There is a relatively new medical treatment called Deep Tissue Laser Therapy and it has had very successful results of decreased pain, weakness and numbness in patients who are affected by chronic, severe pain, radiculopathy (numbness, tingling and pain that radiates in the hands, arms, f
eet, or legs).
This Deep Tissue Laser is not like the typical medical laser that you would think of. Most of the lasers that you will hear about are called hot lasers. They are used for procedures that involve removing or cutting tissues from the body. The word “Deep Tissue” in Deep Tissue Laser means that there is no heat involved to cut or hurt the tissue however it gently stimulates the nerve cells to repair the damage. To understand it better think of how plants use UV sunlight to function, repair and make new cells. A Deep Tissue Laser is kind of like the UV sunlight for plants.
Studies have shown that the Deep Tissue Laser decreased nerve inflammation as well as nerve pain and increased muscle strength while the pain decreased. The human nerve cell will respond to a visible wavelength of light that is in the red visible spectrum at 630 nm and it has been researched and recorded as well as approved by the FDA to lower nerve pain.
We will use two different types of Deep Tissue lasers that have been created by the leaders in Deep Tissue laser research and development to attain the most successful reduction of pain in the shortest amount of time.
The majority of patients that suffer with herniated, degenerated or bulging discs that cause back, neck, arm or leg pain as well as numbness also suffer from nerve irritation or nerve damage which will leave the muscles weak. While decompression alone may not return a nerve to better function, Deep Tissue Laser does have a better chance for the patient to make a full and complete recovery.
Cold Laser Therapy –
We have all the laser classes of cold lasers (Class IIIA, IIIB, IV). Each of these lasers has different applications and different wavelengths. We can choose the best laser to match the presenting problems. The laser has been used for over 30 years clinically. Much more in Europe the in the US. There are over 2,000 scientific papers published about the lasers. There have been no documented side effects. The laser helps in two main areas of application.
1. Healing takes place some report a 75-80% speed in healing damaged tissues.
2. Pain modulation and decrease.
This has been the biggest application for our offices. The pain reduction by patients is about instant and has long lasting benefits. Laser is able to do this by increasing the cellular energy called ATP and also increases the circulation to the tissues.
How It Works-
The deep tissue laser works by flooding your painful body parts, tissues, ligaments, muscles, joints and cartilage and spinal discs with photons. Deep tissue laser also increases the circulation to the painful area and energizes the damaged cells. What this procedure does is cause a cascade of healing responses in your body, lower inflammation and reduces or even eliminates your pain quickly. The treatments only take a few minutes each and the therapeutic effect will continue to relieve and heal your body long after you leave the office.
No pain will be felt during the treatments only the feeling of a gentle, deep warmth as your body’s cells respond to the light. There have been no known side effects and it is a non-invasive and safe treatment with results that are long lasting.
We can now offer you a non-surgical option that truly has the power to drastically reduce or even eliminate your pain, because everyone has the goal of having non drug, fast pain relief. Depending on your condition and the severity of the pain involved it should take ten to twenty brief treatments with this powerful laser to change your life forever and get you sleeping, walking, using your hands, bending, sitting, twisting, standing and moving again.
