We have a Class IV Lightforce Laser. Laser therapy is a medical treatment that uses focused light to stimulate a process in the body called Photobiomodulation.
During PBM, photons enter the tissue and interact with a certain complex (Cytochrome C, for anyone wanting to really nerd out). This interaction triggers a cascade of events that lead to an increase in cellular metabolism, and ultimately decreases pain and accelerates the healing process. It decreases inflammation, increases range of motion, and significantly reduces the amount of pain in the treatment area, after as little as one treatment!
Laser therapy is used to treat both acute and chronic conditions, as well as aid in post-activity recovery. Did you know that many of the NFL teams now have Class IV lasers in their athletic training rooms for injuries and recovery?!
Laser therapy is great for many musculoskeletal conditions, some of which include (but not limited to):
⁃ neck and back pain
⁃ Disc herniations
⁃ Muscle sprain/strains
⁃ TMJ pain
⁃ Plantar Fasciitis
⁃ Tennis/Golfer’s Elbow
⁃ Shoulder pain
⁃ DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness)
