Laser therapy works by a process called photobiomodulation (a big science-y word meaning that light from the laser works to alter the biology of the organism). When the photons from the laser enter the tissue, they stimulate cellular metabolism, which speeds the healing process. Laser helps the cells to produce more energy and produce other compounds that decrease inflammation and increase blood flow, thereby reducing pain and inflammation, and shortening healing time.
The Laser utilized at Comprehensive Natural Healthcare is a LiteForce Class IV Laser, which is designed to deliver photons of light deep into the tissue to optimize healing effects. It has been used extensively in professional sports and consistently returns players to the game faster than those who are not receiving laser therapy.
At Comprehensive Natural Healthcare, we utilize the laser during office visits as needed, and also offer laser treatment packages. To optimize healing, a few treatments in a short period of time is most advantageous. Class IV Laser Therapy is helpful in healing the following conditions:
- Muscle recovery
- Joint pain/stiffness
- Acute back & neck injuries
- Dermatological conditions
- Wound healing
