Our practice is among the first in the area to invest in a Deep Tissue Therapy Laser from LiteCure Medical.
Drug free, pain relief is the goal for individuals suffering from acute or chronic pain. Now we can offer you a non-surgical option that truly has the power to eliminate or significantly reduce your pain. Five to ten brief treatments with this powerful laser is all it takes to realize life changing results. The Deep Tissue Therapy Lasers work by flooding the tissue with photons, energizing the damaged cells and and increasing circulation to the painful area. This produces a cascade of healing responses in your body, reducing inflammation, thereby reducing or even eliminating your pain. Treatments take just a few minutes, however the therapeutic effect continues to soothe and heal long after you leave the office.
Laser therapy is the non-invasive use of laser energy to generate a photochemical response in damaged or dysfunctional tissue. Laser therapy can alleviate pain, reduce inflammation and accelerate recovery from a wide range of acute and chronic clinical conditions. As rehabilitation specialists know, the main goal of treatment for many when treating painful, debilitating conditions is to facilitate improved function and mobility. Laser therapy is a drug-free, surgery-free technique to help make that goal a reality.
Cleared by the FDA in 2003, Class IV Laser laser therapy has become standard of care for many musculoskeletal injuries. Many clinicians are confidently incorporating laser therapy programs into their practices due to the growing body of literature supporting the efficacy of laser therapy as a modality to reduce inflammation and accelerate recovery. Laser therapy technology has been recently endorsed by professional organizations such as the APTA, WHO and IASP.
Decades of research, clinical trials, and laboratory testing indicate the following beneficial effects of laser therapy:
Anti-inflammation: laser therapy reduces inflammation with vasodialation, activation of the lymphatic drainage system, and recuction of pro-inflammatory mediators. As a result, inflammation and erythema are reduced.
Analgesic effect: laser therapy of diseased and damaged tissue produces a suppression of nociceptors, an increase of stimulation threshold, and an increased release of tissue endorphins. The result is a decreased patient perception of pain.
Accelerated tissue repair and cell growth: Photons of light from lasers penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. Laser light increases the energy available to the cell so that they can take on nutrients and get rid of waste products more quickly.
Improved vascular activity: Laser light significantly increases the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissues. This speeds the healing process, resulting in more rapid wound clousure.
Increased metabolic activity: the energy from photons of the laser light is captured by chemicals complexes within cells resulting in activation of enzyme systems and increased energy delivered into cellular metabolic processes.
Trigger points and Acupncture points: laser therapy stimulates muscle trigger and acupuncture points without mechanical invasion to provide musculoskeletal pain relief.
Reduced fibrous tissue formation: laser therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue.
Improved nerve function: Slow recovery of nerve functions in damaged tissue results in numbness and imaired limbs. Laser therapy accelerates nerve cell regeneration.
Immunoregulation: therapy laser photons have an effect on immune systems status through stimulation of immunoglobins and lympocytes. Laser therapy energy is absorbed by chromophores (molecular enzymes) that react to laser light. The enzyme flavomono-nucleotide is activated and starts the production of ATP, which is the major carrier of cellular energy and the energy source for all chemical reactions in the cells.
Faster wound healing: stimulates fibroblasts development. Fibroblasts produce collagen, which is predominant in wound healing in damaged tissue. Collagen is the essental protein required to replace old tissue or to repair tissue injuries. As a result, Lasr therapy is effective on open wounds and burns.
