Place the XLR8 over Cortex (opposite side body damage) and then you may choose to laser over entire spine.
Start out conservatively and increase time as appropriate. A little laser therapy more often is a lot better than a lot, all at once. Repeat up to 1 - 4x-day.
NOTE: The above settings are not my preferred choice, but this manual is not about how I practice and a consortium of information of respected sources as well. But I have been taught many injury patterns from a Brain EEG research perspective and that makes sense and is reproducible and agreed upon from decades of research.
When a stroke occurs it also creates a high imbalance of Delta waves (1-4) and therefore these people think and move slowly. I know 1000's of doctors and have heard testimonials of 100's of stroke victims while using the standard 4, 9, 33 and 60. Although the number 4 is Delta waves and they already have too much Delta waves this is reminder of the benefits of wavelength and power output. But yet Hz's are amplifiers and in cases truly can be the determining factor.
Be a good doctor and observe and keep an open mind of what is best to help that specific person. Have a system and a philosophy but do not be afraid to listen and go out of the norm after 12-20 visits if results seem delayed.
