What IS Deep Tissue or Cold Laser Therapy?
Deep Tissue Laser Therapy, also known as Low Level Laser Therapy, or Cold Laser has been used for over 40 years to treat pain and inflammation. In 2002 it was finally approved in the United States as a treatment for pain and inflammation. It's actually called 'Photobiomodulation' and it has been proven to help many people recover from the pain and inflammation of their injuries. The results are simply amazing.
What does it do:
- Anti-inflammation: Cold Laser therapy (LLLT) has an anti-edemic effect (anti swelling) as it causes vasodilation, but also because it activates the lymphatic drainage system (drains swollen areas).
- Anti-Pain (Analgesic): Cold Laser therapy (LLLT) has a high beneficial effect on nerve cells which block pain transmitted by these cells to the brain and which decreases nerve sensitivity. also, due to less inflammation, there is less edema and less pain.
- Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth: Photons of light from lasers penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproductiona dn growth. the laser light increases the energy available to the cell so that the cell can take on nutrients faster and get rid of waste products.
- Improved Vascular Activity: Laser light will significantly increase the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue, speeding up the healing process, closes wounds faster and reduces scar tissue.
- Increased Metabolic Activity: Laser therapy creates higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells, leading to higher metabolic activity.
- Trigger Points and Acupuncture Points: Laser therapy stimulates muscle trigger points and acupuncture points on a non-invasive basis providing musculoskeletal pain relief.
- Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation: Laser therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burnes, or surgery.
- Improved Nerve Function: Slow recovery of nerve functions in damaaged tissue can result in numbness and impaired limbs. Laser light will speed up the process of axonal regeneration, nerve cell reconnection, and increase the amplitude of action potentials to optimize muscle action.
It's actually easier to SHOW you what Deep Tissue Laser Therapy is. It's simply not an easy explanation.
What Conditions Can Deep Tissue Laser Therapy Help?
Laser therapy has been used successfuly on patients with frozen shoulder, post surgical pain and inflammation, knee pain, foot pain, neuropathy due to a lumbar issue, diabetic peripheral neuropathy, low back pain, sciatica, neck/disc pain, arthritic hand pain, etc. It is very useful in treating arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, and the pain and inflammation associated with these conditions.
It is simply amazing what this class IV laser can accomplish for patients. Check out what actual patient have to say here. Come in and try it for yourself!
