Persistent pain can have an adverse affect on every aspect of daily life. Low level laser therapy (LLLT), which is now approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), provides the very latest in safe, non-invasive treatment options for people with acute and chronic pain that has not responded to other types of treatment. LLLT is used to treat a wide variety of conditions, including back and neck pain, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, post-surgical pain, and injuries.
“Pain often interferes with family life, work, and leisure activities, and can force you to make drastic changes in the way you live,” says board-certified physician and surgeon, Stanley J. Swierzewski III, M.D. “Laser pain management is an innovative treatment that utilizes the most up-to-date medical technology to promote pain relief and healing, reduce inflammation, improve blood flow and range of motion, and stimulate the immune system—without drugs or surgery.”
Dr. Swierzewski and other members of the highly-qualified medical team at The Laser Pain Management Center now offer low level laser therapy (LLLT) for pain management. According to Dr. Swierzewski, “Laser treatments take just a few minutes, but the therapeutic effects continue to soothe and heal long after the treatment session. There is no discomfort during treatment—simply a deep, gentle warmth as your body responds to the light.”
Low level laser therapy, LLLT, also called cold laser therapy, causes no known risks or side effects and provides long-lasting pain relief. The light energy from low level lasers cannot cause burns or tissue damage. Each treatment session lasts only about 5–10 minutes and, although the full benefits of LLLT may require several treatment sessions, many patients experience significant improvement after the very first treatment. Low level laser therapy can be used alone or in combination with other treatments, such as physical therapy, massage therapy, chiropractic therapy, and acupuncture.
During low level laser therapy, light energy from hand-held lasers penetrates deep into the muscles, joints, bones, and tendons. This laser light stimulates a biochemical reaction that helps to repair damaged tissue and promote healing. LLLT provides faster results, as well as a high rate of patient satisfaction, and requires shorter treatment times than many other pain relief methods.
Many people who currently suffer with chronic pain may find relief through cold laser therapy.
