New Treatment Option for Restless Leg Syndrome
posted by Apollo Lasers on Friday, October 3, 2014
For sufferers of restless leg syndrome, the disorder greatly impacts their quality of life. New research is showing that RLS patients may be able to get that quality of life back through cold laser therapy treatments. Dr. Wayne Fitcher of Natural Spine Solutions explains.
Sufferers from Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) have often been at a loss for effective treatment of this frustrating condition.
After all, RLS sufferers experience difficulty accomplishing ordinary activities, such as sitting still at work, and in car and airplane travel, as they feel that they must continually move their legs. Additionally, this powerful urge is so prevalent, it can even prevent a sufferer from falling asleep, leading to secondary conditions like insomnia, sleep apnea and chronic fatigue.
In short, RLS doesn't just affect the legs - it can affect every aspect of a sufferer's life.
A new treatment is available that helps relieve the symptoms of RLS, therefore allowing patients to sleep more soundly and increase their activities during the day in order to maintain a healthier lifestyle.
Luckily, many adult sufferers have a new option in the fight against RLS: cold laser therapy.
Health experts have discovered that cold laser therapy can stimulate cellular function by increasing energy within the cell, supporting tissue regeneration, increasing protein synthesis and increasing circulation to the affected area, thus reducing the pain and discomfort often associated with RLS. By increasing circulation in the affected areas, more oxygen is brought to the area, thus helping the healing process. Most sufferers report a significant amount of relief from their RLS due to this innovative and non-invasive treatment, which requires no hospitalization and minimal recovery time.
It's finally a viable treatment option for exasperated RLS sufferers everywhere.
Not only is this a viable treatment for RLS, but our office has found cold laser therapy to be a viable solution for a multitude of conditions, such as RLS, carpal tunnel, migraines, neuropathy, joint injuries, back pain, bursitis, burns, acne, and arthritis, to name a few. Since it is non-evasive, we use it practically on every condition that comes into our office, and have seen amazing results.
