LASER THERAPY FOR PAIN RELIEF
Why is Laser Different?
Laser therapy is a breakthrough medical therapeutic device with unparalleled applications and treatment outcomes. The Laser works by converting light into biochemical energy, resulting in normal cell function, which causes symptoms of pain to disappear.
The primary biological action of the laser results from stimulation of cellular transport mechanisms in the mitochondria, cell membranes, and epithelial tissues. This action causes the release of vasodilating chemicals, the stimulation of DNA and RNA (Building blocks) synthesis, an increase in enzyme production, an increase of superoxide dismutase activity, normalization of tissue pH, and increased ATP production.
The increase of vasodilatation (blood supply) and improved microcirculation will increase the supply of cellular nutrition promoting tissue repair and remodeling (which means you heal faster). Significant reduction in edema (swelling) is also noted.
The specialized laser technology is effective in treating heel pain caused by plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, arthritis, joint pain, edema, bursitis, neuropathy, and non-healing wounds. Recovery from sports injuries including sprains, strains, and muscle tears can be greatly expedited. The effects of laser therapy are cumulative; therefore, a series of treatments are prescribed depending on the condition type and severity.
The average treatment plan ranges from three to nine sessions. Chronic conditions can be controlled with ongoing, regular treatments. Acute conditions usually subside quickly with results often noticed after the first treatment. Each treatment is painless and takes approximately 10 minutes. Successive treatments are scheduled at least 24 hours apart. There are no special preparations required.
