While surgery is sometimes the only choice for a patient, most people would like to avoid it if possible. Laser therapy is an exciting new technology that provides a superior alternative to surgery in many cases. It can be used to reduce pain and inflammation, and stimulate the healing of muscle, ligament, and even bone tissue.
The procedure employs class IV infrared laser light to stimulate the mitochondria in injured cells. The mitochondria absorb photons from the laser and use this energy to produce cytochrome oxidase enzyme, which ultimately leads to improved cell metabolism and tissue regeneration. This is a non-invasive strategy that does not involve the risk or extended healing periods that can accompany traditional surgery.
Class IV laser treatments are effective against a wide variety of injuries, including acute issues such as sprains and strains, trauma, chronic pain such as arthritis, or pain arising from repetitive use of the same joints and muscle groups. Consider opting for laser therapy if you suffer from joint pain including lower back pain, knee pain, neck pain, or any other joint and muscle ailment. Again, if you suffer from any of the above, make an appointment with Health Advantage Physical Medicine and see what class IV laser therapy can do for you! We can help you.
