Although the concept of holistic wellness is the original paradigm of all medicine, it wasn’t until after the global booms of “modernism” in the 50’s and 60’s that healthcare saw a fledgling interest in returning to its ancient roots. Since the 1970’s, science and medical systems around the world have been re-discovering and integrating methods of helping bodies heal themselves, which is an important concept in the knee pain treatment plans offered by ViscoGen™, Orlando’s leader in non-surgical pain relief. One of the most effective options used for knee pain is Class IV Laser Therapy. How does laser therapy work, and is it right for your knee pain condition?

Laser Therapy Basics

When you hear the word “laser,” you might imagine a bold beam of light, effortlessly slicing through anything it comes in contact with. While this may be an accurate description of one form of laser light, there are a variety of types of “light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation,” or LASER, and a number of wavelengths used that accomplish a variety of tasks. Class IV laser therapy is an option focused on delivering specific red and near-infrared laser light that induces a therapeutic effect within the tissues in the body. Besides managing acute and chronic pain, benefits can include:

  • Accelerated Healing

Laser therapy bio-stimulates injured tissues, decreasing inflammation markers and scar tissue and promoting tissue repair. In some cases, excess swelling and inflammation act to prolong an emergency immune response after an injury, preventing the body from healing correctly. Laser works to supports tissues’ proper functions.

  • Improved Circulation

By reducing inflammation and swelling, laser therapy encourages better blood circulation to and lymph circulation from injured areas. This can help the damaged tissues draw in much needed nutrients and oxygen, creating an optimal environment for healing.

  • Significant Pain Reduction

With reduced inflammation and better blood flow, stiffness, pain, and muscle spasms wane, which improves mobility and function in injured areas. An important aspect of a comprehensive recovery program will include methods for rebuilding strength and stability, which can only be achieved through easier, pain-free movement.

  • Works for a Variety of Injuries

Whether your joint pain is the result of wear over time, an acute injury, or repetitive stress, Laser therapy is an excellent non-surgical pain relief option because it works on a variety of tissues within the body. Laser is effective in supporting healing and pain relief for conditions including osteoarthritis, neuropathy, ligament injuries, bone spur pain, tendinitis, and more.
