Knee Pain Treatment
Low level laser therapy is becoming an increasingly popular treatment for knee pain because it is non-invasive, non-drug and promotes healing. Surgical intervention is one, and sometimes unavoidable, option for patients, however, at Quantum we have seen patients delay surgery by years in some cases. Not only can low level laser therapy possibly prolong the need for surgery, other benefits include a strong anti-inflammatory effect together with its ability to promote tissue regeneration.
Typical knee pain treatments include anti-inflammatory medication, rest and supports. However, low level laser therapy has been shown in studies to help reduce pain intensity and improve movement in moderate knee osteoarthritis. In addition, patients can often start to see changes within a few treatments.
