What is FibroLux?

FibroLux is a groundbreaking laser therapy developed to provide relief to individuals battling the relentless pain of fibromyalgia. By channeling specific wavelengths of light, this laser therapy penetrates the affected tissues, promoting healing and reducing inflammation without the need for medication or invasive procedures. FibroLux aims to disrupt the cycle of pain at its source, offering a new lease on life for those who have long sought after effective pain management.

What can FibroLux help with?

  • Chronic pain and tenderness associated with fibromyalgia
  • Widespread muscle pain and tenderness
  • Chronic fatigue and sleep disturbances
  • Increased sensitivity to pain, known as hyperalgesia
  • Stiffness and decreased mobility in the morning or after inactivity
  • Fibro fog (cognitive impairments like memory lapses and difficulty concentrating)
  • Headaches, including migraines, related to fibromyalgia
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms, often accompanying fibromyalgia
  • Emotional and psychological distress, including anxiety and depression

How does FibroLux work?

FibroLux leverages low-level laser therapy (LLLT) to deliver specific wavelengths of light into the body’s tissues. This stimulates cellular activity and promotes natural healing mechanisms. The light energy is absorbed by the mitochondria, the powerhouse of the cell, and enhances adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production.

Increased ATP levels accelerate tissue repair and reduce inflammation, thereby alleviating pain and improving function in fibromyalgia sufferers. Moreover, FibroLux also modulates the nervous system’s response to pain and reduces the hyperactivity of nerve fibers responsible for transmitting pain signals.

What are the benefits of FibroLux?

  • Non-invasive treatment with no need for surgery or medication
  • Minimal to no side effects, making it a safe option for long-term use
  • Provides targeted pain relief directly to the affected areas
  • Promotes natural healing by stimulating the body’s own repair mechanisms
  • Offers significant improvement in symptoms like pain, fatigue, and sleep disturbances
  • Easy and quick treatment sessions, with no downtime required
  • May reduce the need for pain medication, decreasing the risk of dependency

Am I a candidate for FibroLux?

If you’re battling fibromyalgia, FibroLux may be the breakthrough you need. Dr. Cohen and his team will determine your candidacy through a comprehensive evaluation, discussing your medical history and symptoms. During the consultation, they’ll assess your condition’s severity and how FibroLux can be tailored to your specific needs, ensuring a personalized approach to pain management. Generally, you may be a suitable candidate for FibroLux if you:

  • Suffer from chronic pain associated with fibromyalgia
  • Have tried other treatments with limited success
  • Seek a non-invasive alternative to medication or surgery
  • Are looking for relief from symptoms like fatigue, sleep disturbances, and cognitive difficulties
  • Wish to reduce dependence on pain medication due to side effects or personal preference
  • Are in overall good health and can undergo light-based therapy sessions
  • Are committed to following through with the recommended treatment plan

What happens during the FibroLux session?

Your FibroLux treatment begins with a consultation with our providers under the guidance of Dr. Cohen. Your provider will use the FibroLux software to identify the 18 fibromyalgia tender points on your body. You’ll be asked to rate your pain at each tender point, focusing on areas where pain scores exceed a three.

Your provider positions the FibroLux device over each identified tender point to administer pain-relieving laser therapy for 2 minutes per tender point. Treatment sessions typically last between 6 to 10 minutes.

What are the side effects and

Most patients experience no adverse effects, making it a preferred option for managing fibromyalgia pain. On rare occasions, some may notice slight redness or warmth at the treatment site, which typically resolves quickly without intervention.

When will I see the

Many patients feel the benefits of FibroLux almost immediately after their session. The reduction in pain and improvement in symptoms can be noticed shortly after the treatment. However, optimal results appear over a few sessions performed once or twice a week. In clinical trials, FibroLux has led to an average 52% reduction in tender points and a 53% reduction in pain.
