New Laser Relieves Pain and Inflammation

New class IV laser provides deepest tissue penetration for pain relief and inflammation reduction. Hands-On Care Physical Therapy in Astoria, NY provides a free laser session to patients in pain.

(PRWEB) January 11, 2010 -- A relatively new branch of medicine, a Class IV laser delivers a large amount of light energy into the human body. When it interacts with damaged cells, healing is accelerated and pain is virtually eliminated. As we age, recover from trauma or surgery, or simply need relief from everyday aches and pains, this advanced technology offers Drug-Free, Surgery-Fee, Pain-Free Relief. Dr. Brian Pryor, President of LiteCure, explained that the light penetrates deep into the tissues, reducing inflammation, improving cell respiration and slowing nerve conduction for immediate pain relief.

Konstantine Rizopoulos, PT, MCMT, co-founder of Hands-On Seminars stated that “low level laser therapy (Classes I-III) provides less than optimal clinical outcomes in most disease conditions, because it cannot produce the deep tissue laser penetration necessary without using excessively long treatment times. Longer wavelengths and higher power output result in deeper penetration and higher dosage to the tissue. LCT-1000 is a Class IV laser and can deliver optimal results”.

Dr. Dimitrios Kostopoulos, PT, PhD, DSc, founder of Hands-On Care Physical Therapy in Astoria, NY, emphatically stated that: “…patients must understand that Laser technology alone will not produce the best clinical outcomes. When you use a Class IV laser you must apply it to the right area and it must be combined with manual physical therapy”. It is the special application of the laser technology and the integration of manual physical therapy that provides such amazing results to our patients, Dr Kostopoulos added.

Hands-On Care Physical Therapy is hosting a special event on Sunday, January 17 from 12pm to 5pm in their Astoria facilities where patients will experience demonstrations of the new laser technology. For information and to RSVP for the event contact Hands-On at: 718-626-2699 or at 32-70 31st Street, Astoria, NY 11106.
