High-Intensity Laser Therapy Improves Chronic Pain, Reduces Opioid Dependence: Anesthesiology News
According to Paul F. White, PhD, MD, a consultant in the Department of Anesthesiology at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, in Los Angeles and a member of the advisory board of Anesthesiology News, Scientific evidence has been accumulating over the last 10 years regarding the usefulness of high-intensity laser therapy (HILT) for the treatment of a variety of acute and chronic pain syndromes. This nonpharmacologic therapy may also prove to be an effective approach for reducing dependence on prescription opioid medication, thereby helping to resolve the current opioid crisis in this country.
HILT laser should not be confused with cold laser or low level laser. Although this form of laser therapy can be effective for many conditions, increasing evidence shows that high-intensity laser provides a better treatment option for many. We have been using HILT laser in our practice locations for over 8 years now with terrific results- 85% to 90% efficacy. Click here for the article:
