Pain Relief with Laser Acupuncture Treatments
Most people know that acupuncture can help with pain management. And while some are still dubious of results, a comparative literature review was recently published from the scientific community proving the effectiveness of acupuncture for the treatment of numerous illnesses. This review compiled data from meta analyses and systematic reviews (the highest form of evidence available) with overwhelming results.
Of the conditions identified, strong evidence supported the effectiveness of acupuncture for 8 conditions (including headaches and migraines, knee osteoarthritis, chronic low back pain, postoperative pain, and more), and positive evidence supported the use of acupuncture for another 38 conditions. Most of these were pain conditions ranging from plantar heel pain to pain as a result of cancer and cancer treatments.
How is acupuncture an effective pain relief? The insertion of hair-thin needles into the body helps promote blood circulation and decrease inflammation. Studies show acupuncture also helps modify endorphin release, the body’s natural pain relieving molecules.

What are cold lasers? Cold lasers are a form of low level laser therapy (LLLT) designed to reduce pain and inflammation and enhance tissue healing, both in hard and soft tissues, including muscles, ligaments, and bones. It increases oxygenation of tissues and allows injured or damaged cells to absorb photons of light, speeding up the healing process.
