Laser Therapy Accelerates Pain Relief and Healing

So what is laser therapy and how can it help me?  Is likely a question you are asking.

Laser Therapy, also known as Low Level Laser Therapy and Cold Laser Therapy, is a treatment using specific wavelengths of light to treat your body.

It is effective at treating or helping in acute and chronic conditions, pain, inflammation and swelling and spasm.

One of the more interesting uses is its benefits and effectiveness in increasing cellular function, although it gets more attention from being highly effective with pain, swelling and spasm.

This sounds great, but how does all this happen?

 In a simple explanation of this, the energy from the laser light interacts with the cells in your body to produce what is known as biophotostimulation. There are two basic parts to this. The first is the light stimulates the powerhouse of your cells, the mitochondria, helping the cell to”wake up” and get pumping and moving, Next is with the light promoting increased cellular circulation. The net effect, or benefit, with this is that with increased cellular energy and circulation, it promotes and has the benefits of :

  • Healing of the tissue from 30 to 70% faster
  • Healthier tissue, increasing cell reproduction and growth
  • Reduces swelling and inflammation
  • Reduces pain
  • Stimulates collagen for tissue repair and elastin for skin health

Laser therapy has proven to be effective in treating:

  • Degeneration in joints and other tissues
  •  Nerve degeneration, helping improve nerve function
  • Wound repair and reducing scar tissue formation
  • restoring blood flow. This method of treatment is best known as Cold Laser Therapy (CLT) or Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT). It is primarily used to help treat patients suffering with pain, swelling, spasms and limited mobility.

We have used Laser Therapy very successfully with headaches, neck pain, back pain, muscle pain and spasm, rotator cuff injuries, shoulder pain, elbow pain, wrist and hand pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, degenerative discs, herniated discs, bulging discs, arthritis, hip degeneration, hip pain, knee pain, knee degeneration, meniscus problems, foot and ankle pain. It is also in integral part of our brain based treatment in our work with concussions, mild traumatic brain injuries, early Alzheimer’s, early dementia, and peripheral neuropathy in the hands and feet.

How Does It Work?

To apply Laser Therapy, we use a handheld device about the size of a medium flashlight, to treat the injured area. The treatment can last from just a few seconds to several minutes, depending on the severity of the injury. During the treatment, light photons are emitted from the cold laser and sent into the skin. The laser device may be placed just above the skin or applied directly to the skin with light to firm pressure and may be held in one place of moved around during treatment.

“When I came to Dr. Olsen, I was a mess! I was taking Motrin 2-3 times a day EVERY day! Now, I do not have to take any medications AND I sleep better too!" - Frances C. / Laguna Hills, CA “For the past 4 years, I have had chronic fatigue, Neuropathy, painful lymph nodes, all of which a cause for could not be determined by my Kaiser doctors. I had run out of hope of ever feeling like myself again- then I was introduced to Dr. Olsen, who immediately determined where my body and organs needed support and assistance." Kathleen B./ Riverside, CA
