Sometimes, your battle with fibromyalgia can feel like a lonely one, but you’re not alone. In fact, fibromyalgia is among the most common chronic pain conditions, affecting over 4 million people in the United States annually according to the CDC:  https://www.cdc.gov/arthritis/types/fibromyalgia.htm

 

At Premier Health Chiro + Med, Dr. H. Khayal and our team walk alongside you in your fight against pain, offering you the best treatment and support. We specialize in treating your fibromyalgia pain with cold laser therapy technology.

 

What is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain condition that affects your bones, muscles, and joints. It’s often misunderstood or misdiagnosed because the exact cause is hard to determine. There are some common risk factors among those who have fibromyalgia, including having another painful disease like arthritis or a condition like PTSD, getting a lack of exercise, or having a family history of fibromyalgia. Women are also at a greater risk of developing this condition.

Typically you experience symptoms like:

  • Muscle pain
  • Lower tolerance for pain or tenderness
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Inability to remember or concentrate
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Feelings of anxiousness or nervousness

Although there’s no cure for fibromyalgia, there are lots of ways to manage your symptoms. Medications, exercise, stress management, and healthy habits are all great ways to find some relief from your pain.

However, sometimes exercise doesn’t fit into your lifestyle or you want to avoid taking prescription medications. If that’s the case, we recommend cold laser therapy.

 

The science behind cold laser therapy

Cold laser therapy is a painless, noninvasive procedure that helps your body heal and feel better. Dr. Khayal uses this infrared light technology to pinpoint your most painful areas. The wavelengths from the lasers cause your cells to vibrate, which stimulates your body’s natural healing response.

This process also causes your body to release more endorphins. Endorphins are hormones best known for triggering a positive feeling in your body, but they’re also your body’s built-in pain relievers.

During your cold laser therapy treatment, we will use a hand-held device to administer the lasers to an exact area on your body. It usually only takes 10 minutes and there’s no downtime required, so you can fit in a treatment session over your lunch break.

Most people need more than one treatment to get the best results. You really start feeling better about four weeks following treatment. Dr. Khayal develops a treatment plan specific to you that details how many treatments you need.

Cold laser therapy is so effective because it doesn’t matter what’s caused your fibromyalgia. Regardless of the source of your pain, this advanced technology seeks out your most painful areas and then gently and naturally stimulates your body’s own ability to heal. No surgeries, no medications, no harmful chemicals. Just your body getting the help and support it needs to feel better.

Whether you’ve just recently developed fibromyalgia or you’ve been living with it for years, cold laser therapy is the relief you’ve been looking for. Don’t spend another day in pain. Call our office to get started today.
