Become Involved in Your Own Health Care!

Pain is the primary reason people seek medical treatment in the United States. The majority of this pain occurs in the musculoskeletal system. It would seem essential that medical professionals have in depth knowledge of this subject.  If not, your doctor might fall back on old standards of care for chronic muscle and joint pain, such as anti inflammatory meds, possible antidepressants, and sleep medications. None of those “cures” get to the underlying cause of pain, and all have toxic side effects. Did you know that anti-inflammatory drugs inhibit the healing and tissue regeneration process? Nonsteroidal ani-inflammatory drugs, the number one prescribed drug for chronic pain, can cause tremendous damage to tissues. Why not try myofascial release, or trigger point therapy?

In 1998, a study was completed to assess the competency of recent medical school graduates in musculoskeletal medicine. 82% of the recent graduates failed the exam. The study went on to report that the average time spent in medical education in orthopedics was 2 weeks. One third of all medical school graduates had no orthopedic education. Because the results of the study were so shocking, it was repeated in 2002. A passing score was set at 70%. 78% of recent medical graduates failed to demonstrate basic competency in musculoskeletal medicine.

Needless to say, it may be very difficult to find help for your lower back pain, muscle pain, or joint pain. I am not a doctor, but I have found many ways in my studies and experiments (on myself, friends, and animals) to relieve pain using nutrition, supplements, low level laser therapy, myofascial release,  and sports massage. Not only can pain be eliminated, but wellness and disease prevention can all be achieved with safe lifestyle changes.

The Benefits of Cold Laser Treatment

Cold lasers have a localized therapeutic effect, but they also effect the whole body. The body produces anti-inflammatory substances, such as cortisol, which are significantly increased during a laser treatment. The levels reach a peak about four hours after treatment, and remain raised for about four days! Enhancing the body’s natural healing process is so easy with cold laser support.

Cortisol is essential for almost every function of your body! This crucial hormone normalizes other hormones, glucose metabolism, as well as the immune system. Cortisol is required to fight inflammation in the body. If your body is not producing enough cortisol, inflammation can rage through the body, producing the pain of fibromyalgia and many other health issues.

Lasers are used to reduce inflammation. They can be used to reduce the inflammation present in swelling. Lasers are also used to speed up wound healing. Lasers can also relieve pain through a mechanism similar to acupuncture (without the needles!).

The great thing about cold lasers is that they are:

  • Non-invasive
  • Non-toxic
  • Easily applied
  • Highly effective

I have found that in acute cases, lasers are most effective when used daily until the pain resolves. For less acute cases every three days works well.

Cold Laser Therapy stimulates the mitochondria into hyperactivity, in turn, generating more energy than usual for cells to repair themselves. With the extra boost of energy, cells perform more efficiently and effectively. The result is enhanced healing.
