Aspen laser therapy is one of the many effective techniques we use at Homer Family Chiropractor. It’s commonly used to treat knee pain, foot pain, and to reduce inflammation.
How Aspen Laser Therapy Works
Laser therapy uses light energy units, called photons, to heal damaged cells in the body. The creation of a biochemical called Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) is accelerated by stimulation of the mitochondria by the photons.
This results in the rapid reduction of inflammation in the body, joints, and muscles. The process also stimulates tissue growth, increases blood flow, and helps the body to heal itself.
5 Health Issues Aspen Laser Therapy Can Treat That May Surprise You
Studies have consistently shown that high and low-level intensity laser treatment is highly effective in treating numerous conditions such as back pain. However, it is also effective with some other conditions you may not be aware of.
1. Sinus Headache
Sinus headaches are extremely painful and can be quite debilitating. For long-term sufferers of sinus problems, the traditional treatment has been painful and messy sinus surgery.
Laser therapy has since replaced surgery as the preferred treatment for sinus headaches. There are few side effects and little recovery time is needed.
2. Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
TMJ is a misalignment in the teeth or jaw that can be very painful. It can be caused by grinding teeth poor posture, arthritis, stress, or chewing gum.
3. Scar Tissue Reduction
Aspen laser therapy reduces the appearance of scars from injury or surgery.
4. Improved Nerve Function
Laser light speeds up the process of nerve cell reconnection which allows damaged tissues to heal quicker. This reduces symptoms such as numbness and weakness in your limbs.
5. Joint Inflammation
Laser therapy reduces inflammation in the joints (such as shoulder pain) due to arthritis and other conditions. This increases your mobility and reduces pain.
