Laser Therapy Treatments
Laser Therapy Treatments target a vast number of physical issues including diabetes, circulation problems, neuropathic pain, chemo related peripheral neuropathy and more. At RN Medical Solutions & Diet Center, we provide a variety of laser therapy treatments using state of the art, FDA Approved HealthLight systems and methods.

Additionally, patients and clients may experience:
- Pain relief
- Decreased tension
- Decreased inflammation

What is acute inflammation?
Acute inflammation is an almost instant inflammation of an affected area. It may be from trauma (like an ankle sprain or broken bone) or your body's reaction to an infection (like a virus).
Acute inflammation is fairly easy to spot: pain, redness, swelling, a warm, tingling sensation, and sometimes even loss of function are associated with acute inflammation.
But without this necessary mechanism in our body, we may not be around for very long. Acute inflammation is your body's way of healing itself, and with this process makes your body a little stronger.
What is chronic inflammation?
Chronic inflammation is acute's opposite: long lasting inflammation that can cause serious injury and health issues as the year's progress.
As with acute inflammation, your body produces chemicals to start the inflammation process, which helps to heal. However, with chronic inflammation, your body doesn't stop producing the chemicals, which can attack healthy cells, blood vessels and tissue, making them weaker.
Through recent medical discoveries, we have learned that chronic inflammation is behind such life-shortening diseases as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, autoimmune diseases, obesity, arthritis, migraines and so much more.
What causes inflammation?
Well, besides the obvious trauma ones, the majority of inflammation cases, particularly chronic ones, are from your lifestyle. A poor diet, drinking too much alcohol, not exercising enough, and stress are just some of the things that can contribute to inflammation problems. Once the inflammation process has begun, your body becomes more susceptible to infections, which can lead to more inflammation, and the snowball that was running downhill has gained a lot of speed.
What can I do to fix this?
Probably the same thing your doctor has already told you: cut down on the processed foods and foods high in sugar; get some more exercise; cut down on the alcohol and drink more water and try to reduce your stress. And in a perfect world, you can do all of those things. But we don't live in a perfect world.
That's where RN Medical Solutions' Laser Therapy programs can help. In addition to fixing as many of those things as possible, Laser Therapy can help reduce inflammation, both acute and chronic, which can help you lead a healthier, more productive life.
We use light therapy in our clinic and in home settings. Light therapy has been in use by the medical profession to increase circulation and reduce pain and inflammation for more than 20 years. Popularity has increased exponentially grown as research continues into the many ways light therapy can help.
