Laser Therapy Treatment
Non-invasive laser therapy is an excellent tool used to solve many painful issues. It uses light to quicken the body's natural healing process. Light has a biological effect on molecules called chromophores when it penetrates tissue. Photobiomodulation occurs, which causes an increase in cell energy production. This increases circulation, which reduces inflammation and increases the rate of healing. At Burleson Chiropractic Center in Burleson, we use a variety of tools and techniques to help our patients recover.
What Does Laser Therapy Treat?
Laser therapy is used to treat pain and inflammation caused by:
- Deep edema
- Ligament sprains
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Soft tissue trauma
- Muscle strains
- Nerve regeneration
- Post-surgical healing
- Spine related pain
- Neck pain
The Procedure for Laser Therapy Treatment
When a patient is receiving laser therapy, the chiropractor shines a red beam on the affected area. You will feel some warmth which is a result of the energy being applied to the area. There is no burning or pain associated with this form of treatment.
Why Choose Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is a non-invasive form of treatment. Unlike surgical methods, laser therapy is a great alternative that leaves no traces of scar tissue. Laser therapy also decreases nerve sensitivity by reducing a pain chemical called bradykinin. It helps in the release of endorphins which are the body's natural pain relievers. It also blocks pain in some nerve fibers. Neck and back pain usually responds quickly to laser therapy.
Laser therapy reduces inflammation by increasing the energy stored in the cells. White blood cells are responsible for healing and become stimulated by the therapy. Beneficial antioxidants such as superoxide dismutase are also produced more rapidly.
Additional Reasons to Consider Laser Therapy:
- No medication is involved
- Enhances movement and increases the flexibility of your joints
- Muscle tightness and spasms are significantly reduced
- Improved recovery time: Laser therapy causes accelerated tissue repair and cellular growth. This is caused by photons generated by the laser, which penetrate the tissue cells to trigger faster repair. Vascular activity is also increased to close the wounds quickly.
- Cost friendly
- Fast and efficient
