Laser Therapy and Arthritis Pain Management

Arthritis is an auto-immune disease which starts in the intestinal tract (gut). It is inflammation. Arthritis can be Osteo-Arthritis which is usually contained in a single joint area such as the knee, hand, elbow etc., or Rheumatoid Arthritis which is a body-wide inflammation and affects any part of the body at any time.

Arthritis causes inflammation and inflammation causes the pain that people feel in their joints. Arthritis in hands can make it hard to open jars, grab things with your hands and even do daily chores around the house.

Arthritis can be affected by the weather. When the barometric pressure goes up or down and humidity changes, people can feel it in their swollen joints and it can make the arthritis worse or better depending on the barometric pressure.

Heat can make the joint feel good, but it also causes more swelling in the tissue surrounding the joint. Ice reduces the swelling around the joint in the tissues and when the swelling goes down the pain is lessened.

Laser therapy can reduce swelling and inflammation, which can reduce the pain in the arthritic joints in the body. Try laser today and see how much pain relief you can experience!!
