As we head into darker, shorter days and the pandemic continues, we want you to know that we’re taking strict precautions to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. During this three-week pause, Dr. McSweeney is here to help. Chronic pain can’t always wait, and we have options like pain management kits for home care and the EVRL, an FDA-cleared class IV laser for effective pain management here in Reno.
LASER TECHNOLOGY FOR PAIN MANAGEMENT
The EVRL safety stimulates healing on a cellular level without anesthesia, needles, or downtime – just a painless treatment with real results. The laser’s innovative design uses red and violet lasers for antibacterial and antimicrobial properties.
Dr. McSweeney uses it to treat an extensive range of conditions, including:
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Neck and shoulder pain
- Back pain
- Knee pain
- Planter fasciitis
HOW IT WORKS
The cold laser targets muscles and tissues and promotes healing by stimulating light-sensitive components in the body. It’s similar to photosynthesis in plants. In this process, the mitochondria is stimulated, encouraging the cells to produce more of the molecule responsible for storing and transferring energy.
Here’s the interesting part. The laser doesn’t suppress pain or increase range of motion – it restores functionality by stimulating the nervous system, soft tissues, cartilage, and nerves. In doing so, it can effectively resolve inflammation, boost oxygen and blood flow, increase neurotransmitter release, and promote muscle calcium uptake.
The laser is one of many used by Dr. McSweeney here in her Reno practice. If chronic pain is something you can’t endure any longer, we’re here to help. Schedule a laser treatment and consultation today, and learn more about our current office practices.
