The QLaser system has been granted market clearance from the Food and Drug Administration to compliment the other healing effects the QLaser can provide the professional and the individual consumer.
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a painful joint disease that can place severe restrictions on daily activities and quality of life. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “OA which is the most common form of arthritis, often causes weakness and disability, interferes with people’s ability to work and results in costly joint replacement. The prevalence of OA increases rapidly beginning at age 45, affecting people in the prime of their work years. One in two Americans will get some form of OA in their lifetime and 27 million adults currently have it.”
Arthritis and associated conditions, such as OA, cost the U.S. economy nearly $128 billion per year in medical care and indirect expenses, including lost wages and productivity, according to the 2003 medical Expenditure Panel Survey. The total annual cost of OA per person living with OA is approximately $5700.00.
“The pain comes and goes, prevents sleep, makes walking difficult, causes you to drop or spill things, and renders you unable to sign your name or write.” According to Dr. Larry Lytle, in his book “Universal Healer: Osteoarthritis.” “In short, it is the most common form of disability.”
There is at present no cure for Osteoarthritis, but effective non-drug treatments can safely improve the quality of life of millions of individuals.
The QLaser Healing system using the Q-1000 and 660 Flash Probe helps the body diminish pain from OA by stimulating the release of endorphins (the body’s natural painkillers) while also helping the body decrease inflammation, amplify circulation, helps heal damaged cell membranes and boost cellular energy levels, resulting in less pain and faster healing.
Keeping a device like the QLaser System at home can assist people to address their OA without turning to costly medical treatments or dangerous drugs. Approximately 500 deaths per year are attributed to OA; these numbers have increased over the past ten years. OA deaths are likely underestimated as gastrointestinal bleeding due to treatment with NSIAID’s is not counted according to JJ Sacks as reported in the article “Deaths from arthritis and other rheumatic conditions in the 2004 Journal of Rheumatol.
