Deep Tissue Laser Therapy for Pain and Inflammation

One of the fastest growing treatments for pain management in the last decade has been cold laser therapy, not to be confused with surgical lasers which are used to cut and cauterize tissue. Cold lasers actual heal tissue not destroy. Cold laser therapy works by a process called photo-biostimulation. What this means is that light waves emitted by the laser stimulate the chemically damaged cells to produce beneficial enzymes, increase mitochondrial activity, increase lymphatic drainage via macrophages stimulation, and increased vasodilation. More simply put, the laser decreases inflammation and pain, while speeding up recovery and reducing scar tissue production.

For these reasons, Cold Laser Therapy has been a huge hit among chiropractors, physical therapist and athletic trainers. In fact, many professional teams have been utilizing laser therapy to return their star athletes back to the game quicker for years. So why can’t you experience the same quality of treatment!

At Committed to Health Chiropractic Center, Dr. Paul Hyland and Dr. Megan Floarke are highly trained and certified in diagnosis and treatment of an assortment of conditions. Just to mention a few: arthritis, neck and back pain, sciatica, TMJ, shoulder pain from overuse and tendonitis, knee pain, tennis elbow, little league elbow, plantar fasciitis, fibromyalgia, IT band syndrome, sprains, strains and more.

Our office uses a top of the line class IV laser manufactured by LiteCure. Class IV lasers are the strongest laser available for therapeutic treatments. A class IV laser puts out 1,500 times more energy than a class III, thus allowing for deeper tissue penetration, a larger treatment surface area, and faster results.
