Bed wetting (called nocturnal enuresis in the medical world) is common for kids up to 5 years old. It's a normal part of a child's development and typically stops once children reach the ages 5 to 7.

There are, however, kids who wet their bed until a much older age. This can, of course, cause a huge amount of anxiety, embarrassment, and get in the way of fun social activities, such as sleepovers and school camps.

In the last few years, I've treated many kids, the oldest being 12 years old, for bed wetting. Many parents I met have exhausted traditional options such as bed wetting alarms - to no avail - and do not want to resort to medication or other more extreme treatment options. 

Recent Researches in Low Level Laser Therapy

Published in LLLT

In October, I was invited to speak at The World Association of Laser Therapy (WALT) 2018 conference held in Nice, France. It was an honor to give a talk on the treatment and management of dementia using low level laser. I had a lot of interest from my counterparts from around the world.  We had some great discussions regarding how to effectively improve cognitive function and daily performance of patients with dementia or poor memory. 

The conference attracted over 300 attendees from all parts of the world and I saw some very interesting exhibitors with ground-breaking new technologies. Other delegates spoke about the use of light and lasers in the following clinical areas:

  • Neurorehabilitation (Parkinson’s, dementia, brain injury, and stroke)
  • Muscle performance and Sports Medicine
  • Cancer care
  • Wound healing
  • Ophthalmology
  • Dentistry
  • Acupuncture and
  • Regenerative medicine

It was very exciting for me to see so much evidence from around the world on the effectiveness of low level laser in the management of existing conditions, maintenance of good health and prevention of diseases.

This conference showed that low level laser therapy has broad applications in many clinical scenarios and it continues to develop at a rapid pace. Both in terms of the development of better protocols and the invention of new technologies.

As always, please get in contact if you have any questions about how low level lasers can be used to help you.

Opioids are a commonly prescribed to patients in Australia with chronic knee, hip or lower back pain. A recent study looking into the effects of opioid medication for elderly people with muscle and joint pain. The finding of the study raises serious concerns about the effects and risks of using opioids, specifically for people aged 60 and older.

The study revealed that opioids have little effect on muscle and joint pains experienced by older patients: there is little pain relief and limited increase in function. At the same time, serious risks are involved for this group of people because there is a higher chance of adverse events, which are serious enough to lead patients to discontinue their opioid medication.

Opioids work on the brain, not the source of the pain. Opioid pain medications interfere with the transmission of pain messages from the part of the body that hurts to the brain. They do not heal or repair the source of the pain. In addition long-term opioid users will experience adverse side effects. The common side effects are 1) Constipation or gastrointestinal issues. This is one of the most prevalent side effects, which is called “opioid-induced bowel dysfunction”. Symptoms include abdominal cramping, spasm and bloating. 2) Increased risk of fractures. Because opioid affects the central nervous system resulting in symptoms as dizziness and reduced alertness causing falls especially in the elderly. 3) Hormone imbalance. Opioids have an impact on the endocrine system in both men and women. 4) Breathing problems. Abnormal, irregular breathing or apnea is concerned especially on high dose during asleep. 5) Depression. As opioid works on central nervous system, it causes imbalance in neurotransmitters and function of neurons. These are a few of side effects. Lon-term opioid use also causes physical, mental and emotional dependence.

To treat pain in muscles (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29090398) and joints (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27330707) effectively and without side effects, low level laser therapy offers a safe and clinically proven alternative to regular types of pain treatments.

You may have noticed that from 1 February 2018, medicines containing a low dosage of codeine are no longer available without prescription in Australia (https://www.nps.org.au/medical-info/clinical-topics/over-the-counter-codeine-changes-to-supply ). Research has shown that low-dose containing products offered little relief when it came to additional pain relief. Plus, there are many known side effects such as constipation, feeling sick and feeling sleepy. Codine is an opiate, inappropriate use can also lead to addition addiction and physical dependence.

Panadeine, NurofenPlus, Codral and Demazin are just a few common medicines for cold, flu and cough, though some people misused them for pain relief, which used to be available over the counter. Now, patients seeking pain relief need to obtain a prescription from their doctors or specialists.

But don’t panic: there are other ways to help reduce pain and aches in the body. Cold laser or Low level laser therapy (LLLT), one of light therapies, is the number one method to relief pain and fight inflammation: LLLT is proved scientifically and clinically effective in treatinga range of inflammation-related conditions, such as neck or back pain, joint pain, migraine and headaches, tendinitis, bursitis, soft tissue injury, fibromyalgia and degenerative diseases. LLLT decreases inflammation, relieves pain and promotes the healing process. It is a non-invasive, painless procedure without any adverse side effects. In addition, it is suitable for patients of all ages.

In our clinic we provide LLLT, laser acupuncture and non-invasive laser blood irradiation. We help people by treating illnesses and living their lives free of pain. Please call 9389 9699 to make your booking or call 0481 354 188 to discuss your condition with an experienced consultant.
