Osteoarthritis is commonly considered a "wear-and-tear" process and is associated with degenerative changes in the disc.
This derangement causes an increased strain, as well as a loss of motion of the gliding joints of the spine. These gliding joints (facets) are found in pairs, along the entire spine, and their function is to allow for movement and flexibility of the spine.

Amazingly, her success rate treating patients with moderate to severe arthritic pain has been up to 90%. And, it lasts!

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Sufferers Can Find Relief in Cold Laser Therapy
by Rachel Krech
August 8, 2007
People who suffer from painful carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms may have a new way to fight the pain. A new technology known as "cold laser therapy" could reduce the pain caused by the disease.
What cold laser therapy actually does is that it speeds up the healing process after injury to fingers, hands, and wrists. When one of these areas is injured, it creates an accumulation of watery fluid in tissue spaces, which causes extreme and painful swelling. It can also lead to long-time soreness from an injury that happened years ago.

An evidence-based look at laser therapy shows promise for musculoskeletal conditions.
As early as the 1960s, Endre Mester studied the effects of low-energy argon and helium-neon lasers on the behavior of biological tissues and cells, both in vivo and in vitro. In the following decade, researchers Freidrich Plog and Joseph Skovajsa presented data on the positive effects of low-energy lasers for wound healing, pain relief and laser acupuncture.
