In recent years, Laser therapy has become one of the newest, and fastest growing approaches to treat various types of pain. In our office, we use the Aspen Laser which can deliver more energy than other therapy lasers. More power means deeper penetration, faster treatment times, and better ability to treat difficult conditions.
We often use it for the treatment of
- Neck and shoulder pain
- Knee pain
- Sports injuries, such as sprains and strains
- Foot and ankle conditions, including plantar fasciitis
- Arthritic pains
How Does Laser Therapy Work?
The Aspen Laser works by stimulating the cells which help our body to heal. Our laser is specially tuned to specific wavelengths and frequencies to stimulate healing at the cellular level. Laser lightwaves hold their intensity until they are absorbed by a medium (your body). This energy penetrates your skin and underlying structures to accelerate your body’s healing process. When used to treat pain at the source, wavelengths and frequencies of visible red, and near infrared light is safe, non-invasive, and painless. Relief can be found in as little as 5-10 minutes!
What are the Advantages of Laser Therapy?
There are many benefits and advantages to laser therapy! It does not require the use of drugs or surgery, and there are no dangerous side effects or risks. Laser therapy is used to treat the cause of the pain, not the symptoms of pain alone. It can reduce inflammation, muscle tightness, soreness and decrease pain. Laser therapy may also help to improve range of motion and movement, as well as speeding recovery and healing time!
