Where Laser Therapy Can Help

Whether treating locally in practice or referring, GPs can help their patients through awareness of the potential of this well-supported drug-free, non-invasive therapy for a range of common conditions. Laser therapy is useful for restoring normal cellular function. It can provide resolution for non-healing wounds in weakened patients and is found to reduce the number and severity of attacks when used to treat Herpes Simplex.

Laser's anti-inflammatory capabilities are used to good effect addressing dermatological conditions including acne and it can be a great help to sufferers of allergic rhinitis, reducing the mucus membrane symptoms. It offers a drug-free pain relief option whether nociceptal or neuralgic, being particularly effective for arthritic knees and post-herpetic neuralgia.

Laser acupuncture has also helped thousands of patients overcome nicotine addiction being most useful for long-term smokers whose addiction is strongly biological.
