Laser Therapy

Deep Tissue Laser Therapy Amarillo TX

As champions of conservative care, it seems only natural that we would embrace a non-invasive, inexpensive treatment like laser therapy. Low level laser therapy (LLLT) has been around since the 1970’s and its use for reducing pain and speeding recovery is backed by over 4000 peer-reviewed research studies.

How it works

Light energy, in the form of LLLT, triggers a number of cellular mechanisms that are critical to healing and pain reduction. Light energy…

  • Stimulates the production of adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP), the molecule that powers all cellular activity.
  • Triggers the release of nitric oxide molecules that, in turn, increase blood flow
  • Enhances white blood cell activity and speeds the elimination of inflammatory agents
  • Stimulates the production of new cartilage-producing cells (chondrocytes)*

Class IV Laser

Class IV Laser is more powerful than traditional Cold Laser (Class III), reducing the amount of time it takes to deliver a therapeutic dose. A typical treatment session with Class IV Laser takes less than 10 minutes.

Common issues that respond well to laser therapy include:

  • Arthritis**
  • Tendinitis
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Neuropathy
  • Sciatica
  • Rotator Cuff Injury/Shoulder Pain
  • Bursitis of the hip, shoulder, knee

CLINICALLY PROVEN

Laser Therapy is clinically proven as an effective treatment for pain and inflammation. Able to penetrate to deep tissue structures, it has the ability to treat a wide variety of both acute and chronic conditions.

ALTERNATIVE TO DRUGS AND SURGERY

The non-invasive nature of Deep Tissue Laser Therapy provides a solution for those who are looking for alternatives to prescription drugs and surgery.

THE RIGHT DELIVERY METHOD

Deep tissue conditions are treated especially well using the LightForce™ Therapy Laser’s patented Laser-Massage® treatment head. This patented feature allows the practitioner to deliver energy while manipulating underlying tissue and muscle thus enhancing the effectiveness of the treatment.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Patients feel a soothing warmth as laser energy gently penetrates tissue and boosts your body’s own regeneration powers to relieve your pain. Treatments are painless and fast (5 to 10 min).

Results can be immediate but the most observed results are after 3 to 5 treatment sessions. The body continues to benefit from the effects of the therapy for 18-24 hours after treatment. During this time, modulated cellular activity leads to decreased pain and inflammation.

Laser Therapy Scientific Advances

SCIENCE AND EVIDENCE-BASED THERAPY

The number of scientific studies and published papers on laser therapy continue to grow, with over 3,000 current published studies. LightForce, our laser therapy provider, is an industry leader with regards to clinical trials and scientific research.

RECENT TECHNOLOGY ADVANCES

"Cold Lasers" have been in use for over 20 years with only limited results. Laser therapy treatments with these lower power lasers (< 50 mW) have not provided the consistency practitioners desire.

Only recently have higher power therapy lasers become more common. With the introduction of these lasers, observable results are more readily achieved in a wide variety of patients. Advances in scientific understanding and technology have made Deep Tissue Laser Therapy an increasingly popular treatment option for pain and inflammation associated with a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions.
