NO MORE pain, I get to sleep easy and stay asleep better, even my snoring is less, I am back in the gym loosing the weight that I need to and my whole life is better and happier because of Dr. Polzin. Thank you for giving me my life back."

"Since about 1985 I had had daily headaches. I had tried many different things to help the pain. I was managing the pain mostly with pain pills. I would still get my headaches but they were more manageable. Using Dr. Polzin's special treatments I feel like my headaches are totally under control. It was really big for me because I hadn't felt that way since before 1985!"

"A few years back I didn't believe in chiropractic type of treatments. It took me fourteen years of severe headaches to finally decide to try it. This has been life changing. The cold laser and decompression techniques are the key! Life is too short to be taking hand-fills of pain killers every day and having a hangover feeling every morning. I would tell anyone considering care to go see Dr. Polzin and his team of professionals. Do not wait like I did to do something about your pain!"

"I was in a lot of pain, stemming from my shoulder. I just felt like I had low energy and low range of motion. I had tried physical therapy and took Ibuprofen but nothing seemed to work. After my first week using decompression and cold laser therapy with Dr. Kevin Polzin, I felt such a big improvement. I was feeling less pain, less flare ups and more range of motion. Now I'm feeling almost 100% better! I would say to anyone thinking about care with Dr. Polzin that they should come in and try it out! Stop living with pain, this will make a big difference!"

"Three weeks ago my feet hurt so bad I could hardly walk from my bedroom to the kitchen without sitting down. When I sit down I don't have pain, but when I walked my feet hurt so bad it felt like they were broken. I went to many doctors; they didn't do anything but verify I had peripheral neuropathy. They actually told me "We can't help you." Now that I've been coming to the Bellevue Pain Institute my pain when I walk is about half from what it was in the beginning. I'm also able to walk much better than I could three weeks ago!"

"I was so pleased to find out about Dr. Polzin's care. I came skeptical but I've now changed my mind. On the first day I was very impressed by the thoroughness of my examination. I came with painful feet and unsteady gait. I knew I was losing it more and more each day. I'm about two-thirds of the way through now and I've noticed an improvement. One day I got out of my chair and forgot to grab my cane for assistance; I walked into the bedroom and back out until I realized I forgot my cane! That's great! I am also sleeping much better, without needing to put rapid relief on my feet in order to sleep!"

I heard about the neuropathy treatment at the Bellevue Pain Institute when Dr. Polzin was on the television and decided to try it. I've had really incredible results. My pain has subsided.

"I had been trying to figure out what was wrong with me for two years. I went to see lots of doctors and took tests but nobody could tell me anything or help me. I had really, really bad pain in my feet. I wouldn't be able to sleep. There was a period when I didn't sleep for 3 days! I was also taking a lot of medications. My husband went online to do some research because he wanted me to be able to do something about the pain. That's when he found the Bellevue Pain Institute. Right after my tenth visit I noticed a huge difference. I could actually cut back on some of my medications. I used to be on pain medication but I don't need it at all now. I'm at about a level 2 pain now, but can live with that. To not have to take pain medication is huge!"

"I've had neuropathy for at least 7 years and three doctors told me there was nothing they could do for it and just to wear shoes and socks. One day I saw Dr. Polzin's ad and I took it out of the paper and put in on the refrigerator and looked at it for a month before my wife called to make an appointment. At that time I could barely walk, I couldn't feel my feet, my ankles were swollen, and I was falling because I didn't have any balance. Now I'm 11 sessions in and I can stand on one foot, I can feel the floor, I can feel my feet, I can feel hot and cold sensations, my walking has improved and my balance is much much better!"

His toes used to be curled and now they are flattening out the way they are supposed to be. I used to take him with me to run errands and dread it because he would walk like an old man.

"Before coming to the Bellevue Pain Institute I had a burning feeling in my feet and my hands were always tingling. My burning feet would keep me up at night and I would often cry myself to sleep. I tried many different kinds of medications like Cymbalta, and it would help for a little while but never lasted. I saw the ad in the Seattle Times for a Seminar and my husband said I had to go. He didn't want to see me crying anymore! We were of course skeptical, but am so happy with the results. Dr. Polzin has made my feet feel so much better! My feet are no longer burning and I can walk much easier. Even my boss noticed I seem like a new person! I would recommend this treatment to anyone. My son is a podiatrist, and even he would now recommend this treatment after seeing my results. It is definitely worth it!"

