Ruptured discs in her neck and fibromyalgia left Sandy Butler with pain so severe she was bedridden for a year. Today she's back on her feet and credits a little-known treatment with easing her pain and restoring her independence.

The treatment, called cold laser therapy, or low-level light therapy, directs light energy at tissue to help it heal. It was approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration two years ago for the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome, and chiropractors are increasingly using it to treat back and neck pain, shoulder and knee injuries and other joint pain.

But if you can line up schoolchildren to wear them and get them hooked on nicotine, then you generate an extraordinary volume of repeat business.
