Acute pain, a case study

acute pain calf strainA recent patients of mine is a 24 year-old exercise enthuthiast, who cycles to work everyday (~30min one way) in addition to many other daily workouts.
He came to my clinic with a case of calf strain that has been progressively getting worse over a 6 months period. He felt his movement was severely limited and causing severe pain, to the point where he was unable to continue with his active lifestyle.

After initial consultation and assessment, the ensuing session of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) we effectively helped toreduce inflammation in the area and associated pain after 2 treatment sessions. combined with rest and adjustment to daily activities (for example, taking bus to work), one month after treatment, he has stayed pain free and has been able to return to his usual routines.

Acute pain can be quickly managed by proper LLLT, which acts to relax tense muscles, reduce inflammation due to soft tissue injuries, improve circulation, boost immune response, all factors contributing to accelerated healing.

At Sydney Laser Health Solutions, we provide integrative injury/pain management Low Level Laser Therapy and healthy lifestyle advice to effectively help patients become pain free and to help them prevent future reoccurances of injuries or pain.
