Pain in your back can have crippling effects on every aspect of your life. Daily activities become difficult or impossible. Sitting and standing can become uncomfortable, and pain can become a constant presence throughout your day. Even healthy sleep patterns are influenced by back pain. As you age, back pain has the capacity to compromise your ability to remain active and be independent.
By removing the build-up of scar tissue, improving blood circulation to the affected area, and increasing cellular energy, laser therapy can help heal the underlying problem by treating the injury at its most basic and cellular level.
Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT or LLLT) can help put your back pain in the past, allowing you to perform your daily activities without discomfort. Laser Therapy eliminates the pain in your back so you can get back to your life.
"Due to the pain in my lower back from a herniated disc I had to reduce my hours at work. This injury happened over a year ago and I was finding it hard to stand and function everyday due to the pain and stiffness in my lower back. I couldn't walk any major distance or I would need to sit or lay flat. The pain was so bad at times that I didn't think it could get worse. I needed to take medication daily to make it through. My chiropractor told me about laser therapy and recommended it to relieve my pain when physio and WCB rehabilitation therapy did not work. I was amazed that just after a few treatments I was starting to feel a bit better. It was not long after I was able to stop taking medication for the pain. By the time I was nearing the recommended amount of treatments I was starting to function daily well and get back to my regular activities without any pain."
"I went to Okanagan Laser Solutions, not completely convinced that the treatments would work for me. Sometime during the first seven treatments, the sciatica pain down my left leg disappeared, along with the pain in the lumbar region of my lower back. For the first time in twenty odd years, I was pain free! All that remained was a bruised feeling for a bit in my low back that I treated with ice packs. I have completed fourteen sessions up to date and I feel great! Dr.Thiel and the staff at Okanagan Laser Solutions are the most professional people that I have come across in all the years that I have been taking treatments. I would recommend this clinic to anyone in pain that I meet."
