Laser Therapy for Pain Relief

I stopped using the Biolase and am now testing out a new Laser device/system.  Class IV Laser Therapy  for pain relief are becoming more and more mainstream. I started using laser more than 5 years ago. I have more experience with warm laser than most practitioners. Laser therapy reduce pain associated with inflammation and swelling.

Sometimes I use the laser as a stand alone treatment and with other clients they require laser in conjuction with Radial Shock Wave Therapy, the Deep Muscle Stimulator (DMS), SCENAR or hands-on therapy.  I continue to recommend  stretching, corrective exercise and diet recommendations.

I also look at clients  shoe wear and arch supports(or lack of support) – sometimes wearing better or different shoes with inserts helps make a big difference in low back pain. I discuss sitting and standing posture. Prolonged sitting without taking a break is a major contributor of back and neck pain. The new recommendation for taking a break from sitting is stand-up every 20 minutes for at least two minutes– don’t let your muscles tighten up in the first place. Reduce the time spent sitting!

Please come in and feel the new Laser. Call 310-444-9393

Staying innovative as always! Best, Jeff
