Therapeutic Laser Receives FDA Clearance for the Treatment of Pain Associated with Fibromyalgia
“Multi Radiance Medical has become the first laser therapy manufacturer to receive FDA clearance to treat pain associated with fibromyalgia.
Through a photoceutical approach to care, the new patent-pending Multi Radiance Medical FibroLux therapy laser represents a breakthrough in pain management options, offering patients a non-pharmacological, non-invasive, and side-effect-free treatment for fibromyalgia that is now cleared by the FDA. Like pharmaceuticals, photoceutical devices are validated through clinical studies and deliver optimal doses of light energy using a combination of curated wavelengths, administered at the correct dose (time and power), and the ideal dosage (frequency of application) resulting in consistent, reproducible outcomes.
In a clinical trial, MRM’s FibroLux laser was found to reduce tender point count, mean pain ratings, and Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ) scores compared to placebo. Overall findings demonstrated that the FibroLux delivers a safe and effective treatment for reducing fibromyalgia pain, and treatment times last an average of 3-6 minutes.”
Sciatica Home Treatment
Sciatic Nerve Pain has a very specific quality of pain that radiates or shoots down your leg. Remember, just because you have leg pain, does not mean that you have sciatica. It’s important to recognize the type of pain that you are experiencing to identify properly if you are in fact suffering from sciatic nerve pain.
