Alleviate Neuropathic Pain with High Dose Laser Therapy
February 12, 2019
High dose laser therapy is a painless and non-invasive treatment option for patients with chronic pain. It is very effective for the treatment of :
- Non-healing wounds
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Muscle bruising
- Pain in the head, neck, or back
- Ligament and tendon injuries
- Foot pain
- Carpal tunnel pain
Neuropathic pain is any chronic pain caused by nerve damage. When nerves are damaged they send pain signals to the brain. This can occur even during periods of rest, making life difficult for those who suffer from neuropathic pain. High dose laser therapy (HDLT) sends light energy deep into the tissues beneath the skin to reach the source of the pain. It promotes healing and can promote the regeneration of damaged nerves. It has been shown to stimulate tissue growth and repair tissues at the cellular level. Many patients report an improved quality of life after receiving HDLT treatments.
It is important to note that laser therapy has had approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since 2003. It is deemed safe and effective in treating neuropathic pain, making it a very effective treatment option. It is non-addictive and a valuable alternative for patients who cannot tolerate pain medications or wish to avoid them.
