The Class IV Avicenna Laser has been proven to treat Neck, Low Back and/or Sciatica Pain, Numbness & Tingling caused by Bulging/Herniated Discs, Degenerated Disc Disease, Facet Syndrome, Neuropathy, Shingles, and Failed Back Surgery.
Laser therapy is a noninvasive use of laser energy to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation and speed recovery from acute and chronic clinical conditions. Laser therapy uses a process called photobiomodulation. Photons enter the tissue and interact with the cytochrome c complex within mitochondria. This interaction triggers a biological cascade of events that leads to an increase in cellular metabolism and a decrease in both pain and inflammation. Unlike medications, laser therapy reduces pain without undesirable side effects.
It is also important to point out that many patients report long-lasting pain relief after being treated with laser!
Laser is particularly effective when it is administered as soon as possible following injury. The faster the inflammation is reduced and the healing process can begin, the better the outcome. In the case of acute injury, laser therapy helps restore the body to normal function quicker.
Laser therapy may also be used to treat chronic conditions, most often to help combat persistent pain and inflammation. The Class IV Avicenna Laser is being used by clinicians to quickly reduce inflammation in patients suffering from chronic pain. This therapy laser is especially well-suited for treating chronic conditions because it enables clinicians to treat a wider area of interest while still delivering therapeutically relevant dosages.
The number of treatments required will vary depending on the acuity of the condition, many patients experience lasting relief after only a couple treatments!
Is it Safe?
Yes! Low-level-laser therapy has been in use for over 30 years around the world, with Hundreds of clinical studies and scientific papers documenting the effectiveness and safety of this therapy. The FDA has cleared laser therapy for use in the United States.
How long does a treatment take?
Laser treatment may take anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes, depending on the condition being treated. Even though immediate relief of pain may be noted, it does not mean the condition is fully healed, making it important to complete all of the recommended treatments improve the chances of long term success.
