Laser Therapy Chiropractic
What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy makes use of a certain frequency of light waves, red and near infrared light, in order to create a therapeutic effect on the body. There have been numerous studies published documenting the beneficial effectiveness of these wavelength for improving healing time, reduction of pain, reduced swelling and increased circulation.
What is Class IV Laser Therapy?
Recent technological advances in Laser Therapy have brought about the Class IV level of Laser Therapy which has been shown to travel deep into the body, up to 6 to 8 inches. This depth of light penetration allows the light photons to reach deep seated pain within the body.
This deep penetrates of light into the body stimulates damaged cells to start producing ATP. ATP is the “fuel” or energy source that all cells need to function and repair. Interestingly, laser therapy has no effect on healthy cells.
The laser therapy provides the damaged cells in the body with much needed energy for functioning properly again and repair of the damage begins to take place. Without such repair processes, cells remain damaged and the end result is people who have injuries continue to suffer with pain that just doesn't go away.
Laser therapy can accelerates the healing of injured areas, decreases inflammation, and eliminates pain allowing patients to quickly return to normal activities.
