Breaking the Cycle of Pain (sponsored)
Managing chronic pain is a challenge at any age, but it’s even more of a predicament as we grow older, especially in the face of conflicting advice and traditional treatments that may include surgery and potentially addictive medications that can do more harm than good. News headlines abound about an opioid epidemic that often begins with medication prescribed to treat chronic pain. But there are alternatives to pills and surgery. For over 23 years (18 at my Salem, N.H., office), I have helped alleviate the pain of thousands of patients, first through the practice of chiropractic care, then through alternative allergy therapies and over the past year with robotic laser therapy.
As the first health care provider in New Hampshire to offer Multiwave Locked System robotic laser therapy, an FDA-cleared machine from Cutting Edge Technologies, many of my patients have experienced significant pain reduction with no medication, no invasive procedures, no side effects, and, in many cases, for a lower cost than deductibles and co-pays for traditional techniques.
The MLS laser halts the chronic pain cycle by breaking through tissue, reducing swelling and stimulating blood flow — the combined effect speeds up healing. The body is a self-healing organism. When we take pressure off the nervous system, the body does an amazing thing, which is to be in health, defined as 100 percent function, 100 percent of the time. Physically, mentally and spiritually. MLS laser therapy meets the needs of the self-healing body.
Laser therapy uses light energy to mend damaged cells and stimulate intercellular activity, thus repairing tissue and reducing inflammation. The treatment is painless. The sessions are cumulative — each lasts an average of 10 minutes. The MLS laser is the only Class 4 laser that is safe to use over surgical metal hardware.
The benefits are wide-ranging. The therapy is used to repair tendon and ligament injuries. It is used to improve local blood circulation. It treats superficial injuries such as wounds and ulcers. From athletes to those seeking post-surgical recovery, the MLS laser helps with conditions both acute and chronic. If you’re suffering from repetitive motion injuries, arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, heel pain or even a degenerative joint condition, MLS laser treatment can help alleviate your pain.
