Think about how humans have sciatic pain. Their foot and leg hurts because their nerve is pinched near their spine. In plain English, we use the reverse of that to treat pain with the Low Level Light Therapy, something like a nerve block. We apply the laser to a similar location and we can work to block that nerve. The pain signal from an arthritic joint travels up the nerve. We are often able to calm that nerve before it joins the spinal cord and tells the brain about pain. We generally discontinue prescription NSAIDS while starting the Low Level Laser Therapy and can generally reduce or eliminate other prescription pain medications.
