Laser Pain Relief Treatment

K LASER - New York Yankees - Steve Donohue from K-LaserUSA on Vimeo

We use a very strong Class IV K Laser. The stronger laser beams are able to penetrate deeper into the body, reaching the bone, ligaments, joint surfaces, and other tissues to create various affects on those tissues.

Laser therapy aims to bio stimulate injured and dysfunctional tissues. Clinical studies of Class IV Laser (class 4) technology have shown the following beneficial effects of light therapy on tissues and cells.

Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth
  • Photons of light from lasers penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth.
  • Therapeutic lasers increased the energy available to the cell so that the cell can take on nutrients faster, and to get rid of waste products
  • As a result of exposure to laser energy, the regenerative cells of tendons, bone, ligaments, and muscles repair disruption faster.
Faster Wound Healing
  • vLaser light stimulates fibroblast development (fibroblast are the building blocks of collagen, which is predominant in wound healing) in damaged tissue
  • Collagen is the essential protein required to replace old tissue or to repair injuries to body tissues.
  • As a result, laser therapy is effective on open wounds. Burns are repaired faster.
Reduces Fibrous Tissue Formation
  • Low Level Laser Therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns or surgery.
Anti-Inflammation
  • Laser light therapy has an anti-edema effect as it causes vasodilatation, but also because it activates the lymphatic drainage system (drains swollen areas). As a result, there is a reduction in swelling caused by bruising or inflammation.
Anti-Pain (Analgesic)
  • Laser therapy has a high beneficial effect on nerve cells which blocks pain transmitted by these cells to the brain and which decreases nerve sensitivity. Also, due to less inflammation, there is less edema and less pain. Another pain blocking mechanism involves the production of high levels of pain killing chemicals such as endorphins and enkephalins from the brain and adrenal gland.
Improved Vascular Activity
  • Slow recovery of nerve functions in damaged tissue can result in numbness and impaired limbs.
Improved Vascular Activity
  • Laser light will significantly increase the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue that speeds up the healing process, close his wounds quickly and reduces scar tissue.
  • Additional benefits include acceleration on angiogenesis (new blood vessel formation), which causes temporary vasodilatation, and increase in the diameter of blood vessels.
Increased Metabolic Activity
  • Laser therapy creates higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells.
Improved Nerve Function
  • Low Level Laser Therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns or surgery.
Immunoregulation
  • Laser light has a direct effect on immunity status by stimulation of immunoglobulin and lymphocytes.
Trigger Point and Acupuncture Point Stimulation
  • Laser therapy stimulates muscle trigger points and acupuncture points on a noninvasive basis providing musculoskeletal pain relief.
