Doctors are always searching for better ways to care for their patients. More effective techniques, safer procedures and advanced treatments to improve outcomes and help people feel better are always the top priority. One of the most amazing breakthroughs is the use of cold lasers as a therapeutic treatment for pain relief. Laser therapy for the treatment of chronic pain is one of the biggest leaps forward in recent history. It’s exciting because it’s effective, safe, painless and has no known side effects.
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) increases the body’s ability to heal. The light penetrates deep into the tissue and stimulates cellular activity, without generating heat that damages structures. This results in an increase in blood flow which initiates the healing process. LLLT uses low intensity photon energy to excite the body’s cells infusing them with energy. This causes the body to react in positive healing ways.
Laser energy has the potential to reduce inflammation, regenerate cells and increase blood flow to the area. These three reactions influence the body’s ability to heal itself. Not only is there potential for LLLT to help people suffering from neuropathy, but it can also help others with painful joints, muscles and chronic injuries find relief.
It isn’t very often that a new technology has such a positive impact on so many different conditions. Many patients are saying it has improved the quality of their lives and are making comments like, I didn’t have to take any medicine and it was quick and painless. I started to feel some relief from the first treatment, and it got better with each one.
