Denver laser therapy for pain relief
Great for pain relief for knees, carpal tunnel syndrome, disc injuries and more
Laser therapy for pain relief works because these particular lasers reduce the inflammation in the pain area and increase the rate of healing in the area.
For this reason, laser therapy for pain relief can be used on Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (pain in your wrists), elbow pain, knee pain, back pain, and shoulder pain.
In fact, the first cold laser was introduced into America after a Ford Motor Co. study in which it was tested on Ford employees who suffered from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Today, lasers are used by professional sports teams and college teams, like the University of Florida football team, because they speed up their athletes recovery time and heal the injured tissues.
At our Denver laser therapy clinic, we use what is called a Class IV Laser, which generates more power than cold lasers.

inflammation and pain relief
When you are injured, your body will go through four stages of healing, the second of which is inflammation.
Time Magazine once called inflammation, "The Silent Killer of America." But, why would they call it that if it is part of the healing process.
Your body inflames due to swelling of an area. The body causes swelling because it brings vital nutrients to the injury site to help heal the area. Consider a ankle sprang: it swells with fluid that is bringing vital nutrients to heal the ankle.
But, what if the inflammation never went away? What if your ankle stayed constantly inflamed, as is the case with Arthritis patients, The term Arthritis literally means "joint - inflammation." The term "itis" literally means inflammation.
Constant inflammation is also the cause behind things like heart disease, which is statistically, the number one killer in America.
Inflammation is good because it is a part of the healing process of the body, but it is intended to be short term and it should be followed by two other phases of healing.
Laser Therapy helps decrease inflammation in the area of the injury, which is often what is causing your pain symptoms.
How to identify if you are suffering from carpal tunnel and whether laser therapy can work for you
Carpal Tunnel is often a condition caused by inflammation of the Median Nerve.
Do you seat at your desk at work, or do you lie in bed and start to get a tingling or numbness in your wrists and hands? Do you experience a burning sensation, or a weakness in your grip? Do you feel a like your hands are swelling up and they feel totally useless? If you have any of these symptoms you could be suffering from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
The Median Nerve is a nerve that runs down your forearm and through your wrist and communicates with your hand. If that nerve is pinched or irritated in any way, then you will start to experience those symptoms that described earlier. Patients in our Denver laser therapy clinic, often tell us that this numbness and tingling pain wakes them up in the middle of the night, disturbing their sleep and causing them to be tired and fatigued the next day.
The causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can be an impingement in the wrist, the elbow, the shoulder, even the neck. All of these places can be affecting those nerves that run down into your wrist and hand.
We have treated thousands of patients with a variety of conditions and specifically have helped patients with Carpal Tunnel at our Denver Laser Therapy clinic.
what to expect at our denver laser therapy clinic
We will find the root cause of carpal tunnel and then design a treatment plan designed specifically for you so you not only are relieved of your symptoms but also correct the problem so those symptoms do not come back.
Surgery may not be the answer to your problems. If the cause of your carpal tunnel is in your neck, or shoulders or elbows, then wrist surgery will not solve your problems. Also, there are complications to surgery such as loss of strength of your hand and wrist, infection, scar tissue formation. Even mainstream medicine states that conservative treatments should be tried first before electing to have surgery.
