Avicenna Laser Technology for Pain Management

A couple of years back I was contacted by an Avicenna Representative about listing information about their new Pain Treatment Laser Technology. I agreed to link to their site. As of this posting July 2008, I have not tried the technology. There are simply not enough trained Physicians near where I live. However I believe the technology may hold promise for Pain Relief if you live near a Trained Doctor.

Laser Technology for Pain Management

Since 2003, Avicenna Laser Technology, Inc. has been a pioneer and pacesetter in the advancement of therapeutic laser therapy for musculoskeletal and neuropathic pain management.

On December 11, 2003 Avicenna’s HP-7.5 Class IV therapeutic laser was the FDA’s first cleared high power Class IV laser. Since that time, Avicenna has become the market leader in laser therapy patient education, physician training and research & development.

Today, as high power laser therapy is widely recognized as a safe, pain-free and non-invasive medical procedure to accelerate the treatment and rehabilitation of various acute and chronic pain conditions the company’s Class IV medical device is used in over 100 U.S. medical practitioners’ offices and continues to grow.

Avicenna’s laser modality is utilized by orthopedic and pain management physicians, MDs-family practice, physical therapists, doctors of oriental medicine, anti-aging clinicians, chiropractors, cosmetic & plastic surgeons, veterinarian’s, university physical therapy R&D labs, health & wellness centers, sports rehabilitation clinics, and found in the progressive sports medicine and athletic training rooms of NCAA, MLB, NBA, and NFL teams.

Message From CEO

Since 2003, Avicenna Laser Technology, Inc. has been at the forefront of engineering and delivering first-in-class high power therapeutic laser therapy devices to medical care providers. Today, I am proud to be leading a company selling the worlds most powerful and first FDA cleared high power therapeutic laser for musculoskeletel and neuropathic pain mangement.

An estimated 50 million Americans live with chronic pain caused by disease, disorder or accident. An additional 25 million people suffer acute pain resulting from surgery or accident. Approximately, two thirds of these individuals in pain have been living with this pain for more than five years.

The most common types of pain includes: arthritis, lower back, bone & joint pain, muscle pain and fibromyalgia. The loss of productivity and daily activity due to pain is substantial. It was reported in 2000 that 36 million Americans missed work in the previous year due to pain, and that 83 million indicated that pain affected their participation in various activities.

People with chronic pain have difficulty finding doctors who can effectively treat their pain. “The Chronic Pain in America: Roadblocks to Relief” study found that one out of four pain patients had changed doctors at least three times, reporting that the primary reason for change was that they still experienced pain. Although, most acute cases resolve with simple conservative means, many patients develop chronic symptoms. Too often treatment consists of “more of the same.” Many patients undergo expensive and often ineffective interventions when routine treatment methods fail. In desperation, surgery may be performed for borderline indications with predictably poor results.

As a physician and scientist, I have seen many cases where patients conditions get significantly worse after prolonged usage of pain medications or surgery. I believe that many conditions experienced by these patients would have resolved if they had been offered Avicenna Class IV High Power Laser Therapy. Any physician who routinely treats patients with pain should remember the Hippocratic mandate “primum non nocere” (above all, do no harm). Avicenna Class IV High Power Laser Therapy is a safe, non-invasive, reliable, cost-effective treatment tool which has been proven effective in over 100 care provider offices throughout the U.S.

Our laser device is being integrated into the athletic training rooms of professional sports teams to accelerate athlete injury rehabilitation times, and physical therapists and orthopedic surgeons are utilizing and referring our technology post-surgery for their patients rehabilitation aftercare programs. Avicenna Class IV High Power Laser Therapy should be considered for any patient experiencing pain from neuropathic, myofascial, or sclerotogenous etiologies.

As an innovative, well-respected, and well-established industry leader, we promote the best practices in healthcare. Our focus will always remain on our patients and customers. Our team of clinicians and support personnel do more than just promote the theories and benefits of laser therapy — our clinical experience demonstrates that we improve a patients well being, and we continually train, support and become part of the medical professionals offices who utilize our technology.

Thank you for visiting our web site. (See Link Below)

Sincerely,

Dr. Bruce R. Coren
Chairman, CEO & Co-Founder
Avicenna Laser Technology, Inc.
