Laser Therapy for Pain Relief
Looking for a unique treatment that can help your body heal from chronic injuries and relieve pain? Low level laser therapy is changing the way health care practitioners are helping individuals heal from injuries and chronic disease and improve their quality of life.
According to published Medical Reports, Low Level Laser Therapy can improve many acute and chronic conditions such as:
- Relief of hand and wrist pain associated with Carpal
- Tunnel Syndrome.
- Relief of muscle and joint pain
- Muscle spasm
- Relief of stiffness
- Promotion of muscle relaxation
How Low-level Laser Therapy Works
Low level laser therapy traces its history back to the early 1960’s when researchers discovered that laser light could stimulate a response at the cellular level of tissues in the body, resulting in increased energy levels (ATP, adenosine triphosphate). This increase in energy enables the body’s cells to metabolize at a higher rate and speeds its natural ability to heal. In short, the body converts the laser light into a
form of energy that it can use (biochemical energy) to repair itself and function at a higher efficiency level. This process is similar to the human body using the sun’s energy to manufacture Vitamin D.
How Low Level Laser Therapy is Used
Low level laser therapy has almost endless applications because of its approach to healing. Its low intensity does not burn or cut tissue like high-powered surgical lasers and there are no known side effects. Laser therapy is effective in treating many conditions that are prominent today, such as chronic arthritis, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, and sports injuries just to name a few. Many professional athletes utilize laser therapy to reduce healing time. People worldwide are experiencing the benefits of laser therapy by eliminating their
dependence on pain medications, avoiding surgery, decreasing or eliminating pain, and returning to a healthier lifestyle.
Low-level Laser Therapy may assist you or someone you care about in reducing pain medications or avoiding surgery. Low-level Laser Therapy is a noninvasive and drugless alternative approach to aid in pain reduction.
