Do you suffer from chronic pain or know someone who does? If so, you’re not alone. In fact, according to the National Institute of Health, one in five Americans reports living with chronic pain. For many people, chronic pain is a debilitating condition that seriously impacts their quality of life. Until recently, the most common treatment methods were prescription drugs, injections, and – as a last resort – surgery.
But what if there was a better treatment for chronic pain?
Over the last few years, doctors have been using laser therapy more and more to treat patients’ chronic pain. Why? This innovative treatment option is non-invasive and uses low-level laser light to target and reduce inflammation and pain.
Available exclusively through OrthoLazer Laser Centers, the MLS M8 Robotic Laser is the most advanced laser system on the market. It provides the relief from chronic pain that patients are looking for, but without the risk of addiction caused by opioids or any of the invasive risks caused by surgery or injections.
Why is laser treatment superior to medication?
If you consider the fact that in the year 2016, nearly 43,000 Americans died as a result of taking overdoses of opioids, you can see the severity of the problem. Consider also that nearly 100 million Americans are currently taking opioids as a means of pain relief, and this should demonstrate the extent of the problem.
The factor that makes laser therapy superior to any other treatment strategy is that it accomplishes healing at the cellular level, literally from the inside out. Laser therapy reduces inflammation, thereby bringing immediate comfort to a patient. It increases the level of blood circulation to the affected area, and that causes a flood of helpful nutrients to rush into the area. Cell regeneration gets a huge boost from the increased ATP cellular energy that results from laser stimulation. Also, the increased release of natural hormones like serotonin and endorphins makes the patient feel better, right while the laser session is in progress.
How good is laser treatment?
Many health experts state that laser treatment will revolutionize healthcare in this country. It’s that effective. As more people become aware of the potential for laser therapy, it should easily become the most popular choice for chronic pain relief.
