Carpal Tunnel Syndrome & Laser Therapy
With our new age of computers, smart phones and texting comes many new and painful stresses to our body. More and more people are struggling with carpal tunnel syndrome due to repetitive movements in the hands and wrist. Pain and/or numbness can get so bad especially at night, causing you to lose sleep and not being able to work.

Laser Therapy is:
Laser therapy uses red and infrared light for the relief of pain, to accelerate the healing and decrease inflammation. When the Light source is placed against the skin, the photons penetrate several centimeters and get absorbed by the mitochondria, the energy producing part of the cell. This energy fuels many positive physiological responses resulting in the restoration of normal cell function. Laser therapy promotes regeneration and joint function at the cellular level allowing the body to heal naturally with no side effects.
Time and time again our patients have had success with treating carpal tunnel syndrome and are able to avoid un-necessary surgeries and painful physical therapy.
Meditech International, Inc worked with General Motors conducting a 36 week double blind study with 166 employees with carpal tunnel syndrome. Patients that were treated with the Bioflex Laser System showed improved grip strength and range of motion with a few treatments.
