How does LASER THERAPY work in the body?

How does a laser work?

Laser Therapy in Sarasota

HOW IS IT APPLIED?


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.


WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?


A mild warmth sensation under the wide laser beam and a feeling of relaxation of the muscles.


HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?


  • Treatment sessions take about 15 - 20 minutes
  • Length of visits vary depending on condition
  • 4 – 8 visits are common


HOW DOES CLASS 4 WARM LASER DIFFER FROM COLD LASER THERAPY FOR PAIN AND HEALING?


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.

Light energy is used to stimulate the  body’s repair mechanisms.


Photobiomodulation


  • Stimulating blood flow
  • Relaxing muscles
  • Decreasing swelling
  • Decreasing pain signals
  • Stimulating nerve repair
  • Stimulating collagen production


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.
