Laser therapy is a breakthrough pain relief module cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) – and the only product on the market today that combines two proven therapies: low-level laser and micro-current electrical stimulation. Research has shown that, in combination, these two therapies – each evidence-based and scientifically proven – treat the source of pain (not the symptoms) and promote the body's natural healing process at the cellular level.
The FDA's summary of use states: this combination of low-level laser and micro-current electrical stimulation provides symptomatic relief of chronic, intractable pain, and is indicated for adjunctive treatment of post-surgical and post-traumatic acute pain and for adjunctive use in providing temporary relief of minor chronic neck and shoulder pain of musculoskeletal origin.
There are three hallmarks of Laser Therapy that define it as a significant breakthrough in the treatment of pain:
1. subsequent studies and clinical trials have reproduced consistent results
2. pain sufferers report rapid results – oftentimes with one or two, two-minute treatments
3. study results point to cumulative benefits of repeated use – related to the intensity or significance of the pain as well as improved function
Despite the fact that the majority of the U.S. population looks healthy, statistics tell a different story: The American Academy of Pain Management (AAPM) estimates that 1 in 3 Americans suffer from chronic pain. This could be an illness like cancer or rheumatoid arthritis, or a condition such as arthritis, migraine headaches or back pain from a car accident. Put another way: More than 75 million Americans – more than those diagnosed with diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined – live with chronic pain that makes simple tasks like lifting a child, sitting at their workstation, or swinging a golf club nearly impossible.
In common language, Laser Therapy has been cleared for use to relieve:
• Back Pain
• Hip, Knee, and Shoulder Pain
• Muscle Tension
• Post-Surgical Pain
• Post-Traumatic Pain
• and more…
Clinical studies commissioned to secure FDA clearance showed that the Laser Therapy is 93% effective in decreasing pain in study patients who received the full treatment regimen and was more effective than a single modality TENS unit.
In a marketplace filled with prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications, conventional medical treatments, alternative therapies, and invasive surgical procedures, laser therapy truly stands alone as a safe, effective, painless, pain relief solution. The bottom line impact of this extraordinary product, on one’s quality of life and ability to resume an active and healthier lifestyle, is significant.
• Treatment promotes the body’s natural repair and healing processes at the cellular level
• Proven to be 93% effective in relieving pain
• Provides a safe alternative to medication as well as surgery and other invasive procedures
• A qualified medical device expense
• Comfortable and painless
• Overall improved quality of life!
Laser Therapy combines science, medicine and technology in creating a powerful new alternative for pain relief.
Low-Level Laser Therapy, also referred to as cold laser, is a method of treatment using a single diode laser for delivery of low level (cold) laser therapy. It is a well-established therapy for pain relief and rehabilitation of numerous injuries. The laser light penetrates tissue where it is absorbed by cells and effectively stimulates healing and rapid pain relief.
Micro-Current Electrical Stimulation stimulates the nerves in affected areas. These micro-currents effectively block pain and stimulate the production of endorphins, which are the body's natural pain relievers. As a result, local physiological changes become evident, namely muscle relaxation and improved circulation. When this occurs, oxygen flows more freely and promotes natural healing.
The synergy of the dual treatment modalities delivered via a hand-held instrument and available without a prescription is a true alternative to current pain management techniques that include medications, surgery and other invasive procedures and will forever change the way the millions who suffer from chronic and acute pain view their treatment options – knowing that the answer to a pain-free future can be obtained.
