Contact our team at California Chiropractic today if you live in or around Los Angeles, Simi Valley, or Chatsworth.
What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy involves using a laser that makes contact with the skin and sends red or near-infrared wavelengths of light into the deep muscle tissues. These photons of light create a warm, soothing sensation in the muscles, which work immediately to provide relief. On a cellular level, laser therapy increases the protein that allows your muscles to heal known as ATP. This form of therapy promotes blood flow and nitric oxide to support the healing process.
Laser therapy works by interacting with the Cytochrome C complex within your body's mitochondria cells. Laser therapy has become more powerful throughout the years. Class IV laser therapy is not only one of the most powerful treatment methods on the market, it is also a safe and FDA-cleared treatment option.
How Can Our Chiropractor Help?
At California Chiropractic, our chiropractor will conduct a full physical exam along with imaging tests to determine if laser therapy is the right treatment option for you. Laser therapy can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including:
- Chronic pain by promoting circulation and blood flow to the damaged tissues
- Acute pain caused by muscle sprains, strains, and tears
- Post-workout pain to help athletes recover faster from muscle soreness and fatigue
- Achilles tendonitis
- Knee pain
- Back pain
- Sore upper back muscles
What to Expect From Laser Therapy
Laser therapy is not to be confused with shockwave therapy, which can be uncomfortable for some patients. On the contrary, Class IV laser therapy is a soothing and relaxing experience, which involves warming up the muscles and reducing inflammation. This form of therapy is effective at reducing swelling while helping to promote healing, regeneration, and improving muscle mobility.
