At Florida Regional Pain Management, PA: Shonith Manohar, MD, we use high-powered diode laser therapy to treat acute and chronic pain and inflammation. The treatment involves the use of the right wavelengths of light that penetrate into the tissue and accelerate the healing process to relieve pain, inflammation, and spasms.
What Is Laser Therapy Used For?
Laser therapy is used in pain management for various concerns like:
- Arthritis and tendonitis
- Back and neck pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Knee pain
How Does Laser Therapy Work?
The goal of laser therapy is to stimulate cells to regenerate and perform their natural functions at an improved rate. When the light source is placed on your skin, the photons penetrate tissues and get absorbed by your cells. The energy absorbed by the cells accelerates positive physiological responses in your body, leading to the restoration of normal cell function.
What Are the Benefits of Laser Therapy?
- Laser therapy is a painless and non-invasive form of treatment, providing quick and efficient results for many conditions.
- This therapy cuts down the need for medication and does not have side effects.
- It promotes regeneration and improved physical functions.
- Laser therapy doesn’t interact with any drugs, and you can pair it up with other treatments to obtain quicker results.
- It is a sought-after treatment alternative for those who do not respond well to other treatments and therapies.
What Are the Effects of Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy produces an anti-edemic effect in your body, causes vasodilation, stimulates the lymphatic system, and accelerates cell repair. Consequently, you will experience reduced swelling, pain, and bruising.
Laser therapy has many positive effects such as blocking pain transmitted by cells to your brain, decreasing sensitivity, and releasing endorphins.
Improved Cell Regeneration
Laser therapy increases the levels of energy delivered to your cells. Thus, your body cells will absorb nutrients and eliminate waste products faster. It also promotes accelerated tissue repair.
Improved Vascular Activity
Laser therapy increases the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissues and therefore speeds up the healing process. It also helps wounds close faster and prevents tissues from scarring.
Improved Metabolic Activity
Laser therapy creates higher outputs of healthy enzymes and improves oxygen and food particle loads for your blood cells, thereby increasing your metabolic activity.
