“After being told by 3 orthopedic surgeons that I would not be able to move my shoulder without a full shoulder replacement, I became very concerned. I knew I did not want the surgery, but didn’t think I had an option. My shoulder was completely stuck in place and I could not raise my arm or move it at all. My consultation at Restoralife gave me new hope. I was told with a combination of stem cell therapy, platelet rich plasma (PRP) and laser therapy, they believed they could help me avoid surgery. After 6 weeks of treatment, I have 75 to 80% range of motion and am back to working out 4 times a week. If I am ever told I need to have surgery again, Restoralife will be my first stop.” – Mr. G, Viera FL
RestoraLife™ preformed our first Tx360 pain relief procedure today. A Trigeminal Neuralgia patient left pain free after years of suffering. We have a long road with her, but she is beginning to respond. Being able to treat these patients that suffer from “the suicide condition” is an honor. It is not easy and they come in with very little hope, but we give it our all. In May 2015, we had two patients come in with moderate to severe atypical Trigeminal Neuralgia and they NO longer have pain!! Tx360 is just another tool in our non surgical, non invasive, pain management arsenal.
Growth Factor Analysis (PRP Injections): Growth factors released from activated platelets initiate and modulate wound healing in both soft and hard tissues. The concentration of growth factors also increased with increasing platelet number.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an autologous concentration of human platelets in a small volume of plasma. Therefore, the term PRP is preferred to autologous platelet gel, plasma-rich growth factors (PRGFs), or a mere autologous platelet concentrate. Because it is a concentration of platelets, it is also a concentration of the 7 fundamental protein growth factors proved to be actively secreted by platelets to initiate all wound
healing. These growth factors include the 3 isomeres of platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF, PDGF, and PDGF), 2 of the numerous transforming
growth factors- (TGF1 and TGF2), vascular endothelial growth factor, and epithelial growth factor. All of these growth factors have been documented toexist in platelets.1,2 Because these concentrated platelets are suspended in a small volume of plasma, PRP is more that just a platelet concentrate; it also contains the 3 proteins in blood known to act as cell adhesion molecules for osteoconduction and as a matrix for bone, connective tissue, and epithelial migration. These cell adhesion molecules are fibrin itself, fibronectin, and vitronectin.
Platelet concentrates are potentially useful in wound-healing applications because they function as both a tissue sealant and a drug delivery system that contains a host of powerful mitogenic and chemotactic growth factors. However, the method of platelet-rich plasma preparation has a potentially significant impact on the different levels of platelet recovery and activation.
Because it is an autogenous preparation, PRP is inherently safe and therefore free from concerns over transmissible diseases such as HIV, hepatitis, West Nile fever, and Cruetzfeld-Jacob disease (CJD) (“mad cow disease”). It therefore is also well accepted by patients.

85% to 90% of people in the United States will suffer from back pain at some time during their natural lives. Back pain is the second most common reason people visit their family doctors (following upper respiratory infections). On any given day, almost two percent of the entire United States work force is disabled by back pain. In people under 40 years of age, back pain is the most common reason for the inability to perform daily tasks. It also is the direct cause of exuberant health care expenses from $20 to $30 billion, yearly.
Pain that primarily affects the back should be distinguished from a spinal condition that results in mostly leg pain, a condition commonly called sciatica. Typically, sciatica is the result of a “pinched nerve” in the spinal column. In most cases, the cause of the sciatica is clearly defined; for example, a disc problem or arthritis. The cause of an episode of back pain, on the other hand, often is more difficult to pinpoint, and may be related to the discs, joints, or soft tissue supports (muscles, ligaments and tendons).
Acute back pain refers to a brief, sudden episode of pain. Most people recover from acute back pain within two weeks with minimal treatment. Using over-the-counter pain relievers, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen (Advil), and resuming normal activities as the pain permits are simple and effective treatments for most people with acute back pain.
