- Neck Pain
- Shoulder & Knee
- Disc Issues
- Sports injuries
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Sprains & Strains
- Low Back pain
Deep Tissue Laser Therapy uses a process called photobiomodulation to change the condition of damaged tissue by stimulating cellular metabolism, thereby accelerating the healing process. The lasers operate in the near-infrared spectrum. As the light pours into the tissue, photons will be scattered reflected and absorbed the light that penetrates into the tissue can be absorbed by melanin hemoglobin, oxyhemoglobins, and water. Energy from these absorptions events will be dissipated at heat, generating a soothing warmth in the tissue. The primary target is the Cytochrome C-complex which is found in the inner membrane of the mitochondria and is a vital component in the electron transportation chain that drives cellular metabolism.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Laser therapy is a non-invasive technique to help reduce pain and inflammation. Laser therapy can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs. This pain relief treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery. Laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the condition being treated. Laser therapy 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. Patients generally see results after 3 to 5 treatments. Your practitioner will develop a treatment plan that is optimal for your condition.
