In the United States, it is estimated that 56 million individuals suffer from some form of chronic pain annually. The prevalence of chronic pain accounts for the greatest number of work absenteeism than any other group of diseases. Often, people with acute or chronic pain will quickly turn to over-the-counter or prescription pain medications for relief. However, the FDA recently issued strict warnings regarding the misuse and overdosing of pain medications due to severe complications and there is a growing concern amongst physicians regarding the side-effects associated with prescription pain medication. In fact, 40 Americans die from prescription painkiller abuse everyday
and overdoses of opioid prescription drugs now kill more people in the U.S. than do overdoses from heroin and cocaine combined.
Fortunately, there is another way to treat pain without the side effects! Natural Health Practices offers treatments with the PL-Touch Erchonia laser – a FDA-approved low level laser that effectively combats pain using the power of light!
The PL-Touch is a non-invasive, painless, sterile, drug-free laser that speeds the healing process by encouraging cell regeneration. Treatment with the laser also improves range of motion and decreases inflammation. Erchonia is the global leader in low level laser healthcare applications and was the first to receive FDA market clearance for the treatment of chronic pain. Erchonia lasers have also been proven effective for the treatment of post-operative pain, body contouring, acne, and cellulite reduction.
With chiropractic care, proper nutrition, and the Erchonia PL-Touch laser, pain doesn’t stand a chance!
