Why Hasn’t My Doctor Told Me About Cold Laser Therapy?
That’s a good question. I don’t know why YOUR knee doctor hasn’t shared the benefits of cold laser therapy with you, but I think I know the answer… First, let me just state that our office gets daily referrals from orthopedists, internal medicine doctors, rheumatologists, pain management doctors and primary care physicians.
Most physicians understand that not all patients want, need or respond well to surgery, injections or pain medications. Physicians refer patients to our office to undergo our Cold Laser Knee Program because it is considered safe, and effective, and it’s definitely worth trying if other knee treatments have failed, and before any further knee surgery is recommended or performed.
Now let me get back to answering the question.
There are two obvious reasons why your doctor hasn’t told you about cold laser treatments.
The first and most obvious reason is that they are probably unaware of the technology. Even though there are an increasing number of doctors using cold lasers, and are becoming more educated about the benefits of the treatment there are still many more physicians that do not know about it.
The other reason your doctor may not have told you about the treatment is because they are narrow minded, and they just don’t want to change their method of treatment. These doctors are skeptical about everything except for the techniques they use. It doesn’t matter what overwhelming evidence you provide them they still consider everything other than ‘conventional medicine’ a sham. (Ironically, ‘conventional medicine’, for example, prescription medication and surgery was ranked one of the leading causes of death by the CDC. In my opinion, ‘narrow minded’ physicians are one of the reasons why the U.S. is only ranked 37th in health care by the World Health Organization.) I wonder sometimes if this group of physicians is truly acting on behalf of the patient or only looking out for themselves. After all, if your knee pain significantly improves or is eliminated after completing our Cold Laser Knee Program then why would you go back to the surgeon?
The bottom line is…if you’ve tried medications, knee injections and/or knee surgery and those options haven’t helped you than don’t wait for your knee to get worse. Your quality of life doesn’t have to suffer just because you orthopedic doctor hasn’t referred you for or told you about cold laser treatments.
