Class IV Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a non-invasive technique to help reduce pain and inflammation. Laser therapy can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs. This pain relief treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery.

Laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the condition being treated. Laser therapy treatments must be administered directly to skin, as laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing. You will feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered.

Abstract

A case study of a 75 year old female who presents with severe intractable pain in both feet, loss of plantar feet sensation and lower leg, intermittent loss of balance and dizziness for the past 3 years . Patient was referred to skilled out patients physical therapy by her primary care physician after a traditional pharmacological therapy and previous physical therapy failed to control her symptoms. After a comprehensive evaluation a multi-modal treatment protocol was chosen which involved neuro-mobilization techniques, balance reeducation, micro-current point stimulation (MPS), and anodyne therapy. Patient had a slow but good progress with the protocol and pain was significantly reduced in 5 visits and by 12th visit her balance, dizziness and sensation was restored 75%. This case study provides supportive evidence that a multi-modal intervention protocol is effective in controlling pain, improve sensation, improve balance and to prevent falls. Patient was able to maintain her progress after 10 months.
