Like many allusions to myths, classical literature, and so on, a more recent generation than my own, has lost contact with some of the clever things such as Aesop's Fables that teach many of life's lessons.
I used it when I had sciatic pain - which usually lasts for several days minimum - after doing yard work. After using Light Relief twice in one day, the pain was gone the next day. Our dog has 3 compressed vertebrae in his lower back and was dragging his back legs, barely able to walk, unable to lift his leg to pee, unable to position himself to poop without being supported. When this happened a year and a half ago, several acupuncture treatments by a veterinarian enabled him to do all those things normally, until about 3 months ago when he relapsed. This time, acupuncture did not help, but 3 LASER heat treatments by another veterinarian showed some results, so we bought this Light Relief unit and our dog showed immediate improvement. After treating him 3 or 4 times per week for the last month he is back to at least 95% of his normal ability to walk, pee and poop - and he's much happier and more energetic. A neighbor borrowed it and after only 2 uses, her chronic shoulder pain was gone.
Helmet fits well and very light weight. Only downside with the unit is the Roc Loc system. The Roc Loc system has a weakness and tends to break around the same area. Just above the the rotary dial is a plastic thin attachment brace that allows the Roc Loc system to move up and down for fitment. The brace tends to break leaving adjustment uncomfortable and pokes the lower back part of the skull. Other than this issue, the helmet has bee good and a joy to each time I go out. I've been using the unit almost 3 years several of my ride mates experienced the same issue. Warranty w/ Giro is only 1 year. Parts replacement ranges from $10 for the Roc Loc and $5 for the padding. Unfortunately, the harness is not replaceable due to liability reasons per Giro. This is the only reason why I did not give this review 5 stars. Most manufacturers will be more than happy to send a complimentary replacement part if broken.
