What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is a form of chiropractic treatment where our experts stimulate certain areas of the body with low-intensity light energy (a laser) to speed up a patient’s body’s natural healing process.
Laser therapy utilizes both red and infrared light. When keyed to specific wavelengths using a specific intensity, it can be used to speed the regeneration of the body’s natural healing process.
Therapeutic lasers provide non-invasive chiropractic treatment for musculoskeletal pain. The light energy from the laser helps in reducing the pain and swelling of body joints, repairing injured skin, rehabilitation of muscle, ligaments, tendons, and nerves, and helps in repairing and reducing cartilage and bone pains.
How does it work?
Laser therapy has been used for 30 years to speed up the body's natural healing processes, in addition to accelerating the cellular regeneration process. Here at Evergreen Rehab and Wellness, we utilize two laser therapy techniques.
Our first technique uses low-intensity lightwaves for medical treatment and rehabilitation. The second treatment technique uses high-intensity light waves used for tissue removal. The laser is delivered via a selection of different lasers, or penetrating-focused lasers used to reach more deeply injured tissue.
Laser therapy using different wavelengths and duration allows our Chiropractors to both penetrate and deliver the lightwave energy to the body’s soft tissue cells directly. The benefits of laser therapy include:
- Repairing of injured skin
- Rehabilitation of muscle, ligaments, tendons, and nerves
- Helps to repair and reduce cartilage and bone pains
- Reduction of pain and swelling in the body joints
Roughly 10 percent of patients who receive this treatment will notice very quick improvement of pain reduction and swelling in the affected areas. Since 1997, laser therapy has helped thousands of people lead healthy lives. For those worried about the pain level involved in this treatment, do not worry. Laser therapy is not painful and is described as a warm feeling on the skin.
