Pain relief – Light (cold laser) therapy as an alternative to pain relief medicines

You may have noticed that from 1 February 2018, medicines containing a low dosage of codeine are no longer available without prescription in Australia (https://www.nps.org.au/medical-info/clinical-topics/over-the-counter-codeine-changes-to-supply ). Research has shown that low-dose containing products offered little relief when it came to additional pain relief. Plus, there are many known side effects such as constipation, feeling sick and feeling sleepy. Codine is an opiate, inappropriate use can also lead to addition addiction and physical dependence.

Panadeine, NurofenPlus, Codral and Demazin are just a few common medicines for cold, flu and cough, though some people misused them for pain relief, which used to be available over the counter. Now, patients seeking pain relief need to obtain a prescription from their doctors or specialists.

But don’t panic: there are other ways to help reduce pain and aches in the body. Cold laser or Low level laser therapy (LLLT), one of light therapies, is the number one method to relief pain and fight inflammation: LLLT is proved scientifically and clinically effective in treatinga range of inflammation-related conditions, such as neck or back pain, joint pain, migraine and headaches, tendinitis, bursitis, soft tissue injury, fibromyalgia and degenerative diseases. LLLT decreases inflammation, relieves pain and promotes the healing process. It is a non-invasive, painless procedure without any adverse side effects. In addition, it is suitable for patients of all ages.

In our clinic we provide LLLT, laser acupuncture and non-invasive laser blood irradiation. We help people by treating illnesses and living their lives free of pain. Please call 9389 9699 to make your booking or call 0481 354 188 to discuss your condition with an experienced consultant.
