Easing Chronic Pain with Light

Easing Chronic Pain with Light - Alex's Story

Chiropractic Annville PA Back Pain

The back pain would wake him up at 3 AM. Working on a farm tending cows is strenuous work, and Alex needed his sleep. An inflammatory condition known as ankylosing spondylitis (AS) caused him ongoing pain in his lower back.

“At 13 years old, finding out that I had crippling disease hit me hard,” recalled Alex. AS is a form of arthritis that inflames the spinal joints leading to severe, chronic pain. “I have a great family with lots of support. I began seeing a good doctor two hours away in New Jersey for injections. This treatment also required monitoring blood tests twice a month. But after time, I decided I didn’t want to be stuck with needles for the rest of my life.”

“My mom heard about MLS Laser Therapy at Brennan Chiropractic and Laser Pain Solutions in Annville. I thought, ‘No! I don’t want to be shot full of holes with a laser!’” The comfortable and painless 15-minute MLS Laser treatments ease the pain and inflammation associated with musculoskeletal disorders, degenerative joint conditions and sports injuries. Therapy lasers have been in use for over 35 years; FDA-cleared MLS Laser Therapy is a noninvasive, state-of-theart breakthrough in restoring patient mobility, with no known side effects.

“MLS Laser Therapy is unique in that it treats both inflammation and pain simultaneously,” explained Dr. Tim Brennan. “It works by sending photons of light deep into damaged tissue, which recharge and stimulate the cells. The cells of tendons, ligaments and muscles repair themselves faster, and ‘kick-start’ the healing process.”

“After the first MLS Laser treatments, I felt a little better and then progressed, so that by the end of the month I felt like a million bucks,” Alex remarked. “I’m now on a maintenance program, one MLS Laser session per month, combined with chiropractic care. It’s really unbelievable.”
