Functional Laser Therapy

Safe, Effective Healing for Golfers and Other Athletes

by Dr. Keri Topouzian

Functional Laser Therapy -

We see it often. A golfer who develops Medial Epicondylitis (Golfer's Elbow) or other injuries to the shoulder, knee, shin, leg, ankle and back. It's the same injury hundreds of golfers get and don't even realize until they end up at their doctor’s office, at a pain clinic, etc.

Yet, as an athlete, no matter the age, they are competing to win. No pain, no gain, right? That’s harder to say as you age and you no longer heal like you did as a teenager. You may even reinjure parts of your body, over and over again, to the point where the injury never fully heals.

In addition, many golfers and other athletes turn to painkillers or over-the-counter (OTC) medications to keep going. I recently saw a commercial for a medication offering 12 hours of pain relief: "Take one and you’ll start dancing." The commercial should continue to the next morning when the pain returns because the underlying cause has not been addressed. Fast-forward five years and continued use of medications may even cause kidney damage.

So the question is, how or where do you get a non-invasive treatment to break this cycle and heal? One solution involves staying active and finding safe, effective methods to heal injuries. One of these approaches, that may be of benefit in a short period of time, is High Dose Laser therapy, using an FDA Cleared Class IV Laser by Remy that is scientifically proven to be safe and effective. Unlike other approaches and therapies, laser therapy treats the underlying cause of injuries and other conditions to promote complete healing.

Treatment with the laser is pain-free, highly effective, restores normal range of motion and physical function–and reduces the need for prescription or OTC medications. The Remy 4 laser therapy can also assist with inflammation; accelerating nerve, tissue and cell growth and putting oxygen into cells, which quickens the healing process.
