Light Therapy Treatment for Pain – Minneapolis St. Paul, MN

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine has been helping people in pain for over 2000 years. Modern technology, however, has also provided tools that can work with these ancient treatment methods to provide additional ways for today’s practitioners to relieve pain and help patients regain their health.

For more than 20 years, Light Therapy has been used extensively throughout the world to effectively treat a number of soft-tissue injuries, pain, and inflammatory conditions.
Recently, this exciting technology was approved by the FDA for the treatment of pain and stiffness associated with arthritis. This is particularly important and timely in light of recent published concerns regarding the safety of traditional arthritis medications.

Light Therapy is backed by extensive research with hundreds of published studies covering a wide range of conditions including:

  • Arthritis & join pain
  • Carpal Tunnel syndrome
  • Headaches & migraine
  • Tennis elbow & tendonitis
  • Back & neck pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain

My 13 year old daughter suffered from sever, debilitating stomach pains for about two years. We tried homeopathy and chiropractic treatment with little improvement. The MDs prescribed medication after medication that only made it worse. Amy walked us through some dietary changes and treated my daughter with acupuncture. The pain went away with just a few treatments. Now, as long as my daughter watches the food she eats, she feels great. – Katie, Minneapolis, MN

Light therapy treatments are completely painless and take just a few minutes. Typically, Amy will use light therapy in conjunction with other treatments to further improve pain relief. In many cases, several treatments performed 2-3 times a week will produce the best results, but each case is unique and different conditions may require different approaches.

The Dynatron Solaris 702 Light Therapy console and light wand are FDA recognized for treating soft-tissue, muscle, and joint pain, and research has shown its effectiveness in speeding healing with such injuries and problems.
