A day in the life of a chronic pain sufferer can be frustrating, to say the least. For most patients, their chronic pain is something they must deal with silently. They look healthy on the outside, but those closest to them understand that at the end of the day, they’re fighting a battle with their bodies that the outside world doesn’t see. If you’re reading this and suffer from chronic pain, whether it’s chronic back pain, sciatica, joint pain, neuropathy, arthritis, or something else – we’re here to tell you that we understand and there is hope.
We see you. We know that you’ve likely spent more time and money than you care to admit on pain doctors, specialists, tests, and invasive treatments – all for the pain to return a few weeks or months later. They all agree that sure, something’s wrong. You’ve been diagnosed with this or that. You can predict the weather with your body. You can’t stand for more than a few hours or maybe even just a few minutes at a time. You can’t play with your kids or grandkids like you once did. Your quality of life isn’t what it was before the pain.
Maybe the most irritating part though is the unsolicited advice you get from well-meaning friends and family. This is why most suffer in silence. If you mention your pain, it seems like people come out of the woodwork to tell you their best advice on how to fix it. You know your body. You know if the pain pills, the injections, and especially the surgery are not what you want. You know that if someone asks you one more time if you’ve been drinking enough water, you might scream. And how are you supposed to stay on top of a workout routine when you hurt all the time?
What is Chronic Pain?
Chronic pain is defined by the Cleveland Clinic as pain that last months or years in any part of the body. It interferes with daily life and can lead to depression and anxiety. It takes a toll on us physically as well as mentally. It’s a progressive disease, meaning it gets worse over time, and is best treated with that in mind. According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, in a 2019 survey, about 20.4 percent of adults in the U.S. had chronic pain, with about 7.4 percent suffering from “high-impact” chronic pain that impacted their daily life or work activities.
At LaserTech, we have a catchphrase, “if you’ve tried it all, give LaserTech a call.” It’s cute and it rhymes. But we mean it. We know that when it comes to your chronic pain, you’ve likely been through the wringer. We pride ourselves on treating the cause of the pain, not the symptom. We don’t believe in putting a Band-Aid on your pain. When you just take a pain pill or get an injection, these are just masking your pain, allowing it to progress without protection. We have the tools and technology to address and treat the causes concurrently that are typically involved with chronic pain. Our experienced staff takes the time to listen to you and your needs. Our goal is to improve your condition so that you can really feel better because you are better.
Our Chronic Pain Treatment Technologies
Cold Low-Level Laser Therapy
This is really cool science-based technology with more than 2,600 peer-reviewed research articles investigating the effects on both humans and animals. Our Computer Multi-Laser Therapy (CMLT) system allows us to reduce your chronic pain, whether it’s neurological or musculoskeletal, by promoting fast tissue and nerve healing – all without any incisions, sutures, drugs, or invasive procedures. Cold laser therapy aims to not only reduce your pain but also to help your body actually heal and get better. Our cold laser therapy helps with all sorts of chronic pain from head to toe, from shoulder pain to knee pain, to back pain and everything in between.
Spinal Decompression Therapy
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a high-tech form of traction that works by reducing the amount of pressure being placed on your spine and opening up space for your nerves to comfortably function. This minimizes chronic pain associated with bulging or herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and other spine-related conditions. Our Spinal Decompression DRX9000 has been highly effective in helping patients find pain relief over the years and has helped many avoid surgery.
Electronic Never Biomodulator
Our Electronic Nerve Biomodulator (ENB) works to improve the communication of your nerves, rather than dull or numb them, like medication or nerve block injections do. A numb, underperforming nerve is not normal and may not be safe. The goal of our ENB is to retrain and modulate nerve transmission and improve nerve function. This can be especially helpful for those with sciatica or neuropathy.
Every Chronic Pain Case is Unique
Every case is unique. Your chronic pain is not the same as someone else’s. Each person who comes to our office requires the full attention of our doctor to listen, assess, and make changes in settings and protocols throughout treatment based on how you’re responding. There is no one-size-fits-all with chronic pain. We have an arsenal of pain-relieving technologies with which we’re able to tackle your chronic pain at its source. Having this noninvasive approach to chronic pain management that minimizes your need for addictive pain medication, injections, and surgeries is so valuable.
Don’t take our word for it though. Here’s just one patient’s testimonial. You can read more of our five-star reviews here.
