One of the many non-invasive methods of pain relief that are offered at Apex Integrated Medical, which can help eliminate discomfort without any recovery time. At APEX Integrated Medical of Marietta, Low-Level Laser Therapy is one of the great treatments that we use to alleviate pain and stimulate healing in our patients. Many people find that they experience immediate results after a short laser therapy session.
How It Works
Using infrared lasers with a controlled and adjustable power output of over 500 milliwatts, cold (or class IV) laser therapy penetrates the affected tissues, such as muscles, ligaments, and bones.
When the laser penetrates the tissue, this causes a chain of events that lead to the production of adenosine triphosphate, which the cells use for energy. This photochemical reaction results in an increase in the cellular metabolism rate which expedites cell repair and the stimulation of several systems: the immune, lymphatic and vascular.
This stimulation to the cells enhances healing, improve nerve function, increase vascular activity, reduce pain and reduce inflammation. The entire process is relatively quick, taking only 5-25 minutes per session.
Low-Level Laser Therapy has proven to be effective for many conditions including:
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Disc Herniations or Bulges
- Spinal Stenosis
- Peripheral Neuropathy
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
