Many patients come to the Laser Med Pain Institute searching for real pain relief after conventional medicine has failed to help them. Often they’ve been recommended to undergo invasive surgeries or prescribed medications, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and opiates, that temporarily mask pain but are rife with dangerous side effects. Instead of relying on these modalities, we recommend high-intensity laser therapy as a first-line treatment for anyone suffering with acute or chronic pain.
