With 3.85million Australians affected, Arthritis pain is a common disease our patients at Adelaide Cold Laser seek treatment for. It is the major cause of disability and chronic pain in Australia.
Arthritis can refer to more than 100 conditions but the most common include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout and ankylosing spondylitis. Primarily an inflammatory condition, arthritis can respond well to low level laser therapy (or cold laser) due to its anti-inflammatory effect.
‘Laser light can unblock the inflammatory processes that have become stuck and chronic over time and quickly move it to a normal resolution. This leads to a decrease in swelling, pain and inflammation.
Dr. Norman Doidge, The Brain’s Way of Healing
There is scientific proof that laser therapy can help reduce pain and swelling particularly in the hands of people with rheumatoid arthritis.
Standard arthritis treatment may include drugs and even surgery however low level laser therapy is safe, non-invasive and has no side-effects. Whilst arthritis is not yet curable, laser therapy can reduce arthritis pain as well as desensitise the nerve irritability and patient’s dependence on medication.
