For many people with acute or chronic pain, the options offered by traditional doctors are just not good enough. Long- term use of pain killers can cause liver damage, addiction, depression, deadly vascular problems and a low quality of life. Some drugs also require the use of other drugs to offset the side effects of the primary medicine. For some injuries, surgery is recommended but once again, the benefits may not outweigh the disadvantages. A recent study showed that patients who had a fake knee surgery felt as good as those that had a real knee surgery. Both surgery and prescription drug are the best answer for some but there are others who can get better results from a non-invasive treatment like High Power Intensity Laser Therapy.
