Arthritis can be a debilitating condition, affecting your joints and diminishing your quality of life. The symptoms often include pain, swelling, and stiffness, making even simple tasks challenging. There are various treatment options available, but many people are searching for non-invasive, medication-free alternatives.

At LaserLab™ in Lake Mary, FL, we offer a different solution: the Summus Laser. This advanced technology provides a non-medicated approach to managing arthritis symptoms. The treatment is designed to promote healing and reduce inflammation, offering patients a new avenue for relief.

What Is Arthritis?

Arthritis is a medical condition characterized by inflammation in one or more joints. This inflammation often leads to symptoms such as stiffness, discomfort, and reduced range of motion. Contrary to popular belief, arthritis is not a single disease but rather a term encompassing over 100 different disorders affecting the joints.

What Causes Arthritis?

The root causes of arthritis can vary depending on the specific type of arthritis in question. Genetic factors, age, and lifestyle choices like diet and exercise, as well as previous injuries, can all play a role. Some types of arthritis, like rheumatoid arthritis, are autoimmune disorders, meaning the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks its own tissues.

What Does Arthritis Feel Like?

When it comes to arthritis symptoms, individuals may experience a range of sensations from mild discomfort to severe pain. Frequently, patients describe sensations of stiffness, especially upon waking up or after periods of inactivity. Other symptoms can include swelling, tenderness in the joints, and a decrease in mobility or flexibility.

What Are the Different Types of Arthritis?

While there are many different types of arthritis and related conditions, here are some of the more commonly diagnosed forms:

  • Degenerative Arthritis: Sometimes known as osteoarthritis, this common type of arthritis is characterized by the gradual wear and tear of cartilage, leading to bone grinding against bone in the affected joints.
  • Juvenile Arthritis: Unlike other forms, juvenile arthritis affects children and teens, causing inflammation and stiffness in joints, often for no apparent reason.
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis: This is an autoimmune disorder where the body’s immune system attacks its own joint tissues, resulting in inflammation and pain in the rheumatoid arthritis-affected joints.

Summus Laser Treatments for Arthritis

What Is the Summus Laser?

Summus Laser offers a non-invasive and non-pharmacological approach to pain relief, targeting the specific areas where arthritis pain resides. Unlike other forms of treatment, the Summus Laser delivers precise energy amounts to each targeted zone, mitigating damage and promoting long-term effects.

How Does the Summus Laser Work?

The efficacy of Summus Laser in providing arthritis pain relief is rooted in the process of photobiomodulation (PBM). Through PBM, photons are absorbed by chromophores in your tissues, triggering several beneficial changes. This can result in increased cellular metabolism, reduced muscle spasms, decreased pain, and improved healing of damaged tissues. Overall, the Summus Laser helps to modify the inflammatory process, speeding up the body’s natural healing and repair capabilities.

What Are Treatments Like? 

Determining the Root Cause of Your Pain

The first step in arthritis pain relief at LaserLab™ is identifying the root cause of your pain. Our assessment involves a thorough evaluation to ensure that the treatment targets your specific symptoms effectively.

Setting Up a Treatment Plan

Once the initial assessment is complete, we move on to creating a treatment plan. This plan is specifically designed to address your arthritis symptoms and optimize your results.

Treatment Sessions

During the treatment sessions, the Summus Laser is calibrated to your specific needs. Each session is designed to reduce your pain and improve your mobility, targeting the areas most affected by arthritis.

Follow-Up Care

After each treatment, we evaluate your progress to determine the effectiveness of the therapy. Based on this evaluation, adjustments may be made to your treatment plan to ensure that you are receiving the most beneficial care.

When Will I Experience Summus Laser Results?

It is important to note that arthritis treatment outcomes vary from person to person. Some patients feel relief after just one Summus Laser session, while others might need multiple treatments to see noticeable improvements. When we go over your symptoms in detail to develop a treatment plan that is right for you, we will also take the opportunity to set realistic expectations for your post-treatment results.

The LaserLab Experience for Arthritis

As part of our services, we offer a comprehensive approach to arthritis treatment that extends beyond many other types of treatments. Our adjustable tables with face rests are designed to make your laser sessions as comfortable as possible. Complementary aromatherapy and soothing music can help minimize stress and promote healing. We also offer red light therapy beds, providing an added layer of pain relief and wellness for particular patients. Our aim is to promote holistic health and healing to help you make the most out of your arthritis treatment. 

Treating Your Arthritis at the Root With Summus Laser

While symptoms may be the most noticeable part of arthritis, the pain is linked to underlying sources such as inflammation. By helping the tissues in the areas to heal, we can also help to minimize pain. This offers longer-lasting relief than painkillers, which are just putting a bandaid on the pain.
