Low Level Laser Treatment: The Alternative To Opioid Use For Back Pain
About 80% of adults experience low back pain at some point in their lives. Of those, about 60% are treated with opioids. But just how effective are opioids in treating low back pain?
Opioid painkillers are often prescribed for chronic back pain, but various studies have found that prescription drugs aren’t as effective as doctors once thought.
In fact, the CDC changed its recommendations on opioid use.
Research provides promising evidence that low level laser therapy is a safer, more effective treatment option for chronic low back pain than opioid painkillers.
A study published in JAMA in 2018 looked at chronic low back pain with opioids and NSAIDS over 1 year. The results of the study concluded that opioids caused only a 30% reduction in pain, while NSAIDs proved a 34.5% reduction in pain.
Erchonia’s FX 635 success criteria was defined as a minimum of a 30% decrease in chronic low back pain for patients.
The outcome? Erchonia's FX 635 laser showed a 72% success rate! Another reason to choose alternative medicine like chiropractic for low back pain treatment in New Albany, Indiana.
