Eight in ten Americans will experience low back pain in their lifetime. In addition, adults reporting low back pain were three times as likely to be in fair or poor health (versus good or excellent) and more than four times as likely to experience serious psychological distress than people without low back pain. That is a staggering number of people in need of back pain relief!
While back pain is the most common form of chronic pain, many suffer from pain in other parts of the body.
Low-level laser therapy can help with back pain relief as well as other types of chronic pain relief. Laser therapy targets the root of the problem, rather than just suppressing it. The non-invasive laser generates a wavelength of light. There is no heat, sound, or vibration. The photons of light from the laser pass through the layers of skin and interact with body cells. The cells absorb the light energy, which initiates cellular activity that heals damaged or injured tissue. The result is a reduction in pain, inflammation, edema and an overall reduction in healing time.
The process is somewhat similar to photosynthesis in plants. The plant cells absorb sunlight and convert the sunlight to energy for growth.
At Juvenate Healing in Tempe, we are proud to have the Erchonia FX635. It is the first and only laser in the world with FDA market clearance for the treatment of chronic low back pain. A double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized, parallel group, multi-center clinical trial showed that the FX635 can effectively and safely treat low back pain.
Immediately after the treatment, patients reported a 42% decrease in pain. One month after treatment, patients experienced a 53% decrease. Two months post treatment, patients had a 58% decrease in pain.
Beyond this market clearance, the machine is also designed for maximum impact. The machine has 3 non-invasive lasers that rotate to target the pain source and address inflammation.
