Can you imagine life without pain? Two years ago, I didn’t see a future without joint pain from osteoarthritis and injury. I’ve struggled with low back pain and knee pain for many years. I’ve paid a lot of money for procedures that didn’t work. Then I learned about regenerative medicine joint injections that are anti-inflammatory and stimulate growth factors that regenerate damaged tissue. I had regenerative injections in my low back facet joints and left knee. In one month, my pain was reduced by half. By two months I was pain free. I was amazed! I am back playing tennis and can do household chores without pain. We now offer these ultrasound guided regenerative injections in our office.
Another modality we have at our office is a High Power-Pulsed Laser called the Diowave laser. What is this laser and how is it different from other treatments? High Power-Pulsed Laser Therapy (HPPLT) is classified as an actinotherapy meaning it results in a chemical and metabolic change in living tissue – this is called photo-biomodulation.
HPPLT can facilitate the healing and regeneration of living tissue. HPPLT has shown to inhibit scar tissue formation, at the same time, stimulating collagen, elastin and fibrocartilage growth. As a result, most tissues heal twice as strong as natural healing due to the lack of non-functional adhesions and scar tissue formation.
HPPLT can also heal disc pathology. The outer 1/3 of the intervertebral disc is vascularized, HPPLT can stimulate neo-capillary growth and fibroblast proliferation causing the disc to become more elastic and resilient. No other therapy or modality can achieve these desired effects.
Additionally, HPPLT activates our own regeneration of cells, as well as osteoblasts in bone. Fractures heal in half the time with less chance of non-union.
Today, High Power Pulsed Laser Therapy is considered the best and safest treatment available for nerve pathology. Photo-modulation with HPPLT causes increased intraneural blood flow and accelerated peripheral nerve regeneration – this translates into decreased numbness, tingling, pain and balance disturbances.
What kind of pain does the Diowave help? Nerve pain, arthritis (degenerative joint disease), neuropathy, non-healing wounds, and post-surgical healing to reduce pain and inflammation. Common conditions treated include: neck, shoulder and back pain, elbow and wrist pain, hip and knee pain, foot and ankle pain.
