Laser & DMS Relief from Chronic Pain
When it comes to treating chronic low back pain the traditional treatments have been manipulation, physical therapy, narcotics and surgery. Today the opioid epidemic has many doctors nervous about prescribing drugs like hydrocodone or oxycodone. Surgery hasn’t always worked and has its own risks. Are there other strategies for dealing with chronic pain? An emerging approach is the Theralase laser and deep muscle stimulator (DMS) system along with a comprehensive, ‘get healthy to improve your overall wellness’ program.
Dr. Jeffrey Tucker, a west Los Angeles Chiropractor aims to change the narrative about chronic pain. Chronic pain alienates people socially. It’s difficult for others to be around people in pain. They don’t want to see you suffering and feel irritable, and get strained by little things in life.
While many Chiropractic and Physical Therapy clinics emphasize manipulation, Tucker incorporates diet and lifestyle modification along with appropriate laser therapy to improve overall health. Dr. Jeffrey Tucker in Los Angeles “We aim to help patients take steps that will keep them active and help prevent future episodes. We help motivate patients to do everything they can do to maintain or improve their health.” Tucker helps identify potential risks such as ergonomics, posture, proper weight, eating, and other risky personal behaviors. When it comes to difficult low back pain patients they shouldn’t give up if the pills don’t work. They need to know that there are effective options offered by TheraLase laser and a deep muscle therapist. These treatments can have a major impact on their quality of life. Tucker will discuss what each individual can do to improve his or her life over the next 10 years to make sure he or she doesn’t develop weak muscles, manage weight properly, and other complications that occur as we age. Chronic pain doesn’t mean having surgery until you have tried TheraLase laser and or DMS.
