Laser Therapy

Natural Pain Relief and Natural Healing

As explained in this video, laser therapy is a fast-acting treatment for pain and

it promotes natural healing.

Laser therapy is non-invasive, drug-free, non-toxic, and takes just 5 to 10 minutes per session. Patients report an immediate warming sensation, followed by a reduction in pain.

Chronic pain, recent injuries, recent surgeries... the list of issues that can be treated with laser therapy is extensive. Read on for more info or contact us! This is truly an incredible healing therapy.

Daravida uses a Class IV Laser, which means faster, more effective treatment sessions compared to a "cold laser" unit.
New Chiropractic Patients receive one complimentary laser therapy session
and laser therapy treatment plans are available for returning patients.

A Brief History of Laser Therapy

The
Aspen class IV
Unit

Laser therapy works because laser radiation (light) has a single, focused wavelength and more focused waves, meaning that the light doesn't spread out as it would from a lightbulb.

Laser light wavelength has been heavily researched to achieve maximum absorption by,

and thus maximum therapeutic effect on,

your injured cells, a process called photobiomodulation therapy. 

It was the work of Albert Einstein that laid the foundation for the invention of lasers. The word "laser" is actually an acronym for "light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation."

In 1967, physician Endre Mester, using a low-level laser to treat tumors in lab rats, discovered better wound healing and hair growth in his subjects.

The Nuts and Bolts of Photobiomodulation

When you're injured, for example when you sprain your ankle, the cells within that tissue begin to undergo negative changes, including atrophy.

They need help.

Laser therapy on your sprained ankle is like charging the tiny batteries, called mitochondria, inside each of those injured cells.

Part of what stimulates the mitochondria to begin charging are molecule parts called chromophores.

One chromophore in particular, called cytochrome c oxidase (CCO), is activated by laser light. This was identified by biophysicist Dr. Tiina Karu. When CCO is activated, a cascade of reactions within the mitochondria begins, resulting in a host of benefits for each and every cell contacted by the light.

The charged up batteries in your cells then begin producing a compound called adenosine triphosphate (ATP) which is the main source of energy for the majority of cell functions.

Your freshly charged and fueled cells then begin performing their normal duties. Your ankle starts healing, swelling is reduced, circulation is improved, and inflammation is reduced.
