BoSci Precision installed *sucess story*

Had a BoSci installed last February after much contemplation, in April had it re-adjusted to cover more of the foot area. I suffer from Chronic Bi-Lateral Plantar Fasciitis and L5-S1 compression, the stim hits my lower back and feet well enough to relieve some of the pain but of course not all. I started seeing a psychiatrist as I am having a hard time dealing with depression and chronic pain, also knowing my day and happiness depends on a battery pack tucked into my body. I've got the upper back/rib area pain when the stim is on, not so much that I turn it off but it is a different pain like a muscle cramping or full-tension.
All in all I consider it a success and I would take the risk of having it installed again, it isn't a cure all but takes my mind off pain enough for me to work. My bosses have noted a remarkable boost in performance since it's been installed because I can focus on work which makes me feel better. I've actually gotten back into the gym a bit and starting to get my body back in shape and strengthen my core to hopefully help resolve the L5-S1 issues or at least prevent more damage.
If you have any questions fire away and I'll try to answer best I can, I am not a doctor but I did stay at a Holiday inn last night so.......
