An Epidemic of Pain
Aspen Class IV Laser Therapy Can Help
Pain is one of the top health problems in the United States. An estimated 50 million Americans live with chronic pain caused by disease, disorder or accident. An additional 25 million people suffer acute pain resulting from surgery or accident. The most common types of pain are arthritic conditions, sprain/strains, tendonitis and fibromyalgia.
The following are common questions we get about laser therapy:
How are treatments administered?
Treatments are performed by positioning the laser hand piece approximately ½” directly above the skin and surrounding the area of injury and pain with the laser treatment beam.
How many treatments are needed?
The Class IV Laser Therapy produces results quickly. For most ACUTE conditions 5-6 treatments is all that is needed. CHRONIC conditions take longer and might require 6-12 treatments. While these are the averages, each person is unique and healing time varies by person and condition.
How long will the treatment take?
Depending on the condition, treatment times for this drug-free, non-invasive procedure will last on average 5-10 minutes but is based on the size of area, depth of penetration needed, and condition being treated.
Will the treatment hurt?
Most patients notice a warm, often soothing feeling. There is no pain associated with a treatment. Many patients also experience reduced muscle tension and tightness, reduced inflammation and improved range of motion.
When can normal activity begin again?
The moment a person leaves the clinic, they may resume normal daily activity. It is important to remember not to overexert for a few days, as the body is still healing.
How does class IV laser therapy work?
When the photons of laser light penetrate the skin and underlying tissue, they are absorbed by the cells, and converted into energy, healing energy.
What advantage does class IV laser therapy have over other forms of treatment?
The treatment does not require the use of drugs or surgery, and there are no dangerous side effects or risks. In addition, Laser therapy provides enhanced treatment outcomes faster than any other treatment modality.
