If you have nagging pain that is putting a damper on your life, therapeutic laser therapy just might be the answer. This cutting edge treatment can even rid you of pain that has been chronic for years. The laser we use the most is the M6 Class IV, which has the ability to treat large areas simultaneously.
Focusing solely on the area where you feel pain is usually not enough. That’s because the actual cause of the pain may have originated in another area entirely. This is called non-painful dysfunction, while the site of the pain is experiencing painful dysfunction. At Natural Foundations, we look for the cause of your pain and use the M6 laser to treat the areas of both painful and non-painful dysfunction.
How does the laser work?
Therapeutic laser therapy is also called photobiomodulation. The laser device provides specific wavelengths of red and near-infrared light, which relieve pain, reduce muscle stiffness and spasms, improve circulation, decrease swelling, prevent the formation of scar tissue, and speed healing. The laser also brings more hydration, oxygen, and important nutrients to the area that needs to be healed.
Besides these benefits, the laser affects the tissues on a cellular level. It increases metabolic activity in the cells, which helps nutrients to more easily reach the cell membranes. This produces cellular energy (ATP) for an overall improvement, including tissue growth and the repair of damage.
The M6 Class IV Laser is a state-of-the-art device that delivers more than 100 times as much healing energy as Class III devices of the previous generation. As a result, treatments don’t take as long, and the pain relief is immediate.
M6 is also a Multi-wave Lock System, or MLS, which means that two wavelengths are synchronized to work together. This patented system provides both analgesic and anti-inflammatory benefits simultaneously.
Each treatment is painless and takes about a half hour.
