Osteoarthritis causes severe pain and stiffness which can have a major effect on your quality of life. If you are currently experiencing osteoarthritis, you may feel like there are few options to reduce the pain and stiffness.
Laser Therapy is a safe, non-invasive treatment which can help to reduce pain and improve mobility. There are no injections or surgery involved.
Laser Therapy helps to reduce inflammation and stimulates cell regeneration, helping to improve joint function. After a course of treatment, many people often report an significant improved range of motion, less inflammation and less pain.
Low-level laser therapy (LLLT), also known as PBM or photobiomodulation, is a non-invasive procedure that involves the application of low-intensity lasers or light-emitting diodes to the skin. The goal of LLLT is to stimulate cellular activity and promote healing and pain relief.
Mechanism of action:
LLLT is thought to work by increasing the production of cellular energy (adenosine triphosphate or ATP) in the cell. This increased energy production can help regulate inflammation, reduce pain, and aid in tissue repair. In combination with nutrition therapy results are often enhanced and in some cases cartilage improvements may actually occur.
Research and Performance:
The effectiveness of LLLT can vary depending on factors such as treatment parameters, severity of osteoarthritis, and individual patient response. We believe that when laser for osteoarthritis is found ineffective the biggest reason is the laser is not directly applied to the joint or administered by untrained staff.
LLLT is generally considered safe with minimal risk of side effects. It is non-invasive and usually painless. However, it is important to follow LLLT treatments under experienced professional guidance to ensure proper application and monitoring.
Laser Therapy is fast and effective, with results often being seen in as little as two to three weeks. If you have been suffering from hip, knee or shoulder osteoarthritis, this is a great first path treatment for you to consider.
