Heal yourself from the inside with a deep-penetrating laser treatment in just five minutes!
By Causenta Wellness
This state-of-the-art laser system, which was designed by a colleague of Causenta’s Founder & CEO Dr. Tom Incledon, is very impressive. It is a joint pain treatment that works in one five-minute session!
The machine has a powerful infrared light that is hard to see, but when visible is slightly pink to our eyes. You know it is working because it is warm to the touch; the heat and light energy it carries penetrate deep into the muscle providing joint pain relief without medication.
Healing begins from within
It is one of the many technology tools Causenta’s dedicated team uses to provide non-invasive options for joint pain treatment and help patients feel their best.
When you apply the device to an area of concern – say shoulder, elbow, knee, or neck – for just five to 10 minutes, the laser system starts a dynamic healing process within the muscle.
What does that mean?
The laser’s energy actually interacts with your cells so that they “wake up” and start to heal themselves more rapidly. It is believed that the laser interacts with the body to increase energy production in the mitochondria of cells.
“We have had patients come in without any movement in the shoulder. They can’t lift it up, can’t do push-ups or chin-ups,” says Incledon. “And, after 5 minutes, they have a full range of motion, no pain, and can do all types of movements they weren’t able to before the treatment.”
Secondary effects of deep penetrating lasers also boost wellness. They include protein synthesis and growth factor secretion. Protein synthesis is the biological process in which cells generate new proteins and is one of the most fundamental processes in our bodies.
Growth factors, which are commonly considered to be a subset of cytokines, refer to specific proteins that stimulate cell growth, differentiation, survival, and tissue repair. They can be secreted by different types of cells and work locally near the site of energy.
Both of these processes are started during the healing process that the deep penetrating laser brings to life and further enhance the effectiveness of the treatment.
Who can benefit?
This technology is ideal for people who have sudden or long-term joint pain caused by any of the common culprits, including arthritis; bursitis (an inflammation of the cushioning pads around joints); lupus; certain infectious diseases, such as mumps, influenza, and hepatitis; cancer; osteoporosis; overuse or infection; chondromalacia of the patella, or a breakdown of the cartilage in the kneecap; injury; fibromyalgia; and gout. It is a great non-invasive alternative treatment for joint pain without injections, steroids, or other more traditional joint pain relief treatments.
What can you expect?
The laser system is loud when you turn it on, but there is no pain with the applications. The treatment session can often feel like a massage to the area of concern as the device is applied in circles on the area. The heat also makes the experience soothing and comfortable for the patient as the laser penetrates the skin and does its healing work.
One of Causenta’s highly trained technicians will program the amount of time needed for a session in the computer panel and then place the wand of the device directly on the treatment area. “Often, during the treatment, we will move the treatment area to help the laser get full penetration,” says Incledon. “The movement also helps the connective tissues to realign. The idea behind this technique is that with this laser system, we can fix the joint pain in one treatment session and make it permanent.”
The movement during treatment mimics what might be done in a physical therapy session. Causenta’s team of physical therapists and exercise scientists know how best to work with the body and move muscles near the joints for optimal results and maximum joint pain relief. Our professionals can also work with you on a customized plan to help ensure your results last long after your laser system treatment and help you achieve goals you thought were impossible before your treatment at Causenta.
Other treatment options
A similar tool sometimes recommended for patients with joint pain is the ARPWave. This tool can provide relief quickly and effectively. The ARPWave device sends an electrical signal into the body alleviating pain and discomfort.
This technology can be used on patients who have sudden joint pain from an injury or on-going joint paint from an auto-immune disorder such as lupus, as well as patients with chronic pain caused by conditions like diabetes.

What else can you do?
No matter which technology tool you choose, these alternative treatments for joint pain relief can reduce symptoms quickly without medication and leave you feeling great. They also work best when combined with a healthy diet full of colorful fruits and vegetables, regular exercise, minimal to moderate alcohol consumption, and refraining from smoking.
Incledon recommends all of these habits for staying healthy and doing your best to avoid developing chronic conditions or diseases such as cancer. “It is much easier to be preventative and aware of your health than to try to treat advanced health concerns,” he says. “Get regular check-ups with your doctor.”
