What Is Laser Therapy?
Type IV high-intensity laser therapy is one of the most advanced pain management services that is currently available. The laser therapy treatment uses photons of laser light that penetrates the skin and moves into the cells. The photon stimulates the mitochondria in the cell to create more adenosine triphosphate (ATP) which accelerates cellular growth in order to improve the tissue repair process. This therapy is a quick and painless process that allows patients to resume their daily activities without any downtime! Many patients have greatly benefited from this treatment at our Orange County chiropractic office. This type of therapy is highly advantageous over other types of treatments like drugs or surgery, because there are no dangerous side effects or risks that are associated with it.
When To Use Laser Therapy
Pain in the body can be caused by a wide range of issues. If you are experiencing prolonged discomfort in almost any area of your body, laser treatments could help to reduce or remove the pain!
Sports injuries do not only apply to athletes. While athletics are known to yield injuries due to the high-intensity and repetitive motions associated with most sports, a sports-related injury can be caused in anyone. If you are working out or exercising regularly, you may experience some pains in your joints or muscles. Instead of turning to medications, you should consider laser therapy to help reduce your pains.
If you have recently sprained a joint, you could benefit from enhanced healing thanks to high-intensity laser treatment. While most sprains will heal naturally over time, they are never fun to deal with. The more intense the sprain, the more pain you are dealing with on a regular basis, and the longer the healing process will take. If your sprain is keeping you from operating at full capacity, consider getting in touch with our Orange County office for a consultation.
Back pain is becoming more and more common, especially due to sedentary lifestyles or job requirements. Whether you have strained your back due to high amounts of physical labor, or you are experiencing back pains from prolonged sitting at a desk, type IV laser treatments could help to improve your healing. When paired with our chiropractic services, this type of treatment is especially beneficial, and can lead to smooth recovery and pain-free living.
Arthritis and Tendonitis
Inflammation in the joints due to arthritis or tendinitis can cause prolonged and daily pain in any number of joints throughout the body. Laser treatments help to stimulate healing on the cellular level which reduces inflammation and increases blood flow to the affected areas.
Temporomandibular joint dysfunction, otherwise known as TMJ, occurs when the muscles and joints in the jaw become inflamed or misaligned. This causes pain throughout the day as you speak or chew. When you use laser treatment, you can enjoy freedom from this pain, and return to a normal routine.
