Laser Gout Treatment
Cold Laser therapy
Cold Laser therapy is a treatment modality which uses red and near infra-red light to improve healing rates.
It was first developed in 1967 but has only more recently been used extensively in injury and pain management clinics. Laser therapy is cleared by the FDA for pain and stiffness treatment associated with arthritis, inflammation treatment, and for increasing circulation. It's safe and efficient. Explanations of the analgesic effects of laser stimulation are well documented.
Our high power gout laser therapy (Class IIIB technology) uses specific wavelengths of light that have following documented substantial effects:
decrease acute and chronic pain
increase blood flow
cell stimulation and cell reproduction
Laser photons penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. As a result of exposure to laser photons, the cells of tendons, ligaments, and muscle repair themselves faster. As inflammation is reduced, the pain subsides very quickly.
There are no known harmful side effects, even during long-term usage.
The therapy is completely safe, does not emit heat, is non-invasive and has no known contraindications.
Our lasers are painless. Most patients report no sensation at all while receiving laser therapy.
Treatments (per location) do average only a few minutes. Many patients with high levels of acute pain experience relief after a few treatment.
The effects of laser therapy are cumulative.
At The Gout Clinic, we use pulsed lasers with a focus system and super pulsed lasers.
The advantage of a focus system for treatment during a gout attack is that the patient is in no contact with the laser.
The Advantages of high-power Super Pulsed Lasers:
improved tissue penetration
improved therapeutic effect
higher safety (high photonics density without heating of tissue).
The second super pulsed laser in de video has a peak power of 80 Watt. Or 16000 times the power of a common CW 5 mW medical Laser!
