Can lasers be used to treat chronic pain? - Oswego, IL - Midwest Healthcare

There are many non-invasive methods of pain relief out there that can eliminate discomfort without any recover time. At Midwest Healthcare and Physical Medicine, class 4 laser therapy is one of the treatments we use to alleviate pain and stimulate healing in our patients. Many people find that they experience immediate results after a short laser therapy session.

Using infrared lasers with a power output of over 500 milliwatts, class 4 laser therapy penetrates the affected tissues, such as muscles, ligaments and bones. Our doctors can adjust the strength of the laser according to your specific condition to get the most powerful results.

When the laser hits the tissue, this causes a chain of events that lead to the production of adenosine tri-phosphate, which the cells use for energy. This, in turn, stimulates the injured cells in order to enhance healing, improve nerve function, increase vascular activity, reduce pain and reduce inflammation. The entire process is fairly quick, taking only 5-25 minutes per session.

Our class 4 laser therapy pain relief has proven effective for a number of conditions, including:

  • degenerative disc disease
  • disc herniations or bulges
  • sciatica
  • spinal stenosis
  • peripheral neuropathy
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
