<p>(<a href=NewsUSA) – When Americans feel a pain coming on -; whether from a headache, backache or sore muscle -; they reach for their medicine cabinets. And while popping a pain pill on occasion probably won’t cause lasting harm, overuse of even over-the-counter drugs can prove harmful.

Most people think nothing of taking painkillers like Advil, Aleve, Ibuprofen, Motrin and aspirin. But these common pills belong to a class of drugs called Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs), which are known to cause gastric ulcers, cardiovascular problems, gastrointestinal bleeding, and liver and kidney damage.

Acetaminophen, or Tylenol, can damage the liver, especially in those who drink alcohol on a regular basis. In fact, according to the Food and Drug Administration, Osteoarthritis” liver toxicity from acetaminophen poisoning is the most common cause of acute liver failure in the United States.

Taking more than the recommended dosage increases the risk of side effects, as does taking the drugs over a long period of time, Those managing chronic pain with NSAIDs or acetaminophen prove especially susceptible to damage.

Osteoarthritis patients often use over-the-counter or prescription painkillers to relieve pain and inflammation. But in doing so, they risk developing new health problems, some of which may prove life-threatening.

But there are other ways to treat pain. For example, the FDA has recently approved an at-home low-level laser device, the QLaser, for treating osteoarthritis in the hands. Low-level lasers have also been approved for treating carpal tunnel syndrome and myofascial shoulder pain.

Low-level laser therapy uses laser light to ease pain by stimulating endorphins, reduce inflammation and encourage cell regeneration. Long used by professional athletes and the British military, low-level laser therapy is non-invasive and produces no known side effects.

The low-level lasers approved by the FDA are completely safe. “Laser light is as gentle as the kiss of a butterfly,” Dr. Larry Lytle, in his book “Universal Healer, Osteoarthritis,” “but from a healing perspective, it is quite possibly more effective than drugs or surgery.”

Burn Victim Turns to Laser Therapy for Speedy Recovery

<p>(<a href=NewsUSA) – Kip Lytle didn’t check the water’s temperature before stepping into his hot tub. Unaware that the hot tub thermostat had malfunctioned and the water temperature was 140 degrees, Lytle received painful second-degree burns on his calf.

Doctors told Lytle the burns would take months to heal. But Lytle decided to try an unconventional treatment. His father, Dr. Larry Lytle, was in the process of developing a low-level laser therapy product called the QLaser, which the FDA recently approved for the treatment of osteoarthritis in the hands. Having seen the healing benefits that low-level laser therapy could provide, Kip decided to try it on his burn.

“I had the low-level laser treating the burns within 30 seconds,” says Kip. “I used the laser for an hour twice a day.”

The result? A severe wound that healed, not in months as the doctors had predicted, but in only days. Lytle was able to wear pants again within a week. The burn was almost completely healed at nine days. And at four weeks, there was no scarring, and there was little evidence that an injury had occurred at all.

The QLaser hasn’t undergone double-blind studies to prove that it works on burns, and the company makes no treatment claims in this regard. But, says Lytle, “there’s no doubt in my mind that it speeded my recovery and healing from this injury.”

Many medical professionals agree with Lytle’s assessment. Low-level laser therapy has been used to help speed healing since the late 1960s. The lasers work by directing concentrated light at bodily cells — the light seems to increase cell energy and circulation, and helps heal damaged cell membranes. Low-level laser treatments might also help cells absorb nutrients more effectively. Patients typically report experiencing reduced inflammation, less pain and faster healing. The lasers cannot harm healthy cells. In fact, Class I low-level lasers like the Q1000 are so gentle that they do not harm eyes.

Low-level laser therapy is non-invasive, has no known side effects and works with the body’s immune system to promote healing.
