Finally... arthritis pain relief using laser therapy has arrived. Medical laser therapy has become an integral part of many clinical procedures, including deep tissue therapy. Using 10 watts of restorative power, the laser is used for therapeutic applications such as joint pain relief and many other chronic conditions.
FDA-approved in March of 2007, this laser therapy is known as photobiomodulation, which delivers an effective therapeutic dosage using longer wavelengths and higher power output for rapid, concentrated penetration to deeper tissue. It emits energy to provide topical heating for the purpose of elevating tissue temperature. It provides temporary relief of minor muscle and joint pain, muscle spasm, pain and stiffness associated with rheumatoid arthritis, and enables relaxation of the muscle tissue to temporarily increase local blood circulation.

Laser therapy is used to treat tissue that is damaged and poorly oxygenated because of swelling, trauma, or inflammation. It works by flooding the tissues with photons, energizing the damaged cells through Adenosine triphosphate production (ATP), and increasing circulation to the painful areas. When inflammation is diminished, pain is reduced.
Laser therapy initiates a biochemical cascade of events that inhibits the inflammatory cycle, relieves joint pain and inflammation associated with a variety of conditions, and reduces the destructive forces within the cells.
A typical regimen may consist of three treatments spaced every other day for the first week, two treatments the following week, and one treatment in week three.
