Laser therapy could be the “missing link” in some forms of neuropathy treatment!
Laser has been around since about 1960 or so when a now famous scientist produced these “focused light beams” in the laboratory. Lasers have been used in medicine for many years.
These ultra focused light beams can be used at high intensity to seal tissue, aid surgeons dentists and dermatologists in their daily work with patients. And at lower intensity, they have had applications in physical therapy and neuropathy treatment for some time too.
Now, lasers are everywhere, everything from CD Players, printers and measuring devices to military weapons. I’m sure you may even have seen a few of your own!
So what does laser therapy have to do with neuropathy treatment?
Well, it could be that laser therapy is the “missing link” in some forms of neuropathy treatment!
As we discuss together frequently, no neuropathy treatment works 100 percent of the time. And that is a key point to remember. We also have talked about effective neuropathy treatment being the result of working only with highly trained neuropathy treatment professionals.
And nowhere is this more apparent than in laser treatments for neuropathy. Even amongst laser neuropathy treatment experts there’s often is disagreement as to what makes good neuropathy treatment.
But some techniques in laser, neuropathy treatment equipment are looking very promising!
One of our basic attempts when treating neuropathy is to do what ever can help safely and effectively boost your nerve cells use of “energy”.
Well, along with proper nutrition and electrotherapy, laser may aid energy production in damaged nerves.
The way this may happen is fascinating, but way beyond the scope of this column.
But the good news is more experience and research including our own will help us find even better neuropathy treatments than we have available today!
Always remember though, we go to great lengths every day to be sure your NeuropathyDR Clinician is up to date in the latest, and best forms of neuropathy treatment for you and your family!
