Lasers for Back Pain

Dr. John Meadors is with Utah Spine and Disc and explains some of the benefits of using laser therapy to help with back problems.

LCT-1000 Deep Tissue Laser Therapy does not require the use of drugs or surgery, and there are no known side effects or risks that may occur with other forms of treatment. In addition, it can often achieve results faster than other treatment modalities. During the treatment the patient will feel a deep soothing warmth. This pleasant sensation reassures the patient that the laser is stimulating cellular activity.

Power density indicates the degree of concentration of the power output. This property has been shown to play a major role in positive therapeutic outcomes. The LCT-1000 provides safe and effective power density levels through its Treatment Hand-piece. The Treatment Hand-piece utilizes state-of-the-art technology for exceptional beam control and larger beam spot size. If the power density is too low, the laser treatment is ineffective. If the power density is too high, the laser can cause tissue damage. The LCT-1000 is able to maintain a safe power density due to its larger spot size.

The LCT-1000 incorporates adjustable power settings up to 10W, and multiple modes of operation including Continuous wave, and pulse modes. The LCT-1000 can deliver larger dosages of therapeutic energy (up to 1,500 times more energy than other therapy lasers) and consequently reduce treatment time. Delivering a larger number of photons per area, the larger spot size of the treatment hand-piece makes treating areas faster, and allows the clinician to treat more patients with greater efficacy and improved results. Patients respond favorably to faster treatment times with increased compliance for follow-up treatment sessions. The LCT-1000 utilizes a non-contact treatment method. This non-contact treatment method makes it significantly easier for the clinician to provide treatment. Compare this to many other low level or cold lasers that require strenuous pressure applied to the surface of the skin.
