Laser therapy is also known as low level laser therapy (LLLT), soft laser therapy, or cold laser treatment uses highly focused light at specific frequencies to stimulate healing, reduce inflammation, and decrease pain. LLLT transfers the energy from both visible and infra-red photons into the mitochondria of your cells which then increase cellular energy production to speed healing of the tissues; not unlike plants using the sun to grow. More cellular energy increases microcirculation through damaged tissues allowing greater oxygen perfusion and waste product removal. Besides the healing effects, laser application can also directly lessen pain levels through complex neuro-endocrine functions.
The Vectra Genisys laser we use at First Step Chiropractic applies 3 different light frequencies using 13 individual emitters to maximize the tissue effects. Applications generally take about a minute and 3-6 applications are typically sufficient to fully treat an area of the body. Treatment is completely painless, and we often see positive changes after the very first session.
LLLT therapy can be used for both recent injuries and chronic pain conditions. These are just some of the advantages laser therapy offers compared to medication and more invasive procedures:
Here are just some of the conditions that respond well to cold laser therapy:
