What is Laser Therapy?

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

How Does Laser Therapy Work?

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
  • Power

Treatment Solutions

Laser therapy is applied to manage acute and chronic conditions as well as post-activity recovery. It is additionally utilized as another substitute for prescription drugs, as well as a tool to prolong the need for some surgeries.
Acute Conditions
Therapy lasers for acute conditions are especially powerful when it is applied as soon as possible following injury. Bringing pain under control as soon as possible helps the healing process and can also help promote better outcomes.
Chronic Conditions
With chronic conditions, research has determined that therapy lasers can be practiced to aid in dealing with persistent pain and improve circulation to tissues. It is a powerful, non-pharmaceutical solution to lessen pain without medication.
Post-Activity Recovery
LightForce® Therapy Lasers can be seen on the sidelines of many pro, college, and Olympic sports teams. Laser therapy has been proved to be useful at enhancing post-activity recovery times and decreasing delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS).
Clinical Applications

LightForce® Therapy Lasers can effectively be applied to manage the following painful conditions:

  • TMJ

Class IV Laser Therapy

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.

Efficacy

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.

Photobiomodulation

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).
