Laser beam light is focused light that emits photon that move in the same parallel direction at the same wavelength. This is called coherent light. This focused light passes through the skin's dermis and attaches to specialized cell membrane photo receptors. This increases cell membrane permeability causing an enzyme cascade that affects physiological processes with decreased inflammation and improved tissue regeneration of an injured area. ERCHONIA cold lasers were the first to gain FDA approval for the treatment of chronic neck and shoulder pain and carpal tunnel syndrome. Elite athletes have used cold lasers for years to enhance performance and assist with injuries. At Health In Motion Physical Therapy, we have used cold laser treatments the past 6 years with excellent results.
Since the introduction of cold laser therapy in 2001, new scientific and clinical discoveries have led to the development of Near Infrared lasers. Health in Motion incorporated the use of Near Infrared Laser Therapy in 2016 and has already seen amazing results. Working at a cellular level, lasers benefit patients in the following ways:
Decrease in inflammation and repairs tissue
Treats acute & chronic injuries
Great for head/brain injuries and headaches - same day migraine relief!
Helps with Neuropathies (loss of feeling or constant tingling in toes & fingers)
Faster relief of radiating nerve pain
Relief from inflammatory conditions such as Bursitis, Arthritis, & Plantar Fasciitis
Faster healing results overall - great for athletes!
Patients experiencing inflammatory conditions, connective tissue injury/disorder, muscle injury/disorder, joint injury/disorder, or looking for drug-free pain management without surgery can benefit greatly from laser therapy.
