Tuesday, April 14, 2015

The Channel Seven News report on 'Beating Back Pain' Aired last night (13 April). Since then, we have received a large increase in questions about Low Level Laser Therapy, and how it is used in chronic pain management.

I have been answering phone calls and emails continually since this went to air. Here are some of the most common questions:

How does it work? 

If you want the short answer, watch the news report on Channel 7 above. 

The longer answer is that Low Level Laser Therapy works by placing a low intensity laser directly where pain is felt; a beam of laser light sends light energy to the cells, which use this energy to fuel the body's own natural healing and anti-inflammatory process. Blood flow increases, inflammation decreases and the pain signals sent to the brain are reduced.

How much is a Low Level Laser Therapy consultation?
When people hear about a new treatment for their pain, many people want to know "where can I get it" and "how much does it cost"? If you are looking for a consultation from a laser practitioner, such as leading Laser therapist Dr Roberta Chow, then it will depend where you live and how many treatments you require for your specific pain. Yet what many people may not realise is that they can afford to buy their own Handy Cure laser to use at home for $575. 

How Much is the Low Level Laser?
Laser devices for home use range from around $500 to $1300. Professional Low Level Lasers start from $3500.  We sell the Handy Cure Laser for $575. But don't be fooled by our great price this is a quality laser, with the American branded version retailing for US$2500.
