What is the RX Laser Pro

The RX Laser Pro is a new and innovative medical device that has been scientifically proven to help treat pain effectively. It uses different wavelengths of light through low-level lasers (cold lasers) to a targeted area. This has been clinically shown to reduce inflammation, eliminate pain and help regenerate the healing cells within the area. The Rx Laser Pro uses FDA approved technology and has no known side effects. The Rx Laser Pro is a premium quality handheld device and very easy to use yourself at home.

 

The Science Behind It

Low level laser therapy exerts a photochemical effect on living tissue rather than a thermal effect. This allows the laser light to be absorbed through the skin at different wavelengths. The device has the ability to penetrate 2-5 cm below the skin into a muscle, tendon or joint. It penetrates deeply into the tissue causing a biological stimulation. The cells absorb this light energy, and it initiates a series of events within the cells. The therapeutic effects of this include increased collagen production, increased ATP production and increased cellular metabolism.

 

What conditions does it help with

Low level laser therapy has many positive effects on both acute and chronic pain. Here are some examples of the conditions research has shown this technology to work on:

  • Arthritis (joint pain & stiffness)
  • Neck & Back pain
  • Shoulder and Hip tendonitis
  • Migraines
  • Chronic pain
  • Wound & Fracture healing
  • Fibromyalgia

 

What does the research for this treatment show

There have been over 2,000 published research studies carried out on the use of low-level laser therapy for managing acute and chronic pain. The results are overwhelming to show that using this technology has a significantly positive impact on pain and function. It’s efficacy and safety has been confirmed on thousands of people. See some of the examples of high-level research carried out below:

 

The Lancet (2009)

Systematic review on its use on 820 people with neck pain

‘Shows that low level laser therapy reduces pain immediately in people with acute neck pain’

 

American College of Physicians (2017)

Reviewed the different treatments for people with low back pain

‘Strong recommendation for low level laser therapy in acute and chronic low back pain’

 

British Medical Journal (2019)

Systematic review on its use on 1,063 people with knee arthritis

‘Overall, pain was significantly reduced with low level laser therapy vs placebo’
‘Concluded that low level laser therapy reduces pain and disability in knee osteoarthritis’

 

Pain Physician (2019)

Systematic review of 9 different studies including 325 fibromyalgia patients

‘Patients receiving LLLT demonstrated significantly greater improvement in pain severity, number of tender points, fatigue, stiffness and FIQ (fibromyalgia impact questionnaire)

 

World Health Organization (Neck Pain task force 2000-2010)

‘Recommends the use of LLLT for neck pain’

 

How do I use the device

The device is very easy to set up and to use yourself at home. It is non-invasive and most people hardly feel anything during the treatment. It only needs to be used for 10-15 minutes per day on the affected area. To use it, you simply charge the device (it comes with a plug-in adapter), switch it on by holding the ‘ON’ button for 2 seconds and it is ready to use. There is also an option to adjust the time and power. You simply point the device towards your affected area for the duration of treatment. People usually start to notice improvements in their pain and function within days, but it is dependent on each individual case.
