Practice offers laser therapy for back, joint pain


NEW HARTFORD — Central New York Brain and Spine Neurosurgery, 83 Genesee St., now offers laser therapy in the Utica area with the dual goal of treating patient pain without injections or surgery while minimizing reliance on potentially habit-forming drugs.

The addition of the effective technology is part of CNY Brain and Spine’s continued investment in advanced technologies and progressive procedures in the treatment of neck, back, joint pain (elbow, shoulder, knee) and headache.

Laser therapy has been used effectively for many years, but advances in technology have produced “the next generation of laser therapy” with the new
MLS (Multiwave Locked System) Therapy Laser which uses specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions.

With laser therapy, Dr. Nicholas Qandah said he can offer relief to those suffering with both chronic and acute ailments such as back and joint pain, tendonitis, arthritis, disc disease and sprains and strains.

Laser therapy is painless, usually lasting several minutes, and most patients see positive results in just 1-3 treatments.

“We are very excited to be able to offer this new and dramatic treatment option to patients,” Dr. Qandah said.

“When a physical condition or injury affects mobility or quality of life, there is one goal: a rapid return to every-day activities,” Qandah added.

“We now have the most advanced equipment on the market to deliver these results; results that include a very rapid reduction in pain, strong anti-inflammatory effect, and immediate improvement of local blood circulation,” Qandah continued.

He said, “More and more, our patients are looking for effective treatment options that are less invasive, have no side effects, provide rapid results and speed the healing process.”

“Laser therapy provides us with an opportunity to meet the needs of our patients, and offer the highest levels of care possible,” the doctor added.

“We take pride in being a local leader in technology, and educating our patients on the various levels of care available,” he said.

“Laser therapy is the future of the pain
management industry, and we feel our patients deserve to have that option when choosing the best care for themselves,”
Qandah said.
