Arthritis

 

There are over 900,000 people living with a form of Arthritis in Ireland. Finally a new and innovative home treatment has arrived in Ireland which is proven to safely and significantly help you manage your pain and inflammation yourself at home.

 

Arthritis is a term given to a number of different conditions that causes pain, stiffness and inflammation in the joints all over the body. We will look at some of the more common types of arthritis, the cause of the symptoms and how the Rx Laser device can help you effectively treat these painful joint conditions. Arthritis can be a very debilitating condition which stops people from doing the things they enjoy. Depending on prescription medications and injections to manage your pain and inflammation comes with many short and long term side effects but finally a new treatment has come to the market to help you avoid this and take back control of symptoms yourself at home.

Osteoarthritis

This is the most common type of arthritis and symptoms usually appear gradually over time, affecting the smooth cartilage lining of the joint, leading in an increase in pain and stiffness. The most common joints affected are the knee, hip, spine and hands. The joint loses cartilage (wear and tear) and then it becomes painful and inflamed very easily which then causes the joint to get inflamed, stiff and painful which then begins to affect a persons day to day activities.

When people have osteoarthritis, the tissue around the joint becomes stressed, which in turn causes an inflammatory reaction and impacts its ability to oxygenate. The Rx Laser technology allows for the laser to penetrate deeply into your painful arthritic joint which causes a number of cellular reactions. When you use the Rx Laser device on your specific area of pain it releases a series of specific natural chemical reactions which is why people experience such great results from this treatment. The regular use of the Rx Laser causes the following cellular reactions:

  • Opioid Neurotransmitter Production = Pain Relief
  • Anti-inflammatory Cytokine Production = Joint swelling and inflammation reduction
  • Increased ATP production in the mitochondria = Improved tissue healing

Remember!  The Rx Laser devices are extremely safe and easy to use

A brief look at what the research says

Check out some of the high quality research studies carried out which shows the benefits of low level laser therapy for osteoarthritis. Also, check out on the testimonial page some of the stories of people who have found the Rx Laser device extremely beneficial.

British Medical Journal (2019)

  • Systematic review on the use of low level laser therapy on 1,063 people with knee osteoarthritis
  • Research summary: “ Overall, pain was significantly reduced with low level laser therapy vs placebo“
  • “We conclude that low level laser therapy reduces pain and disability in knee osteoarthritis“

Australian Journal Of Physiotherapy

  • A systematic review of low level laser therapy with location-specific doses for pain from chronic joint disorders
  • Reviewed 565 patients with long-standing joint pain
  • Research summary: “ Low level laser therapy significantly reduces pain and improves health status in chronic joint disorders “

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis is long term condition that causes pain, stiffness and swelling in the joints. The condition usually affects the hands, wrist and feet. It is an auto-immune disease, which means the bodies own immune system attacks the cells that line your joints. This is what causes the joints to become painful and stiff.

It is important to note that there is no known cure for RA, however it is possible for people to maintain an active and pain free life if their symptoms are managed well. The main treatment for this is through strong prescription medications, which come with many side effects. The Rx Laser device is an extremely helpful tool for people to have to manage their pain, stiffness and swelling themselves at home. It is also a great device to have at home when those flare ups occur.

The device causes a photochemical reaction which leads to a release of a number of beneficial chemicals within the joint that you experience pain and stiffness.

  • Opioid Neurotransmitter Production = Pain relief
  • Anti-inflammatory Cytokine Production = Joint swelling and inflammation disappears

Remember using the Rx Laser is extremely safe, easy to use and you can use it on a number of areas of the body each day.

Cochrane review:

  • Cochrane Review is considered one of the highest levels of research available
  • Review on the use of low level laser therapy on 220 people with rheumatoid arthritis
  • Studies showed that laser therapy decreased both pain and stiffness more than the placebo and also increased hand flexibility
  • The length of morning stiffness reduced on average by 28 minutes
  • Research summary: “ LLLT could be considered for short-term treatment for relief of pain and morning stiffness for RA patients, particularly since it has few side-effects “

Low-level laser therapy in different stages of rheumatoid arthritis: a histological study:

“We can conclude that LLLT is able to modulate inflammatory response both in early as well as in late progression stages of RA“

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a long term condition that causes pain all over the body. In addition to widespread pain, other common symptoms include increased muscle sensitivity, stiffness, tiredness and low mood. It is a common condition with some estimates suggesting that 1 in 20 people may be affected by the condition to some degree.

There is currently no known cause or cure for fibromyalgia but it is thought that it is due to abnormal levels of certain chemicals in the brain which affects the way the central nervous systems works. The key to living an active and pain free life is managing the symptoms as they present.

The Rx Laser uses technology that has been shown to alter the chemical reaction within the painful and tender muscles which is why so many people with fibromyalgia find laser therapy so beneficial.

Pain Physician Journal (2019)

  • Low level laser therapy for Fibromyalgia. A systematic review and meta-analysis
  • Review on 325 people with Fibromyalgia v’s placebo
  • The analysis showed that people undergoing low level laser therapy demonstrated significantly greater improvements in pain severity, number of tender points, fatigue, stiffness and depression
  • Research conclusion: “ Low level laser therapy is an effective, safe and well-tolerated treatment for Fibromyalgia “
