According to Healio Rheumatology,” The FDA has granted clearance to Multi Radiance Medical’s FibroLux therapy laser for the treatment of pain in patients with fibromyalgia, according to a company press release. The clearance approves the laser as a way for patients with fibromyalgia to undergo non-invasive, non-pharmacologic therapy for pain.”
Laser has been shown to be a complementary procedure that can provide considerable pain relief and increase the patient’s quality of life.
Chiropractic Economics writes that “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, photochemical 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.“
Laser therapies are medical treatments that use focused light. Unlike most light sources, light from a laser (which stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation) is tuned to specific wavelengths. This allows it to be focused into powerful beams. Laser light is so intense that it can be used to shape diamonds or cut steel, ( Healthline).
