Rheumatic Arthritis is the most common form of autoimmune arthritis. It affects more than 1.3 million Americans. About 75% of Rheumatic Arthritis patients are women. In fact, 1 – 3% of women may get rheumatoid arthritis in their lifetime. The disease most often begins between the ages of 30 and 50. However, Rheumatic Arthritis can start at any age.
Rheumatic Arthritis is a chronic disease that causes joint pain, stiffness, swelling and decreased movement of the joints. Small joints in the hands and feet are most commonly affected. Sometimes Rheumatic Arthritis can affect your organs, such as eyes, skin or lungs.
What are the Goals of treatment?
As we know, joint pain is the main factor which affects the patient's sense of well-being. The patients try many methods like medications control, surgery of joint transplantation, physical therapy, occupational therapy, nutritional supplement, even consulting psychologists, but the condition move slowly.
After consulting many doctors, I learned the doctors also have their strategies to relieve pain and inflammation.
Early aggressive treatment, the doctors adopt the first strategy is to reduce or stop inflammation as quickly as possible.
Targeting remission, the doctors refer to inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis as disease activity. The strategy to achieve this goal is called "treated to target".
Tight control, the doctors get disease activity to a low level and keeping it there is what is called having "tight control of RA (Rheumatic Arthritis)." Research shows that tight control con prevents and slow the pace of joint damage.
Domer Laser also tries much technology to relieve pain, and inflammation, after 4 years clinic testing, and thousands of patient or doctor's testimonials, we are excited and confident that our cold laser therapy instrument is effective in relieving pain, anti-inflammation.
Why does the cold laser therapy instrument work on RA?
Domer cold laser therapy (LLLT) instrument adopts the wavelength 808nm low level laser beam and 650nm low level laser beam, which has strong penetration, could act on the tissue 5 to 7 cm under the skin to relieve the pain, repair the injured joint, anti-inflammation. We combined the cold laser therapy instrument with Chinese traditional medicine theory of acupuncture, after the cold laser applied to biology, there is no irreversible damage to the biological organization, just cause a series of physiological and biochemical changes, such as anti-inflammatory and analgesic , desensitization, adjust the body function and so on.
Most of all, the low level laser therapy is non-invasive, non-toxic, pain-free, easily applied, highly effective, no known negative side effects, the cure rate is up to 95%. It is the handheld device, easy to operate, it is called as "the family doctor". The low level laser therapy instrument can modality quickly relieve the pain, some patients get immediate results, others require 6-10 treatments before seeing a lasting effect.
The happiest thing for us is to hear the good news of the patients with rheumatoid arthritis, they start their life without pain anymore.
