What is Deep Tissue Laser Therapy?

Deep tissue laser therapy is a method that helps relieve pain and inflammation caused by musculoskeletal injuries without the need for any invasive procedures. Non-surgical laser therapy is a non-pharmacological treatment that targets the origin of pain using light that has high energy output. This light energy speeds up the natural healing process within the body on a cellular level (called photo-bio stimulation).

Deep tissue laser therapy seeks out and treats the underlying causes of pain and discomfort, in contrast to pharmaceutical therapies that only cover up the sensation of pain or cure the symptoms of the disease. As a result, deep tissue laser therapy is successful, and the effects of this therapy persist for a considerable amount of time. Athletic trainers for teams competing in the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, FIFA, and Olympics have all begun using laser treatment as a primary method for managing pain in their patients.

What Conditions Can Deep Tissue Therapy Help With?

  • Ligament strains

  • Arthritis

What Do You Need to Know About Deep Tissue Laser Therapy?

It Has No Adverse Side Effects and Helps Decrease Inflammation and Discomfort.

Photobiomodulation (PBM) is the name of the procedure that is utilized in laser treatment. Photons go through the tissue and affect the cytochrome c complex that resides within the mitochondria. This contact sets off a chain reaction of biological processes, which ultimately results in a rise in the rate of cellular metabolism and a decline in pain and inflammation. Laser treatment, in contrast to medicine, has been shown to alleviate pain without the accompanying unpleasant side effects.

Both Acute and Chronic Diseases Can Be Treated 

When used to treat acute disorders, non-surgical laser therapy is most effective when carried out as quickly as possible after the initial damage (assuming there is no active hemorrhage). It will be to everyone’s advantage if the inflammation can be brought under control as quickly as possible so that the healing process can get underway. Laser treatment is beneficial in cases of acute injuries since it helps the body return to normal function more quickly.

It Can Actually Feel Great

A frequently asked question is, “What does it feel like?” Depending on the laser, the treatment may provide very little to no feeling or produce a mild, calming warmth instead. A significant number of those undergoing deep tissue laser therapy for back pain say they enjoyed the experience.

It Doesn’t Take Long

Treatments are swift when using lasers, taking anywhere from five to ten minutes on average, depending on the severity, size, and depth of the problem. Because high-power lasers can produce a significant quantity of energy in a very short period of time, therapeutic doses can be attained in a relatively short period of time.

About Laser Therapy: Laser therapy is a medical treatment that uses focused light to stimulate a process with in the cell called photobiomodulation (PBM). During PBM, the light interaction triggers a biological cascade of events that leads to an increase in cellular metabolism and a decrease in both pain and inflammation. This treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to have an alternative to drug and surgery for pain relief.

He got me in on a Saturday, last minute, and didn’t charge anything extra. It was the most comprehensive adjustment I’ve ever had. He was courteous, educated, and professional. He spent the time to make sure I left feeling better. I can’t recommend him enough.

Dr. Stock was the first chiropractor I had been to ever. I had never really trusted chiropractors before, having heard mixed reviews from friends and family. However, Dr. Stock is amazing. He truly cares about his patients. He is also very accommodating if there is a need same day. I highly recommended him to anyone looking for a chiropractor, whether you haven’t seen one before at all or your looking to switch.
