Pain Management


What is Chronic Pain?

Chronic pain is any pain that lasts for more than a three month period. The pain can become progressively worse or reoccur for an extended period of time that goes beyond the standard healing process. Chronic pain can affect both men and women and is often related to low back pain, sport injuries, or arthritic pain. This type of pain can cause a signi cant decrease in quality of life, both physically and emotionally, as one is limited in their ability to fully function.

Who Is This Treatment For?

Pain management treatment is an excellent and succesful treatment for athletes, or clients suffering from day to day discomfort.

How Does Pain Management Work?

At Vancouver Medi Spa we use deep heating as an immediate analgesic effect. It reduces inflammation, increases flexibility & mobility and speeds up the healing process. The wave of heat from the laser penetrates the areas of inflammation and allows the inflamed tissue to be reduced, in which case pain decreases and in most cases heals the areas of injury. Fotona’s advanced technology provides an alternative method to treat and manage pain effectively without the common risks of typical methods like pain medication. While pain medications often lead to addiction and dependency, a Fotona laser treatment is a natural and effective way to reduce or eliminate chronic pain. This treatment is speci cally bene cial to those suffering from bromyalgia, arthritis and sports related injuries. Both men and women suffering from chronic pain can bene t from this treatment.

By applying targeted heat into the muscle tissues and skin, the tissues are loosened allowing the lymphatic uid to ow easier. With easier ow
of the lymphatic uid, swelling is reduced which releases tension and pain in the targeted area. The heat also stimulates a healing process through photobiomodulation and the creation of connective tissues to strengthen the area experiencing pain. The Fotona laser has special settings that allow the technician to penetrate heat deeper and more effectively compared to other lasers.

How Long Does This Treatment Take?

A typical treatment of one area is approx. 15 minutes and a series of 10 treatments, 2 times per week is the protocol for most conditions affecting the back, knee, shoulder, face, feet and chest.

Is This Treatment Painful?

The treatment is painless with only a warm sensation felt and no downtime afterwards. You can go back to your daily activities immediately after your treatment.

Expected Results

Each person is different but during the treatment, you can expect minimal to mild discomfort. Patients can expect some improvement in as little as 1 treatment, but should complete a course of 6-8 treatments, with two treatments per week for optimal results. Most patients can resume their daily activities immediately following the treatment.
