Herinated Disc L3 L4 and L5 for 10 years. Rented a Bemer Pro mat for two weeks and it has reduced my opiod intake 75% on average and my pain 50% - 75% on average (I have good days and bad days - mostly good days of 75% average pain reduction). I realized I couldn't live without the matt. Radio Frequency Treatment had worked a few times but this last time it did not work at all. Have now been using bemer pro matt twice a day for 8 minutes about a month and I continue to be very impressed. It has been improving my overall health - no more sinus migranes and also helping with weight loss which I hope will alleviate more pain in the months to come. The product is expensive but definitely one of the best investments I have ever made. I feel my quality of life has been restored.