Most back pain is relieved within a few days to a couple of weeks with simple treatment. When back pain lingers beyond four weeks – which is chronic, persistent back pain — further medical evaluation is required. This evaluation focuses on a careful assessment of the patient’s medical history and a thorough physical examination to identify, if possible, a precise cause of the pain. In rare cases, cancer or an infection is found. More commonly, back pain is related to the spinal joints, spinal discs, or supporting muscles in the back.
Back strain is the top cause (85 percent of cases) of back pain in the United States.
Other causes of back pain include:
• Disc herniation – A herniated disc is a rupture or tear of the cartilage that surrounds the vertebral discs. Pressure from the vertebrae above and below the affected disc squeezes the cushioning substance (nucleus pulposus) out of the disc. The nucleus pulposus can press against spinal nerve roots. This can cause severe leg pain and may cause nerve damage if not treated properly.
• Osteoarthritis/spinal stenosis – This is characterized by the constriction or narrowing of the vertebral canal, the space that surrounds the spinal column.
• Ankylosing spondylitis – Ankylosing spondylitis is a chronic inflammatory disease that first affects the spine and adjacent structures. As the disease progresses, vertebrae will fuse together. This disease has a strong hereditary tendency and primarily affects men under 30 years of age.
• Spondylolisthesis – Spondylolisthesis is the partial forward movement (dislocation) of one vertebra over the one below it. Usually, the fifth lumbar vertebra is dislocated over the first sacral vertebra.
• Infection (less than 1 percent of cases)
• Cancer (less than 1 percent of cases)
• Fracture (small, slight break)
• Trauma – An injury due to an accident or fall may cause a fracture or muscle strain.
• Non-spinal causes — Non-spinal causes of low back pain include abdominal aortic aneurysms, kidney stones, infection, or perforating stomach ulcer.
Evaluating the patient’s medical history often is the doctor’s most powerful diagnostic tool. The doctor asks a series of questions to help identify possible causes of the back pain. The questions may focus on lifestyle factors, such as where you live, what type of work you do, and what activities or hobbies you enjoy; when your pain began; where your pain is located and what effect it has had on your daily activities; and whether your pain has responded to any treatment. The doctor also will ask about your medical, surgical, family, and social history.
Additional testing – X-rays, MRI/CT scans, EMGs, and lab tests – are necessary in a small number of cases. For example, the MRI provides little information about the condition of the ligaments, muscles and tendons. However, it may demonstrate common degenerative, (wear and tear), changes in the discs or joints in the spine. If the pain is caused by a neurological change or trauma, or if the patient has a persistent fever, is losing weight, has numbness or weakness or loss of bowel or bladder control, one or more of these diagnostic tests may be done immediately.
Most back pain can be successfully treated with conservative (non-surgical) measures. Conservative treatment includes activity (standing, walking, working) as tolerated, acetaminophen (non-aspirin over-the-counter pain reliever), and/or an anti-inflammatory medication, and cold packs to diminish swelling and pain. Usually, the pain will subside within four to seven days. If there is no improvement after five to seven days, contact Laser Pain Care for Class 1V, non-invasive laser treatments! FREE Consultations.
Laser therapy is becoming a leading force in treating Peripheral Neuropathy. With all the medical advances we have today, doctors still lack any effective treatments for this kind of nerve damage. Doctors are reduced to masking the pain and symptoms of the disease with medications. Laser therapy has proven to be very effective in treating this disease; significantly reducing reported patient pain and numbness. Peripheral neuropathy, a result of damage to your peripheral nerves, often causes weakness, numbness and pain, usually in your hands and feet.
Peripheral Neuropathy is a disease caused by damage to the sensory nervous system. This includes all nerves outside of the spinal cord. The most common cause is Diabetes. Although other issues such as kidney problems, vitamin deficiencies, alcoholism and statin use have been know to cause neuropathic problems. Many people that have received chemotherapy treatments also develop neuropathy. Peripheral Neuropathy usually presents itself with burning pain, numbness and loss of coordination in the legs, arms or both. Sensory loss is also an indication commonly starting in the fingers and toes then progressively moving up into the extremities. There can also be visible color changes in a patient’s skin tone; looking like a patchy dark tan, red and/or purple tones to the skin color. Many people with this problem experience an increase in pain at night right before bedtime. Peripheral neuropathy can become so debilitating that people lose their ability to perform normal daily tasks such as buttoning a shirt, walking to the bathroom or driving a car.
