East Meets West

New Technology for an ancient medicine

It is very exciting to see old and new methodologies of treatment coming together in harmony. Acupuncture has been used to treat pain issues for many thousands of years. Treatment is based on the concept of Qi (energy) flowing through specific channels in the body. In injury, there is a blockage of the flow of Qi. Acupuncture restores flow and thereby relieves the pain associated with the blockage.

Laser Therapy utilises and supports this natural phenomenon. Multiple frequencies of light are delivered through the skin and converted by our cells into vital cellular energy (ATP), which is necessary for regeneration and repair of the human body. Acuhealth offer safe and natural relief from pain.

Orthopaedic & Sports Injury
Extensive laboratory and clinical research into this method of laser application has shown:

  • Sports injuries involving trauma to soft tissue, tendons and ligaments had accelerated recovery ranging from 35% - 50% in 85% of patients when compared with patients who did not receive this method of laser therapy.     

  • Speedier reduction in pain, inflammation, joint swelling and increased range of movement.

  • Significant reduction in the time to turn a non-weight bearing injury into a weight bearing one.

  • Aids bone healing and osteo-integration with prosthetics and other bio-implants.

  • Increases in the survival rate of injured and crushed peripheral nerves.

  • Induces regeneration and repair of spinal cord injury.

What are the clinical effects?
  • Speeds soft tissue and joint healing
  • Relieves pain
  • Muscle tension relaxation
  • Nerve stimulation and regeneration
  • Releases contracture
  • Softens and reduces scar tissue
  • Improves microcirculation
  • Decreases acute and chronic inflammation
  • Revascularisation
Conditions typically treated:
  • Sports injuries
  • Wound healing
  • Arthritis (osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis)
  • Lower back pain
  • Neck & shoulder pain
  • Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI)
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)
  • Sprains and strains
  • Post-operative care
  • Knee, foot, ankle pain
  • Tennis Elbow / Golfer's Elbow 
  • Soft tissue injuries

 

Laser therapy is SAFE, and PAINLESS.

LLLT - Low-level laser therapy can be explained in terms of qi, but it is best explained in terms that we can understand in a western model. Laser therapy has the following demonstrated benefits:

Through the action of photo-bio-stimulation of light reactive biological receptors (chromophores) in the body, Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has demonstrated the ability to significantly accelerate and enhance the body's natural defense and repair components in the presence of injury, inflammation and certain disease processes. Low Level Laser Therapy is also effective in providing pain relief by stimulating the production of endorphins. By modifying the effects and limiting the duration of inflammation, as well as enhancing specific repair and healing processes, LLLT is consistent in providing pain relief, reduced inflammation, reduced injury damage and restoring loss of function. Additionally, Low Level Laser Therapy is able to facilitate more rapid cellular repair and stronger healed tissue structures. Multiple clinical studies have noted the following results of LLLT.

 

Case Study

   Rheumatoid Arthritis

50 year old female patient diagnosed as having Class 3 RA inflammatory phase of steady development.

Treatment three times per week. Total number of treatments were 12 over a one month period.


Comments:
Picture 1
: Condition as start of treatment - note the extent of inflammation indicated by yellow

Picture 2: After 6 treatments 

Picture 3: After 13 treatments

You can see the improvement from treatment of the condition, and the third picture shows the progress at 13 treatments.

inflammation and pain.
Yellow & Orange (Hot areas) = inflammation
Blue & Green (Cold areas) = reduction of inflammation

Acuhealth therapy offers safe and natural relief from muscular and arthritic pain:

  • Inflammation, swelling and the concentration of pain-producing chemicals in our body are reduced naturally.

  • Improves blood flow to joints and influences cartilage regeneration.
