18 Apr Laser Treatment in Chiropractic Care
Laser Treatment for Muscle Recovery
The laser was invented in 1960, and the biological stimulation properties of laser light were discovered shortly after, in 1967. Even though therapy lasers have been used in Europe much longer than in the United States, in 2002, the FDA cleared therapy lasers for treating injuries and enhancing recovery. Now, multiple researchers throughout the world are finding an enormous therapeutic application of different laser infrared wavelengths like red, green, and blue wavelengths and their effects on tissues.
Non invasive procedure with deep results
During the procedure, you’ll feel the device against your skin, but it creates no heat, sound, or vibration. Even better, it is completely noninvasive and painless. Most of the time, one treatment will take only a few minutes.Differing wavelengths and outputs are used, depending on the purpose of the treatment. Generally speaking, wavelengths between 600 and 700 nanometers (nm) are used to treat superficial tissue. Wavelengths between 780 and 950 nm are used for deeper penetration. Low-level light is applied directly to the problem area. The tissue then absorbs the light. In a basic sense, this leads to a biological or chemical reaction to red and infrared light. Damaged cells have a physiological response that helps promote their regeneration.
