The healthcare professionals at Got Your Back Total Health help patients with several types of pain. The facility offers laser therapy for residents in many communities within close proximity to both Spring Valley, Maryland and Washington, D.C.
Lasers are widely used in cosmetic medicine to rejuvenate the skin, but their medical uses extend far beyond aesthetic procedures. Chiropractors are able to use lasers to help relieve pain. Laser therapy uses a light-emitting device to stimulate different areas of the body so that they naturally heal themselves. Laser therapy is sometimes combined with other types of pain treatment, such as electric stimulation, to provide a multidimensional pain treatment plan. Deep Tissue Laser Therapy has been researched for over 30 years and provides superior depth penetration and results.
Numerous alternative health and medical clinics have begun including light therapies into their treatment methods. Cold laser therapy, or low level laser therapy, is one of the most popular light therapies currently. Cells begin to die when tissue is damage and scar tissue forms, which can slow or even hinder the healing process. Cold laser therapy is engineered to stimulate the damage cells and break up the formed scar tissue by producing the essential wavelengths of light necessary to do so.
The beneficial effects of laser light on tissue were first recognized almost forty years ago. Since then, there have been thousands of studies documenting the positive effects laser light has on different types of cells, tissue, and disorders.
One of the major advantages of cold laser therapy units is the ability to penetrate deep into joints and tissues while also being able to treat conditions close to the surface of the skin. Oftentimes, little or no sensation is felt during the treatment process. Regardless of how deep the light waves penetrate, damaged cell absorbs the energy that aids in reparation. The body is able to decrease the painful sensation, reduce swelling, and accelerate the time required to heal as these cells are repaired.
Laser therapy is able to alleviate many kinds of pain, and it can be used on many parts of the body. It can help alleviate neck and back pain, arthritis-induced pain, shoulder pain, and other joint and muscle pain. It can be used on many different joints and muscles.
Treatment protocols are unique to each patient and condition, so treatments will vary in time, complexity and cost. Some treatment plans may include multiple joints being treated during one laser treatment session. Treatments can take from 5 - 20 minutes, and when appropriate laser therapy can be used as a complementary adjunct to other treatment plans.
Our Class IV LiteCure LightForce laser therapy system sends photons, or packets of light energy, deep into tissue without damaging it. These photons are absorbed within the mitochondria of the cells and induce a biochemical change called “photobiomodulation” which then inspires production of ATP in the cell. ATP is the fuel, or energy, cells need for repair and rejuvenation. Impaired or injured cells do not make this fuel at an optimal rate, and thus, increased ATP production leads to healthier cells, healthier tissue, and healthier humans!
Class IV Deep Tissue Laser Therapy has a host of benefits which include:
