Pain Management

PAIN IS PREVALENT

Recent stats from Scientific American:

  • 28% of Americans are in pain at any given time
  • $2.6 Billion is spent annually on non-prescription pain killers
  • $13.8 Billion is spent annually on prescription pain killers
  • $16.4 Billions is spent annually on pain medications
  • $60 Billion lost annually due to lost productivity related to pain

We offer the best selection of pain control treatments for pain relief without drugs, surgery or negative side effects.

Why Choose Laser Treatment?

Low level lasers have been used world-wide for over 30 years. Over 3500 studies have shown that low level lasers:

  1. REDUCE PAIN by stimulating cells to produce their own endorphins, natural pain killers,
  2. PROMOTE FASTER HEALING by stimulating cells to increase the production of two major healing enzymes by as much as 75%,
  3. REDUCE INFLAMMATION by as much as 75%,
  4. INCREASE BONE REPAIR SPEED by stimulating fibroblastic and osteoblastic proliferation,
  5. RELAX MUSCLES and muscle spasms,
  6. DECREASE SWELLING by stimulating lymphatic drainage,
  7. ENHANCE THE IMMUNE SYSTEM by increasing the number of "killer" cells by 400-900%, and most importantly,
  8. RE-ENERGIZE CELL MEMBRANES to allow transport of essential nutrients across cell walls (nutrients will not cross an injured or sick cell wall, thus slowing healing) allowing a healthy new cell to grow.

Analgesic Effects

  • Measurable changes in the potential of nerve cell membranes lead to its hyperpolarization as a good analgesic mechanism
  • Improved release reaction of ß-endorphines
  • Changes in transmitter concentration at the synapsis
  • Accumulation of 5-OH-indoleacetate (serotonin metabolite)
  • Relaxation of muscle induced by the neuromuscular unit (ATP increase)

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Laser therapy can be highly effective for carpel tunnel syndrome, when correctly diagnosed. In such a compression neuralgia, low level laser acts by reducing oedema and reducing or eliminating pain. If treated early, complete remission of symptoms can be achieved with laser alone.


For more long-standing conditions it is most useful as a complementary measure. If surgery has been undertaken, then laser therapy's ability to promote wound-healing and again address pain both through nociceptor suppression and endorphin release, make it an ideal therapy for optimal post-operative recovery.


Although each case will differ depending on the individual and the stage of the condition, in general treatment every 3 or 4 days would be advised to a total of approximately 10 sessions.

Tendonitis

Laser therapy is widely used to treat various types of tendonitis, both with direct application and by the use of trigger point stimulation. Infra-red laser is generally used and the depth of the tendon beneath the skin dictates the dosage and the area of inflammation the number of points to be treated at each session.
