Deep tissue laser therapy accelerates your body’s own natural healing process through photo-bio-stimulation.
Laser therapy is a non-invasive technique to help reduce pain and inflammation. It can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs. This pain relief treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to access a viable alternative to drugs and surgery.
Laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the condition being treated. These treatments must be administered directly to skin, as laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing. You will feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered.
Class 4 deep-tissue laser therapy can form an essential part of any treatment protocol. When you become injured, your cells sustain chemical damage. Deep-tissue laser therapy boosts the healing process by photo-biostimulating (regenerating) these damaged cells. This therapy excites the kinetic energy of cells by transmitting photons. The skin is able to absorb the photons via a photo-chemical effect, not a photo-thermal one; therefore, there is no heat damage sustained by the tissues. Once these photons reach the cells, they trigger a cascade of beneficial activities, such as stimulating mitochondria, igniting enzyme production, increasing vasodilation and lymphatic drainage, synthesizing ATP, and elevating collagen formation substances to prevent scar tissue formation. This helps treat long-term joint mobility issues and chronic myofascial pain syndromes.
Some of the physiological benefits of Class 4 laser therapy:
- Increase blood flow to low blood tissue like tendons and ligaments to aid in bringing oxygen and nutrients to the tissue for repair.
- Increase internal tissue temperature.
- Reduce inflammation
- Allow energy to assist in repair of injured tissue.
- Speed recovery time from sports injuries.
- Decrease toxin production.
