Fibromyalgia treatment with low level laser therapy, or cold laser therapy, helps to manage the symptoms of the condition by desensitising the central nervous system. Laser therapy can also be administered without touching the skin of patients where required, making it a tolerable treatment for patients who are highly sensitised to touch.
Treatment duration can typically be longer than other less complex conditions, especially as many patients present with pain throughout their bodies. Common areas of pain we treat at Quantum include the back of the head, shoulders, upper chest, hips and knees. Whilst more studies are needed there is growing evidence that low level laser therapy is an effective therapeutic method to treat fibromyalgia.
