How does LASER THERAPY work in the body?
How does a laser work?
A specific dose is determined for your condition based on chronic or acute, region of the body, and other individual factors.
The laser is moved over an area in a slow scanning motion.
A mild warmth sensation under the wide laser beam and a feeling of relaxation of the muscles.
Laser therapy is applied by determining a specific dose (much like mediation) and is dependent on available laser power, the total area to be treated, and amount of inflammation of the tissues receiving laser therapy. Cold laser is known as class 3. It is has up to thousands of times less power which can make it either ineffective for the condition or making more treatments necessary. It can be difficult to treat as large of an area as a class 4 laser or cover as many areas per session. The doctor will explain this in more depth at your visits and how it will be specifically applied to your condition. Class 4 laser therapy has been proven comfortable, SAFE and EFFECTIVE in thousands of patients and many clinical trials.
Examples Conditions that Respond to Laser Therapy
Low back pain, acute, chronic, cervical pain, disc disorders, nerve pain, muscle pain, peripheral neuropathy, TMJ syndrome, shoulder tendinopathy, frozen shoulder, knee degenerative arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, shingles, carpal tunnel syndrome, Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis
All of this adds up to a win-win situation for our patients when Class 4 laser therapy is included in their treatment plan.
The use of lasers for the purpose of stimulating living tissues (photobiomodulation), not destroying has a history of over 50 years.
The first use of low power laser to stimulate healing is credited to Dr. Andre Mester of Semmelweis University in Budapest, Hungary for his infamous wound healing studies in 1967.
The addition of this new therapeutic modality allows the practitioner to enhance the patient’s healing in multiple ways. Pain reduction can occur through decreasing inflammatory chemicals, decreasing nerve irritability, and even nerve regeneration. Healing tissue has shown to be stronger from laser therapy stimulation than without. Muscle soreness and swelling can be decreased allowing a faster return to activity and decreased treatments.
