Every decade or two, a new therapy comes to light that has a profound impact on treatment success. In today’s health care setting, one of the most challenging and increasing components of treatment is pain management. Pain can have a debilitating effect on the enjoyment of your day-to-day activities, your mood and energy overall. Pain management has mostly been the realm of medications which often lead to undesired side effects. However, there are new and effective options to not just reduce pain, but also to promote actual healing of damaged tissues in a way that does not carry unwanted side effects.
The MedX laser therapy device is the culmination of decades of medical research and certainly falls into the category of treatments that can have a transformative effect on improving patient care. Studies by NASA researchers found that human tissues repair themselves up to 40% faster with the use of laser phototherapy.
