Cold Laser Therapy for Knee Pain

Are you suffering from knee pain and want to avoid painful shots or joint replacement surgery?  Our FDA cleared Low level Laser Therapy (LLLT) or Cold laser Therapy, which can dramatically reduce musculoskeletal pain and inflammation as well as promote tissue repair, which will help you avoid shots or surgery.

LLLT has been used for over 35 years in Europe, Asia, Australia and Canada and was approved for use in the US in 2002. LLLT has been shown to be effective in a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. In Rheumatoid Arthritis, LLLT can benefit acute and chronic joint pain. In a review of 18 studies, patients reported an 80% success rate in relieving pain. Another study noted a pain attenuation of up to 90%. A study of 40 patients who suffered from Osteoarthritis of the Knee, showed a significant reduction in pain in 82% of the patients. In a report of 1000 treatments with LLLT for a variety of chronic pain syndromes, an overall reduction in pain levels of 70% was established.

 Cold Laser Therapy has been shown to:

* Reduce pain by causing the production of natural pain killer endorphins.

* Reduce inflammation by suppressing inflammatory enzymes that create swelling, redness, pain and heat.

* Enhance lymphatic drainage, which increases circulation and speeds healing.

* Stimulate the release of healing enzymes.

* Release tight muscles that create chronic pain, joint problems, and decreased mobility.

* Increase collagen and produces new capillaries.

*Reduce pain and inflammation, stimulates nerve regeneration and increases the immune response.

*Re-energize injured cell membranes and increases mitochondrial energy by 150%, which speeds and improves the healing process!

*Increase cellular health and energy by increasing production of ATP in cells.

What causes headaches?

People contact our clinic and say they have suffered from headaches and want to know what I can do to help them.   They have usually tried over the counter medications, and when that didn’t help, they visited their medical doctor who put them on pain killers, muscle relaxants, anti-depressants, Beta blockers, or hormone therapy.  After a while, they find they still have headaches, but now also suffer with stomach pains, constipation and nausea.

Know this – headache are not caused by a deficiency of drugs; therefore, drugs are not the answer!   We have to find the underlying cause of your headaches.  Some causes may be sinus or eye problems, vascular irregularities, food allergies, or hypoglycemia.  However, the most common cause of headaches is issues with your cervical spine (neck).  It can be as simple as muscular tension in your neck from chronic stress to as severe as a traumatic injury to your neck such as whiplash.

The cause can only be found after a thorough examination of your neck.  Once I complete my examination, I develop a specialized treatment plan based on what I find. The plan will include specific spinal adjustments with my hands or a precision instrument, which will restore normal motion to your cervical spine, decreases muscle spasms, and decreases inflammation in your joints and muscles.

It also may include Trigger Point therapy, which can relieve your headache by releasing very tight and restricted muscles in your neck. I also may recommend Acupuncture, which helps your body produce endorphins (natural pain relievers) and balances energy flow, or Cold Laser therapy, which helps decrease inflammation and allows the body to naturally heal.  I may counsel you on diet issues that might be triggering your headaches, or recommend we test and treat you for food or chemical sensitivities that can trigger headaches using our Bax Aura system.

Headaches do not have to be a way of life, and drugs are not the answer.  Give my office a call at 479-587-0227 to schedule a consultation with me to discuss way I can help you with your headaches.

 

 

Knee Pain Relief?

“ I am 71 years old and have suffered from knee pain for the last 10 years. My doctor diagnosed me with severe arthritis and is recommending knee replacement surgery. Is there anything you can do to help me? I would really like to avoid surgery if I can.”

Answer: Yes, I can help you! We offer Cold Laser Therapy or LLT (Low Level Laser Therapy) which can have a profound effect on arthritis pain. Cold Laser Therapy has been tested for 40 years, had over 2000 papers published on it, and has been shown to decrease inflammation and stiffness, relieve pain, and promote tissue repair. The first cold laser received FDA clearance in the U.S. in 2002 and in the last few years has cleared Cold Laser Therapy for treatment of a variety of medical conditions including: carpal tunnel syndrome, neck pain, shoulder pain, low back pain, joint pain, muscle pain and acceleration of wound healing. We have used cold laser therapy on all of those conditions with great success!

“I had a torn meniscus disk in my right knee and had surgery to repair it in June, 2012. I continued to have pain and not trust my knee to support me. After going back to the doctor 7 months after the surgery, I was told, ‘it takes time to heal.’ After a year and still no relief, I had Dr. D. Jean Gibson perform Cold Laser Therapy on my right knee. After just one visit, it was awesome…not near the pain. I went in for a second session of the Cold Laser Therapy, no pain at all now. It was quick and painless. All I can say is, That is an awesome treatment. If I ever have pain elsewhere, I will definitely try the Cold Laser Therapy! Thank you Dr. Jean!”
