The technique is called “cold” laser therapy because the low levels of light typically do not heat your bodily tissue. At Weddington Chiropractic Wellness Center, our Class IV Lumix and MR4 Multi Radiance machines are extremely effective methods for stimulating and accelerating the healing process. Using non-invasive painless treatments, these enhanced technology units safely penetrate specific super pulsed frequency of light waves to heal damaged tissue in a matter of minutes.
How It Works
When our cells are damaged, they signal the pain response of our central nervous system. Laser energy excites our cells by transmitting healing wavelengths of light through the affected area up to 6 inches deep depending on tissue density. Once the light reaches the ATP in the cells of the body, they promote the healing process. Laser therapy light can ignite the production of enzymes, stimulate mitochondria, increase vasodilation and lymphatic drainage, and elevate collagen formation substances to prevent the formation of scar tissue. The healing process can occur in all tissue including muscles, ligaments, and even bone, which is why it is important to determine if you are a candidate for cold laser by reviewing contraindications in our consent to treat form here.
How Long Does It Take?
The treatment is less than 15 minutes and depending on the level of injury, results can be seen within 1-6 visits with occasional maintenance follow ups. We suggest at least a six-session package for optimal results. Our laser therapy is available as one of the several wellness plans we offer for your economical convenience.
