CLEVELAND, Oct. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Unfortunately, 20% of all adults suffer from persistent, chronic pain
For many years, there have been few treatment options available. We all know the potentially harmful side effects both over-the-counter and prescription pain medications can cause, while surgery is a very invasive option that requires recovery time and has potential side effects such as bleeding and wound infection.
According to the U.S. Government's National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), "chronic pain has been linked to restricted mobility, opioid dependency, anxiety, and depression and reduced quality of life, and it contributes to an estimated $560 billion annually in direct medical costs, lost productivity, and disability programs in the United States."
As pain is a very complex condition, pain relief is equally as complex to treat, resulting in millions of Americans who keep searching for pain relief options that work for them. Everyone experiences pain differently.
More and more pain sufferers are now turning to less harmful alternative/complementary health treatments such as yoga, massage, Tai Chi, meditation, and Low-Level Laser Therapy.
Pain sufferers starting new exercise to relieve pain typically experience increased soreness and muscle pain. People become more sedentary as they age, and are less likely to turn to physical activity for pain relief.
So, where can pain sufferers turn to for easy to use, convenient pain relief that appeals to all ages and all pain levels?
One treatment option that has been getting much attention is Low Level-Laser Therapy. This medical device utilizes innovative technology that emits light energy to promote recovery. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared it for both healthcare professional and in-home patient use to treat a wide range of acute and chronic pain conditions.
Essentially, Low-Level Laser Therapy uses light energy to stimulate recovery, and relieve pain and inflammation. This light energy does not radiate heat (non-thermal) nor does it break through the skin's surface (non-invasive). When held over the injury site, the laser emits different wavelengths of penetrating light that has been clinically validated to effectively treat dermal tissue (skin), nerves, tendons, cartilage, and bones.
There are over 4,000 studies published in Pub.Med.gov that have demonstrated the efficacy and safety of laser therapy. Laser therapy can help medical conditions such as:
Laser treatment is simple and easy to use. The laser device is held directly against the skin, with treatment taking just minutes a day. Treatment time is dependent upon the severity of the condition. Some pain sufferers may get optimal results within 1 - 2 daily treatments, while others with more severe conditions may need more extended medical care.
Neck, back or joint pain usually responds quickly to laser therapy. Bruce Salomon has used laser therapy for his chronic back pain. He was unable to play golf. "I haven't been able to play golf in two years. I haven't been able to lift a club; now with laser therapy, I now have the opportunity to go on a golf course and play with my sons."
Healthcare professionals are also using Low-Level Laser Therapy in their practices. "This non-invasive and easy to utilize therapy has been well received by our patients. We are very pleased with the positive outcomes we are seeing" says Kalyan Lingham, M.D., a pain management specialist in Hilliard, Ohio.
Keep in mind that lasers are not all the same. For instance, only a select few, such as Multi Radiance Medical's Super Pulsed Laser have received the FDA's NHN product classification. This product classification is rare among laser manufacturers due to the very rigorous application process, which includes conducting and submitting clinical data to support the laser's claims of safety and effectiveness. According to Max Kanarsky, Multi Radiance Medical CEO, "we have built our company's reputation upon consistently developing safe, effective lasers backed by extensive clinical studies to ensure optimal pain relief and patient safety."
