Rheumatoid Arthritis, RA for short, affects 1.3 million people in the US from all backgrounds.

It takes most people suffering from the pain and stiffness 6-9 months to receive a diagnosis.

Early Symptoms of RA:

  • Weakness and Fatigue
  • Flu-like symptoms, including low-grade fever
  • Loss of appetite and/or weight loss
  • Anemia
  • Joint stiffness when waking in the morning and after inactivity
  • Joints can be warm, swollen, red, stiff, tender, or painful
  • Pain in foot or ankle, with limping
  • Loss of joint range of motion
  • Loss of joint function
  • Many joints affected (polyarthritis)
  • Both sides of the body affected (symmetric)

Both types of Arthritis lead to joint deformity and destruction. Waiting and resting does not make it better and does not stop any joint deterioration.

Laser Therapy reduces the pain from Rheumatoid Arthritis

Laser Therapy reduces the inflammation and pain associated with both types of arthritis, Rheumatoid- and Osteo-Arthritis even before a final diagnosis is made. Laser therapy uses both red and infrared light to relieve pain, decrease inflammation and to accelerate healing. The lights are imbedded in pads that are placed on the joints so the photons penetrate several centimeters into the joints. The light energy gets 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 growth and function.

Here is what one of our patients says:

Before laser treatment I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I had pain in my neck, shoulders, upper arms, and hands; it happened all at once. They prescribed me medications that made me dizzy and did not help. I was on my own so I began taking Aleve and it helped but I was still not able to lie down in my bed. I had to sleep in the recliner and depended on my husband to help me with almost everything. After just two laser treatments I was able to sleep in my own bed and after 11 I am nearly pain free. The laser works and is worth trying, especially to avoid dangerous medications.          BH, Bakersville
