Deep Tissue Laser Therapy

Imagine the surprise when researchers learned that certain light frequencies could actually reduce inflammation and enhance the healing process of injured and damaged tissue cells!

Red bursts of light

Related to the lasers used in scanners, this low level light energy can have positive effects on the body.

When prospective patients learn that we use laser therapy in our practice, they have visions of a powerful, steel-cutting beam of light. The laser we use has only a tiny fraction of that power. Instead, its value comes from the frequency of the light it emits, not its intensity.

Specific Wavelengths

Instead of the full spectrum of light that comes from the sun, our LiteCURE Deep Tissue Laser produces light in a narrow frequency. Frequencies in the red portion of the rainbow are shown to assist the healing of soft tissues. Apparently, the cells in our bodies have receptors that are sensitive to light.

How Does It Work?

How can certain frequencies of light speed up or slow down biological processes? Many theories have been suggested, but from practical application with real people, we know it works for:

  • Wound healing
  • Inflammation reduction
  • Pain management
  • Cell regeneration
  • Scar tissue reduction

While scientists continue to study and research the mechanism by which low level laser works and publish their findings in the scientific literature, our patients are just delighted that it works!
