Cold Laser light is a great approach to treatment. Laser Light penetrates the skin and activates cellular mechanisms of anti-inflammation and pain control. This treatment has been used safely for 30-40 years. It will not hurt but there may be a slight tingling sensation during treatment.
TENS = Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. It is an effective form of pain management. It is painless, and can produce significant results for most pain conditions. It works by stimulating the smaller nerve fibres which will then block pain. The stimulation will also produce endorphins which are the body’s natural way of pain relief. This will result in muscle relaxation and better circulation.
It is a combination of both LASER and TENS. Patients can benefit from both treatments or LASER only!
An average is about 2 minutes per treatment point.
It is great for patients who need relief from common painful conditions; also for patients who are not able to tolerate pain medications.
