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. Other conditions that can be treated with this therapy include arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and tendonitis.
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 the laser!
