May 12 is World Fibromyalgia Awareness Day.
If you’re living with fibromyalgia, a new offering here at New Leaf Chiropractic & Wellness Center in Seattle’s Madison Park neighborhood may help relieve your pain. Linked below are in-depth details about a study that looked at the effects of Laser Therapy on Disease Impact and Function in Women with Fibromyalgia.
The study provides evidence that laser heat therapy may be a beneficial modality for women with fibromyalgia in order to improve pain and upper body range of motion, ultimately reducing the impact of fibromyalgia.
Starting Monday, May 17, we will be offering laser therapy – and you could get a free session by emailing us here.
About Laser Therapy
Laser Therapy, or “photobiomodulation”, is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. Laser Therapy has been widely utilized in Europe by physical therapists, nurses and doctors as far back as the 1970s.
Now, after FDA clearance in 2002, Laser Therapy is being used extensively in the United States.
