Radiant pain and discomfort are often major side effects of hip issues. Many patients suffer from pain in the following body areas:
Back and leg discomfort, which can be caused by sciatica or a hernia, can travel down to the hip as well. Pain can also get worse when the individual is active, particularly when the pain is the result of arthritis. When the pain is ongoing, some patients will suffer with a reduced range of motion and with limping, which can lead to imbalances and pain in other parts of the body.
MLS laser therapy stimulates living tissue to boost the body’s metabolism and healing process. Similar to the photosynthesis process that green plants use to get nutrients from sunlight, the chromophores found in each of your cells has the same capacity to absorb light, provided there is a light source that can get there. MLS Laser Therapy has been specially developed and refined to provide that source of light energy. The benefits of laser therapy include pain reduction and anti-inflammatory effects, increased circulation and the development of new capillaries, and increased lymphatic drainage.
