What To Expect From Deep Tissue Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a non-invasive technique to help reduce pain and inflammation. Laser therapy can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs. This pain relief treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery. Laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the condition being treated. Laser therapy treatments must be administered directly to skin, as laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing. You will feel soothing warmth as the therapy is administered. Learn how LiteCure Laser Therapy can help you.

 

Depending on the condition being treated your therapy may be administer through either a contact or non-contact hand piece. The contact hand piece is designed to allow the practitioner to physically manipulate the tissue while administering the treatment, resulting in a laser-massage treatment. This allows for light to penetrate deeper into tissues. Patients generally see results after 3 to 5 treatments. The doctor will develop and recommend a treatment plan that is optimal for your condition.

  • Promotes rapid cell growth. The laser accelerates cellular reproduction and growth.
  • Promotes faster wound healing. It stimulates cell growth in damaged tissues. The reduction in recovery time is an important consideration.
  • Increases metabolic activity, which can help with a variety of conditions, including tendonitis treatment, lower back pain relief, osteoarthritis treatment, and Fibromyalgia treatment.
  • Improves the quality of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns, or following surgery.
  • Reduces swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints.
  • Stimulates lymph and blood circulation to allow the affected tissue to have the best possible circulation.
  • Promotes nerve function. In cases of numbness, the laser helps speed the process of nerve cell reconnection.
  • Promotes the release of the body’s own pain-killing chemicals such as endorphins and enkephalins from the brain, adrenal glands, and other areas, thus facilitating log lasting pain relief, including lower back pain.

I have had a problem with plantar fasciitis for the past ten months. The pain in my foot was severe and it was interfering daily with my work as my job requires me to be on my feet all day. I had tried stretching, physical therapy, icing and Advil—all of which were helping some, but I continued to have problems getting through my day at work. It also made exercising difficult. I am an active person, and this was greatly interfering with my level of activity and making it extremely difficult to get through a day of work without my foot hurting.

I decided to try Deep Tissue Laser Therapy treatments. It took about four treatments before I began to notice a difference—possibly because I waited so long to seek treatment. The laser treatment along with Dr. Sarah performing Myofascial Stripping to break up the scar tissue have been very effective in getting me active again. I am now able to work and return to classes at the gym with little discomfort. I would definitely recommend Horn Family Chiropractic and Deep Tissue Laser Therapy to others as the entire staff is knowledgeable, professional, and courteous.
