How Pain Laser Therapy Works

Pain laser therapy is the solution many people have been looking for to deal with chronic pain that can't be relieved through other more traditional methods. This type of therapy has many uses in the world of pain relief, from osteoarthritis to pain associated with varicose veins. Here's how the basic process of pain laser therapy works:

  1. The lasers enter the skin and begin to react with various cells
  2. The cells trigger energy that helps with the healing process.
  3. Cell growth is stimulated in the body, allowing cells to talk to each other better.
  4. As more cells are grown the heart begins to cycle more immune cells throughout the body.
  5. The increased cells are then able to help heal and relieve the chronic pain.

Pain laser therapy can take place outside or inside the skin, depending on what kind of pain you are dealing with. For example, the pain associated with varicose veins is dealt with by inserting a laser producing fiber into the vein on the leg. Pain laser therapy in this case actually involves shooting a laser inside the vein to relive the swelling that causes pain with varicose veins.

Pain laser therapy, also known as low level laser therapy, is being used to relieve pain in a variety of health problems, including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Chronic joint problems
  • Chronic and acute neck pain
  • Herniated disc
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Muscle injuries
  • Headaches

Many patients who have experienced pain laser therapy have found great relief when other treatment methods could do nothing to control the pain. Additionally, there are many benefits to be had when you opt for pain laser therapy over other treatment methods for chronic pain.

Pain laser therapy is completely non-toxic and far less invasive than surgery. It is also very easily applied and highly effective in most cases. Generally you don't have to do much to take this therapy other than show up for your appointment. The therapist then places the laser emitting machine on the part of the body where the pain is, and treatment is relatively painless. In just a short amount of time, you'll be pain free and able to get on with your life.
