Sports Injuries and Non-Invasive Pain Management

Back and Neck Pain

Whether you’re involved in an intensive sport or simply exercise on a regular basis, back and neck injuries are a constant risk. Inflammation from constant activity or a physical trauma can result in lower back or neck pain that just doesn’t go away. A herniated disk can put pressure on your sciatic nerve, causing discomfort that radiates down your entire spine. Even if you feel these injuries don’t affect your athletic ability, leaving the issue untreated could permanently damage your body.

Laser Tech Pain Management

Until recently, the only methods available to treat spinal pain were invasive surgeries or injections. Today, the Super Traction Decompression (TDS) system makes the process quick and painless. By applying a force that gently relieves nerve compression, the TDS system allows your spinal discs to realign, all while increasing the flow of blood and beneficial nutrients to the affected area.

Knee and Shoulder Injuries

Chronic knee and shoulder pain affects individuals of all ages, but can be more common among those who regularly engage in intense physical activity. Injuries to the ligaments and tendons can cause severe, persistent discomfort that makes it difficult to play any sport. While some pain management facilities try to treat the symptoms, the only way to resolve the problem is by going to the source.

The computer-guided multi-laser therapy (CMLT) system uses cold penetration laser technology to target the precise location of your pain. Energy from the powerful lasers directly stimulates your cells to help eliminate pain, accelerate healing and decrease inflammation.

Joint Pain

Joint Pain Management at Laser Tech AZ

Joint pain and arthritis are the result of inflammation, which can be significantly worsened by activity from most sports. Acute or sudden inflammation is not concerning if it quickly dissipates, but can be the sign of a more serious issue when the pain is persistent.

Some studies have found that acupuncture is an effective treatment method for joint pain because it is able to directly target the afflicted pressure points in the body. However, the use of invasive needles is an uncomfortable experience for some patients and frightening for others. For those looking for non-invasive treatment methods, there’s the LaserNeedle system. These high-tech lasers take the place of needles and stimulate trigger points to relieve pain. Studies by Mayo Clinic have shown that the procedure is more effective than conventional metal needles.1
