Laser Therapy at CarolinaClinic
High Dosage Laser Therapy offers a powerful new solution for numerous painful conditions previously refractive to traditional medical care. Laser Therapy is a highly effective alternative to traditional therapies such as cortisone injections and many times even surgery for a wide range of problems.
How Does Laser Therapy Work?
All light is composed of photons. Photons are small packets of light energy—in the form of waves. Photon energy is able to more effectively penetrate the skin and underlying structures, therefore accelerating the healing process.
Laser energy is well-ordered photons, single-color light energy. When produced as a narrow, bright beam. Laser light holds its intensity until it is absorbed by the body. Laser light, tuned to specific wavelengths and frequencies, stimulates metabolic processes at the cellular level.
Studies have shown that when tissue cultures are irradiated by Lasers, enzymes within cells absorb energy from laser light. Visible (red) light and Near Infrared (NIR) are absorbed within the mitochondria and the cell membrane. This leads to an increase in cellular health and energy. When applied as treatment, Lasers have been shown to reduce pain and inflammation as well as stimulate nerve regeneration, muscle relaxation and immune system response.
Lasers have no effect on normal tissues, as photons of light are only absorbed and utilized by the cells that need them.
Benefits of a Class IV Laser:
- Increased cellular energy levels
- Pain relief
- Accelerated cellular healing
