At the University of Bridgeport School of Chiropractic, we have several different models of low-level laser therapy at our disposal. The LZ30 lasers by far are the most frequently utilized, especially in our outpatient clinic. Due to its compact size, high energy output as well as its flexible and easy-to-use clinical protocols, it is the favorite of the student interns. We have been fortunate to work with the Avant Wellness team and are extremely pleased with their availability, responsiveness and support.
The Avant laser is by far the preferred modality for so many of the conditions we treat. It is extremely effective for muscular skeletal inflammatory conditions, reduction of swelling, and relief for neuropathies. We have almost unusual success in treating advanced knee osteoarthritis. We often reduce the synovitis to such a degree that we find our elderly patients can often delay—or completely avoid– knee replacement surgery.
It is important that our clinicians and chiropractic students have access to quality tools used for pain relief and rehabilitation. Logan University is proud to partner Avant Wellness System as one of our laser providers who offer technology to support the body’s ability to heal and recover.
Avant lasers are easy to use and the programs are quick. We have had great success with chronic shoulder and low back pain, either due to surgery or underlying pathology, like frozen shoulder.
We have been using the hand-held laser for many patients with shoulder and knee problems. All of the patients responded well to the laser. They experienced reduced pain and improved function after just a few treatments.
Avant lasers have proved to be an invaluable tool in clinical classes, rotations, and in private practice. They offer a way to treat areas needles can’t reach, and can magnify the effects of acupuncture, combining well with standard treatments. Much gratitude for making such a powerful device available.