"I used to have significant pain and discomfort that I complained about often. I would walk as little as possible and my feet felt like they were "on fire." I started taking Gabapentin and there was some improvement in my pain but walking was not improving and I would find excuses to sit rather than walk. Getting in and out of the car or up from a sitting position anywhere was a problem. I did not feel safe on a step stool or ladder. My legs and toes had a great deal of discoloration. My physicians did not have any suggestions about how to improve this problem.
After my first treatment at the Bellevue Pain Institute, I was able to walk much faster than my wife to a nearby restaurant. We were both shocked. As the treatments have continued these are our observations:
1)The discoloration is dissipating on both legs and some clearing in the toes as well.
2)Shoes are not as uncomfortable as they used to be.
3)I finally feel that I "have toes" and can use them when getting up from sitting.
4)I used a new ladder without fear. No pain and not unsteady when I was on it!
5)I have been able to go on an actual walk several times which I have not been able to do for at lease three years. I was tired, but it wasn't pain that stopped me!
6) I have reduced my Gabapentin dosage in HALF. My hope is to discontinue it entirely over the next month.
7) I have a trip planned to New York City which will involve much walking. I was very concerned about the wisdom of this, but now feel much more confident that I can enjoy myself and won't be walking at a snail's pace or needing to find a place to sit and rest!
Overall all of my symptoms have significantly improved!"

"After years of heavy labor and struggling with diabetes, I developed a painful burning and numbness in both my feet. It was worse at night and would tingle constantly. The muscle cramps would cause me to have to sit down about every 2 hours and at the same time my feet just felt numb. I didn't understand how that could be possible. I went to no less than 10 other types of doctors. Nerve doctors, foot doctors pain doctors. Finally, they made me feel like I was just crazy and that it was all in my head. Then a friend said they saw Dr. Polzin being interviewed on TV. In that first exam I knew that he knew exactly what he was doing and that he could help. It has been a long process of recovery. I was one of the worst cases he had ever seen but now I am doing great. I highly recommend Dr. Polzin and his team to anyone struggling with pain in the feet. He also fixed my chronic back pain. It may even have had something to do with my foot pain."

"My friend who was coming in to the Bellevue Pain Institute invited me to join her during one of her treatments so I could just see and ask questions. I wanted to get a little insight as to some of the problems I was experiencing such as dry and cracked skin, not being able to stand for very long and having very little feeling in my feet. I was numb in my feet, legs, hands and in different places on my body. I am a person who lives with MS, but didn't believe that all my symptoms were caused by my MS. From a place of low stability in walking- I now feel very confident in my ability to stand and walk. This is just two months of treatment- I'm excited and ecstatic. The first thing I do is praise God and thank Him for Dr. Polzin because I can stand, I can walk, I feel like I could actually run if I gave it a chance. My feet aren't dry and crackly anymore. My circulation has improved. What's fun is I not only feel it in my legs, feet or hands I also feel it in other places of my body where I didn't have feeling because of the MS. I've just had a wonderful experience and I would encourage anybody to at least come, explore, and check it out!"

"When I first came here I had numbness in my hands every night. In addition I was beginning to lose balance in my feet. I found it hard to walk down stairs without losing my balance. I had even taken a balance class for two years but wasn't finding that I was getting any better, in fact I was getting worse! After the laser treatments with Dr. Polzin my balance is so much better. I feel more comfortable going down stairs knowing I don't need to use the railing as often. And delightfully my hands are not numb at night anymore. I have more flexibility in my feet and can feel each of my toes which I never felt before. I feel very happy I came here.

After the laser treatments my ankles are back to normal, better than they were two years ago! Medical doctors in the past had no remedies for me so I'm very happy to have found Dr. Polzin.

"When I first came to the Bellevue Pain Institute I was skeptical about their treatments. I asked a few of the patients in the office what their experience was like and if it was helping. They told me the laser treatments really worked and that they saw much improvement. I decided to do the laser treatments and am very happy with the results. On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the most painful, I was at a 10 in the beginning. Now my pain level is at a 4. I can live with a 4 whereas I couldn't live with a10. They also used lasers on my hip and think it's completely healed. I am able to walk more than 3 miles! I never thought I'd be able to do that again. I am very happy with my results here as well as my wife!"
