The Healing Power of Laser in Neuropathy Treatment

The fact of the matter is, recent studies have indicated that properly-applied laser therapy can measurably improve nerve function in some cases of peripheral neuropathy.

Much has been written about the use of lasers in medicine. You probably know that lasers are everywhere, from supermarket checkouts, to barcode readers, to common devices we employ in our homes and automobiles every day.

Just as all neuropathy treatment devices are not the same, neither are all lasers.

You may also be familiar with the fact lasers that are used in surgery. These lasers, in particular, are used as surgical tools, and now are commonplace.

You probably are also familiar with laser in the science-fiction realm. Lasers have been around now for over 50 years. You have probably seen footage of both fictional and real lasers used for destructive purposes. However, much lower levels of focused light beams, such as in laser therapy, can have profound healing mechanisms.

I think it was first Star Trek back in the ‘60s where laser and light therapy was insinuated as a healing mechanism.

The reality is, we have come such a long way with LLLT (Low Level Laser Therapy) and LED (Light Emitting Diodes) that these devices are much more commonplace, and research on their effectiveness is growing at an exponential rate. But what does this have to do with good neuropathy treatment?

The fact of the matter is, recent studies have indicated that properly-applied laser therapy can measurably improve nerve function in some cases of peripheral neuropathy.

In our clinics, we use laser for two reasons. Number one, to stimulate the healing process, and, number two, to reduce the pain of things like spinal stenosis, disc degeneration, peripheral neuropathy, and, yes, even chronic pain.

Although the actual explanation is highly technical, the application is simple: a highly focused, painless beam of light is directed at target tissue at a set power, usually for very short intervals. Based upon the wavelength of light, we have a good idea of the targeted tissue effects.

Although not a quick fix, studies are showing significant improvements in as little as 12 treatments in those who suffer from peripheral neuropathy and some forms of chronic pain.

Just as all neuropathy treatment devices are not the same, neither are all lasers.
