Laser light therapy involves using specific light wavelengths (red, near-infrared) intended for therapeutic effects. This is also known as photobiomodulation. Benefits are numerous, including pain reduction, improved healing time, decreased swelling and increased circulation. Laser therapy for pain has been widely used in Europe since the 1970s.
This type of therapy is now being used extensively in the United States, as well, thanks to FDA clearance in 2002. If you’d like to find relief using laser therapy for pain, contact Kimble Chiropractic Center online or call 803-327-6155 today.
This therapy can also help with herpes zoster (shingles), trigeminal neuralgia, fibromyalgia, diabetic neuropathy, deep edema/congestion and burns.
So, how does all of this work? The energy in laser draws oxygen, water and nutrients to damaged areas, thereby boosting circulation. Treatments are painless as they create an optimal healing environment. Inflammation is reduced, swelling goes down and you can find relief from muscle spasms, stiffness and pain. Function is restored. Patients can report feeling mild and soothing warmth and/or tingling at treatment sites. It is possible that patients may be briefly sensitive in areas of pain or inflammation before pain reduction occurs.
Kimble Chiropractic Center uses K-Laser for safe treatment and fast treatment times with tissue repair and pain management. Benefits of this technology include:
Presets help to safely provide more consistent outcomes, while high-powered larger doses result in shorter treatment times.
The infrared laser interacts with the cellular level of tissues, increasing the metabolic activity within the cell itself. Laser light therapy thereby improves nutrient transport across cell membranes.
The goal is to repair damaged tissue by laser bio-stimulation and to grow healthy tissue through the same method – and laser therapy has been proven to do just that. Healing is accelerated as pain, inflammation and scar tissue formation is reduced. This therapy can also produce dramatic results in chronic pain management.
