New Technology that Helps Relieve Pain and Speed Healing

Dr Bret WilsonLight has healing properties.  Sunlight is required for plants to grow.  Humans require sunlight to produce vitamin D for bone, heart and immune system health.   Modern technology has found a way to incorporate light to stimulate healing in the body and relieve pain.  Low level laser therapy (LLLT) has become one of the world’s leading new health technologies providing physicians and patients with new treatment options.

Biostimulation lasers, also called low level laser therapy (LLLT), cold lasers, soft lasers, or laser acupuncture devices, were cleared for marketing by FDA through the Premarket Notification/510(k) process as adjunctive devices for the temporary relief of pain.  These clearances were based on the presentation of clinical data to support such claims.  There are over 4000 studies that validate the effectiveness of cold laser therapy. It is safe and non-invasive, providing relief from both acute and chronic conditions without drugs or surgery.

Laser equipment incorporates super pulsed laser power and an entire range of therapeutic light spectrums to deliver its energy in a synergistic manner.  Laser therapy penetrates deep into tissue and does not produce heat.  The mechanism is not completely understood, but research indicates that LLLT stimulates cellular activity that in turn intensifies physiological activity.  Healing is the result of this increased cell activity.

This is the world’s most advanced pain relieving modality which has been used by professional sports teams / athletes, as well as people of all ages and conditions who choose an effective treatment without drugs or invasive procedures.   In the United States, athletes who compete internationally were some of the first to embrace the modality as they saw competing athletes use the technology with great results.  NASA investigated and developed the technology to grow plant life in space, only to find the healing properties could help astronauts with pain and healing.

Laser therapy is used to treat conditions such as acute, sub-acute and chronic pain, back pain, bursitis, carpal tunnel, arthritis pain, fibromyalgia, ligament sprains, tendonitis, tennis elbow, soft tissue injuries and muscle strain.  Laser therapy has also shown applications for stimulating wound healing and certain skin conditions.  Neuropathy that causes burning and tingling in the hands and feet is another condition that often responds to LLLT when nothing else has helped.  LLLT is used in hospitals and by physicians, chiropractors and physical therapists as an adjunct to other treatments and therapies.  There are laser light units that are safe and effective for home use.

Can you benefit from the healing power of light?  A consultation with a practitioner who has the technology and procedures available is a great place to start.  Find out how laser therapy can help you enjoy life free from pain!
