Low Back Pain

In the April 2020 edition of Lasers Surg. Med Journal, Sheiane et al report that using Laser (I use the same device called MultiRadiance on my patients) decreased prostaglandin E2 levels (PGE2) which are associated with inflammation. These PGE2 are strong inflammatory chemicals that cause pain in the body. The laser light therapy has an analgesic effect in patients with Low Back Pain.

Low Back Pain is an awful experience and I’ve been using different types of laser light therapy in my practice for more than 9 years. Laser light or photo-biomodulation therapy (PBMT) continues to be a non-painful, safe and effective alternative to costly invasive and drug treatments. Low Back Pain patients deserve to try laser.

Decreasing pain intensity in patients with musculoskeletal disorders often starts with reducing inflammation levels. Call me at 310-444-9393 and I tell you about the therapies I have available to help you with Low Back Pain.


Core Training: why 10 minutes a day can save you weeks of pain

Many patients come to see me feeling pain but without having a specific trauma or injury that they recall. This type of pain can be attributed to one thing: a lack of basic core muscle strength. Many people begrudge any time spent working out or they just don’t know what to do even if they did make the time. Yet about 10 minutes spent performing movement therapy or corrective exercise 5-6 times per week can be enough to help you prevent an injury and avoid low back pain. 

So in healing injuries – I suggest all of my clients integrate into their daily routine a minimum of 10 minutes of foam rolling tight muscles (self myofascial release),  stretching, and some floor exercises – these are the kind of exercises that you can do without equipment at home, on your own.

The key is being consistent and exercising daily – and progressively making the exercises harder. In my article on core training I give you full details how to get started.
