Laser therapy is a therapeutic approach that utilizes focused light to spur on a process known as photobiomodulation (PBM). During PBM, photons penetrate the muscle tissue and mix with the cytochrome c complex within mitochondria. This interaction will then begin to trigger a biological cascade of events that drives towards an improvement in cellular metabolism, reduction in pain, decrease in muscle spasm, and enhanced microcirculation to injured tissue. This method is FDA cleared and provides patients with a non-invasive, non-pharmacological alternative for pain relief.
What To Expect
Laser therapy acts by starting a process known as photobiomodulation (PBM) in which photons penetrate the tissue and interact with the Cytochrome C complex within mitochondria. To get the best therapeutic results from laser therapy, a satisfactory amount of light needs to arrive at the target tissue. Circumstances that maximize reaching target tissue include:
- Light Wavelength
- Reducing Reflections
- Minimizing Unwanted Absorption
LightForce® Therapy Lasers can effectively be applied to manage the following painful conditions:
- Neck Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Elbow & Joint Pain
- Upper Back Pain
- Low Back Pain
- Sports Injuries
- Soft Tissue Damage
- Plantar Fasciitis
What is a Class IV Therapy Laser? Effective laser therapy treatment is a direct function of energy and time as it links to the dose delivered. Applying the optimal treatment dose to cases provides consistent positive outcomes. Class IV therapy lasers produce more energy to deep structures in a shorter time.
This conclusively aids in producing an energy dose that issues in positive, reproducible outcomes. Higher wattage also happens in faster treatment times and produces changes in pain complaints that are unachievable with low power lasers. LightForce® lasers produce a level of versatility unrivalled by other Class I, II, and IIIb lasers due to their ability to treat both surface level and deep tissue conditions.
Laser therapy enables your body to utilize its own restorative powers by causing a series of healing responses in your body. During treatment, you will feel a calming warmth that distinguishes the beginning of an 18-24 hour process of changed cellular activity commencing to decreased pain and enhanced local circulation to the area treated. Most patients see outcomes and results within 3 to 5 short treatments.
LightForce® therapy lasers operate by flooding the muscle tissue with photons, which stimulates cells producing in enhanced circulation to the injured area and sequentially to a pain reduction, in a process called photobiomodulation (PBM).
