Laser Therapy for Pain Management

If you struggle with chronic pain, you’re definitely not alone. Research shows that 20% of the adult US population struggles with chronic pain. Musculoskeletal problems are often a cause of this pain, but relief is possible with laser therapy. 

Offered by Dustin Hamoy, MD, and the experienced team of practitioners at Precision Laser Join and Spine Pain Center in Glen Burnie, Maryland, laser therapy is designed to help you overcome painful conditions like back pain and sports injuries.

The practice employs some of the most advanced technologies available to help you get back on your feet and moving again, without pain. Here’s why you should consider laser therapy as part of your pain management plan.

Pain control and healing with laser technology

Lasers have been used in medical circles for many decades, but today’s advanced technology and research means lasers are more effective, efficient, and accessible than ever. Take MLS (multiwave locked system) laser therapy, for example. This innovative device reduces inflammation and musculoskeletal pain. 

The MLS laser uses dual infrared light wavelengths that penetrate deep into your skin to work on healing the bones and tissue that lie beneath. As a result, you experience improved circulation, which means healing factors such as platelets and oxygen can flood the injured area.

Your cells absorb the healing energy, initiating reactions that can lead to:

This approach is designed to gently work with your tissues to move healing along. And if you’re wondering what laser therapy feels like, the procedure doesn’t hurt a bit. 

What laser therapy can treat 

Because laser therapy is noninvasive and painless, the team at Precision Laser Joint and Spine Pain Center safely applies the technology to treat a host of painful musculoskeletal problems, including:

Laser treatments offer an effective and safe alternative to prescription drugs when it comes to chronic pain relief. Patients say the laser therapy session feels like a warm massage as it initiates healing.

How to get started with laser therapy

Laser therapy may be suggested on its own or as part of a larger treatment plan that includes physical therapy and assistive devices like splints. Most of our patients benefit from a series of MLS laser treatments, and the treatment sessions themselves are quick and easy with no downtime afterward.

You may notice a reduction in pain after the first session. As you progress through your MLS laser treatments, you should experience greater results as your swelling and pain go down and the healing begins in earnest.

Don’t continue to tolerate your pain. If you’d like to explore the many benefits of MLS laser therapy, please call our office to set up an appointment, or use this website to book online.
