It has long been known that laser therapy can stimulate the bodies anti-inflammatory response and promote healing of injured tissue and joints. Interstitial and Intra-articular Laser Therapy differs from other “laser hype” procedures by being the first medical grade laser to be able penetrate the skin deep enough to reach spinal discs and other joints within the body. With most “laser” treatments, the laser is only able to penetrate the first few layers of the dermis (skin) and never reaches the affected spinal disc or joint. With this technique, damaged joints can be irradiated directly, resulting in significantly improved therapeutic results. This laser treatment is painless and requires no anesthesia.
Pain Physicians NY are the first US based practice to implement this form of therapy. This therapy has been shown to effective for many conditions, including:
- Herniated discs
- Spinal Stenosis
- Osteoarthritis of the knee, hip and ankle
- Deep tendon inflammation and sprain
- Scar tissue build up after surgery
