Since being cleared by the FDA, the advancements in laser therapy for pain treatment have
been nothing short of remarkable. At US Healthcare MI, PC, we have developed a treatment protocol that uses a combination of specific frequencies of light to reduce pain and
Laser therapy works through the scientific process of Photobiomodulation, (Photo=light, bio=life, modulation=change). In this process of “life changing light,” photons of light from the laser penetrate subdermally, going directly to the source of the pain at the cellular level. The light waves produced by the laser reduces the inflammation and increases blood flow around the affected area, which provides the energy and nutrients the cells require to heal. Not only does laser therapy promote healing, it also allows for an instant reduction in pain. It can be used on patients who suffer from a variety of acute and chronic conditions in order to help eliminate pain, swelling, reduce spasms and increase functionality.
The lasers are handheld devices used by the clinician and are often the size of a flashlight. The laser is placed directly over the injured area for 30 seconds to several minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated and the dose provided by the laser unit.