Medical technology is now starting to make great advances in treating this progressive and chronic disease through non-invasive, high-level laser therapy. Treatment with laser is a highly effective option for people who have Peripheral Neuropathy. Patients begin to regain feeling in there extremities after just one treatment. Lasers work by transmitting photon energy over the affected area. The photon energy increases circulation relieving burning pain associated with the affected area. Increased circulation, among other things helps to regenerate sensory nerves. Laser treatment is repeated in a series of 20 to 30 minute sessions for 6 to 8 weeks. There is no burning, cutting or cellular damage involved with this non-invasive laser treatment. In fact, most patients report a warm relaxing feeling while undergoing treatment.
Laser therapy is a new innovative approach to pain care. Patients suffering from Peripheral Neuropathy now have options that can relieve their pain and numbness without medication. The body starts to heal itself from the very first session and lasting pain relief is now a possibility. Laser therapy is a non-invasive and safe pain relieving option. Patients finish therapy sessions with lasting pain relief and a smile. Laser Pain Care is proud to be able to offer such an effective treatment with an FDA clearance of non-significant risk, which means it’s very safe.
At 84 years I have been subject to most medical problems of old age. I’ve had cataracts, carpal tunnel, diabetes, type II, colon cancer, hearing loss, arthritis, sciatica, and most recently back surgery for spinal stenosis. In the two and a half years since then, I’ve met with pain doctors who gave me prescriptions for hydrocodone and a co-pay of $45.
When I asked about optional treatments I was told there were none. I inquired about laser procedure. Three doctors told me I couldn’t do that because I had two metal strips in my back. Then I saw a notice about “Lunch & Learn” and thought I had would find out what Laser treatment was all about. Nicole assured me that almost half of the patients had metal strips and NONE have had a problem or discomfort. With a 90% success rate, I decided to give it a try for both my sciatica and lower back pain.
It really works! My pain and discomfort for both conditions are a thing of the past. I was concerned about the cost. Though FDA approved, Medicare and health insurers don’t contribute to the payment. When I thought about my costs for hearing aids, dental care, and co-pays, I decided Laser Pain Care was a most affordable and worthwhile investment. It not only alleviated the pain but worked on the cause. Fortunately, there are payment plans available to spread the charges over a year with credit cards accepted and direct debits to your bank account for convenience.
I have become an advocate because I think there are many people who can benefit from this laser pain care innovation. Current apathy and lack of knowledge from the standard medical community upsets me. I tell all of my friends my experience.
I am well satisfied and happy with my new health and return to normal activity without pain. I am “re-focused” not “retired”. I am optimistic about the years ahead. As Mark Twain said, “I’m going to live to be 100 … or die trying”.

Stop suffering from the pain in your back. Our Melbourne pain clinic professionals at Laser Pain Care will give you a free consultation, informing you of the acute or chronic conditions you may be suffering from. After just a few short treatments (without needing surgery or medications), your pain will subside and you can get back to your life and hobbies: exercise, gardening, sleeping with little to no pain, shopping, dining out with friends, etc.
Here are a few reasons why your lower back may be hurting so badly:
Your neuro-muscular-skeletal system is delicately balanced and interconnected. When a muscle is too weak or even too strong, it places abnormal stress on another muscle. The muscle that is stressed will compensate for a while, but eventually it will begin to hurt.
Strengthening the abdominals can help prevent lower back pain. One of the chief causes of lower back pain is weak abdominal muscles. The abdominals hold the lower torso and if they are weak, the back muscles will be forced into strainful positions and efforts.
