Reduce Chronic Pain with Laser Therapy


This article will help you understand how you can reduce chronic pain with laser therapy. Our clinic is one of the first to provide class 4 laser therapy to help people reduce chronic pain with laser therapy. You may be one of the 50% of the UK population who suffers from Chronic Pain. To make it much more specific, and quite frankly, worrying, that’s just under 28 million adults based on data from the best available published stories. Also, with the ageing population rising, this figure is very likely to increase.

There are twelve studies across the Internet that demonstrate a chronic pain trend towards increasing prevalence with increasing age from 14.3% in 18-25 years old, to 62% in the over 75 age group. However, the prevalence of chronic pain in young people (18-39 year-olds) may be as high as 30%. In this article, our Chronic Pain specialists summarise their latest understanding of how to reduce chronic pain with laser therapy to ensure people like you how are reading this article are chronic pain-free as quickly as possible. If you are a part of the 80% of the general population who are suffering from frustrating back pain, or you have been experiencing consistent chronic pain for many years with no solution after a numerous number of treatments, you are not alone. In fact, chronic pain (pain that has been persistent for more than 12 weeks) roughly affects 30% of the population according to a recent study. There is nothing worse than your injury or annoying pain holding you back from doing the activities you love (for example playing with your grandchildren) or simply enjoying life without any issues. However, thankfully there is a new piece of equipment that arrived in the UK a few years ago which has proved to be one of the most advanced systems for healing and to speed up recovery for those experiencing chronic pain in particular. Low-Level Laser Therapy has been proven to be a safe and efficient way to help speed up the natural process of healing for those suffering from chronic pain to help you get back on your feet faster than ever before and to stop these niggling pains and injuries from coming back to haunt you later on in the future. The typical standard advice we see displayed on the Internet for those who suffer from chronic pain is RICE: Rest, Ice, Compress, Elevate. That’s not to say it’s a waste of time – there’s a good amount of evidence displayed on the Internet these days which support this approach, and the RICE advice still stands. However, we’re in 2017 now, which means more advanced technology is now available to those who are fed up with getting no results from the treatment they have had in the past and want to get better quickly. LLLT provides a useful modality to support, speed up, and enhance natural healing methods. In this article, we look at how Low-Level Laser Therapy can help with getting you back to a life without chronic pain, as well as using this service alongside Physiotherapy or other therapy services to speed up your recovery.

Getting no results with your current treatment to reduce chronic pain

Are you looking to improve the amount of time you are recovering for and reduce the pain you may be facing? Low-Level Laser Therapy is a service that isn’t usually shouted about from the rooftops of hospitals or from local GP’s. In today’s world, the typical human faces a lot of demand which is usually placed on the human frame, causing it to be deconditioned/misaligned due to sedentary living. Ultimately, this leads to terrible back pain and reoccurring injuries. Those who may wake up one morning with an injury or severe pain usually visit their Physiotherapy once/twice a week for around 2/3 months in hope that this pain will just go away with exercises. However, those with chronic pain are still experiencing this pain after those 3 months with treatment, so why isn’t it working? This approach was fine 10-15 years ago, but with this innovative piece of equipment, the goal for Laser Therapy is to rebuild the injured tissues as soon as possible, and to pop you out of this pain bubble you have been in for 3 months or more and to get you back to normal life as quickly as possible.

What those with chronic pain think of our clinic…

After 18 months of chronic hamstring troubles, a friend recommended I see Perfect Balance Clinic. I’d torn my hamstring the year before and despite giving it recovery time I was now aggravating it every time I trained. I’d not found any specialist that could help get me back to health and diagnose why I was getting recurring pain. My first appointment with Perfect Balance Clinic was a breath of fresh air. They brought a totally new view of my injuries and the treatment that I would respond best to. First and foremost they pinpointed the problem and broke down the rehab I would need in order to start seeing an improvement. Their knowledge and experience were extensive, understanding illnesses and bio-mechanical challenges I have had since childhood. I feel I’ve found a unique specialist that can truly work with my injuries and as such, I’ve seen tremendous improvement in my hamstring and running performance. I now see Perfect Balance Clinic as and when I need to just to keep any niggles under control and work on weaknesses.

Perfect Balance Clinic has helped me after I thought I could not be helped. After sustaining a back injury whilst working as a Stunt Performer on X-Men First Class, I tried for 5 years to get rid of the pain in my lower back without true success. It became chronic and left me in a dark place. After visiting Stephen, I made huge progress. I have since this time not hesitated to send other Stunt Performers and A-list film celebrities his way. Thank you for your help Perfect Balance Clinic.

Reduce Chronic Pain with Laser Therapy and other therapies

Low-Level Laser Therapy has been around and used by many clinicians for around 40 years, but has only been approved in the UK a few years ago. Thankfully, we are proud to be one of the clinics in the UK to have access to LLLT. The amazing advantage which Laser Therapy has is how it can be used to treat almost every condition which the general population faces. From joint conditions and bone fractures to ongoing muscle injuries that aren’t going away after 3 months of treatment. Those who regularly attend Physiotherapy or other therapy service appointments would benefit from an approach to reduce chronic pain with laser therapy also. LLLT is a breakthrough treatment that can speed up the healing process for patients and get them returning to the activities which they love doing, as well as keeping them away from our clinic entrances (that’s a good thing – when you don’t come back it means we’ve done a good job and you feel better!). Laser Therapy can be performed by our top specialists here at the clinic. You may feel the improvement in your condition (usually pain reduction) after the very first treatment. Sometimes you will not feel an improvement until after a number of treatments. This does not mean that nothing is happening. Each treatment is cumulative and results are often felt after 3 or 4 sessions. We have to say this, but in reality, most people detect a notable difference after the first 2 sessions in symptoms they may have been experiencing for years prior to treatment.
