I have been using the MAGNESPHERE at the Action Sport Physio clinic on St-Jean Blvd. for 4 weeks. For several months, I have been suffering from a crumbling disc at the bottom of my spine and intense osteoarthritis around that disc. After several adjustments of powerful painkillers, I more or less resigned myself to live that way until back surgery. In early June, a neurosurgeon diagnosed severe bursitis in my right hip, a diagnosis none of the many other doctors I consulted in the last eight months had been able to make, so that I can be treated properly! Morphine was a big tool used during this period of 8 months, but according to the surgeon, I had to put it aside now.

Running out of solutions, Alain Scheldeman offered me treatments in the magnosphere, with a predetermined program to alleviate the severe pain of my condition. After a few treatments, I feel much better, without taking morphine and with painkillers that have been much less strong for the past three weeks. I am also more mobile and I stopped walking bent over like a very old person. Relief and mobility have become my friends again. So I continue to “MAGNOSPHERE” myself...with the greatest pleasure and for the salvation of my back and hip. I recommend this treatment hands down! Thank you, Alain. My life has been a little easier these past few weeks... and the magnosphere has played a great role in this, without invasive treatment!
