FDA cleared treatment of pain and inflammation associated with the following conditions:
Safe, warm laser light penetrates deeply to help reduce inflammation, speed healing, and relieve pain.
Significant pain relief and improved function is typically achieved for these conditions and more:
AN EPIDEMIC OF PAIN
Pain is one of the top health problems in the United States. An estimated 50 million Americans live with chronic pain caused by disease, disorder or accident. An addit ional 25 million people suffer acute pain resulting from surgery or accident. Approximately two thirds of these individuals in pain have been living with this pain for more than five years. The most common types of pain include arthritis, lower back, bone/ joint pain, muscle pain and fibromyalgia. The loss of productivity and daily activity due to pain is substantial. In a study done in 2000, it was reported that 36 million Americans missed work in the previous year due to pain, and that 83 million indicated that pain affected their participation in various activities. People with chronic pain have difficulty finding doctors who can effectively treat their pain. The Chronic Pain in America: Roadblocks to Relief study found that one out of four pain patients had changed doctors at least three times, reporting that the primary reason for change was that they still experienced pain.
NEW TREATMENT OPTIONS WITH LASER THERAPY
Laser therapy is a safe, pain free treatment that only takes a few minutes per visit. Laser Therapy does not require the use of drugs or surgery, and there are no side effects or risks that may occur with other forms of treatment. In addition, it can often achieve results faster and better than other treatment modalities. Many conditions show signs of improvement in even the first or second treatments. The primary mechanism of laser therapy is photo biomodulation which causes a stimulation of cells and tissue repair that is based on scientific research which has demonstrated positive physiologic al effects of infrared wavelengths on cellular organelles and electron chain molecules.
Treatments are performed by positioning the laser hand piece approximately 1⁄2” directly above the skin and surrounding the area of injury and pain with the laser treatment beam.
The Class IV Laser Therapy produces results quickly. For most ACUTE conditions 5-6 treatments is all that is needed. CHRONIC conditions take longer and might require 6 – 12 treatments. While these are the averages, each person is unique and healing time varies by person and condition.For those with lifelong conditions your doctor may recommend 1 or 2 follow – up treatments each month.
Depending on the condition, treatment times for this drug-free, non-invasive procedure will laston average 5-10 minutes but is based on the size of area, depth of penetration needed, and condition being treated.
Most patients notice a warm, often soothing feeling. There is no pain associated with a treatment. Many patients also experience reduced muscle tension and tightness, reduced inflammation and improved range of motion.
The moment a person leaves the clinic, they may resume normal daily activity. It is important to remember to not overexert for a few days, as the body is still healing.
Laser therapy may not be covered by insurance plans. If insurance does not cover the cost of treatments, there are affordable payment plans available.
When the photons of laser light penetrate the skin and underlying tissue, they are absorbed by the cells and converted into energy. The cell membrane permeability is altered, which triggers a cascade of cellular events including:
The treatment does not require the use of drugs or surgery, and there are no dangerous side effects or risks. In addition, Laser therapy provides enhanced treatment outcomes faster than any other treatment modality.
Cold Laser Therapy (or LLLT – Low Level Light Therapy) was introduced into the USA in 2001 with low power levels. Since that time new scientific and clinical discoveries have led to the development of the higher power lasers, including the new Class IV Laser Therapy.
