Laser Therapy Helps People Become Pain Free
Using a Non-Surgical Laser
For Arthritis, Joint, Muscle, and Nerve Problems

By Sara Pentz

Newport Beach-based Dr. Melissa Ritter, D.C., is using a new type of laser beam to treat the pain therapeutically that so many of us live with every day. Amazingly, her success rate treating patients with moderate to severe arthritic pain has been up to 90%. And, it lasts! She uses a new technology that combines a synchronized, high-powered, dual wavelength infrared laser in a single beam aimed directly at the origin of the pain, reducing and often completely eliminating the pain.

“I have seen patients with serious pain come into my offices who, sometimes after only one treatment, walk out pain free,” she explains. “The laser does not cure problems, but it can, in many cases, completely eliminate the painful effects of a series of problems.” Explains one of Dr. Ritter’s patients, Cliff Smith (8/16/06): “I do construction work. I had pain in my left knee for six to eight months. After one treatment, the pain and range of motion in both improved dramatically. I had a total of four treatments and now I feel as good as new.”

“Some of my patients come for the treatment and then return for a follow up,” she adds. “Others come for a series of laser treatments––anywhere from five to 15. It depends upon the problem. However, it is a fact that this laser treatment allows my patients to have a much happier and more productive life.”

Laser therapy works well for a variety of conditions. In fact, evidence-based research is revealing that serious injuries respond positively to this kind of high-energy laser therapy treatment.

Conditions such as arthritis pain, joint pain, muscle pain, nerve pain and fibromyalgia respond positively to the laser treatment. Even injuries brought on by sports, automobile accidents or work can be treated easily, comfortably and non-surgically with Dr. Ritter’s laser therapy.

This particular laser’s uniquely combined wavelengths expand the therapeutic value of the laser for the reduction of inflammation, pain and––to a degree––scar tissue. It successfully increases local blood flow to reduce muscle spasms and joint stiffness.

An estimated 50 million Americans live with chronic pain caused by disease, disorder or accident. The FDA has recently cleared this new laser technology for use on patients precisely because it was found to be effective, safe, economical, and, more importantly, offers hope as well as results for millions of people.

Public demand for this revolutionary pain relief has made laser therapy a super star in the medical and therapy treatment profession because of the amazing results reported by patients.

The benefits are easily catalogued. Most conditions start to show signs of improvement in just a few visits. There are no harmful side effects like those associated with pain medications or surgery. Laser therapy is a safe, pain free treatment that only takes a few minutes per visit.
