How does laser therapy work?

How does laser therapy work?

Laser therapy works by creating a biological reaction using a photochemical event. This process is called photobiomodulation. The body’s healing process has four phases: hemostasis, inflammation, proliferation and remodeling. After hemostasis occurs (the stop of blood flow immediately after cell injury), the blood begins to coagulate and the body starts to heal itself. Inflammation allows the body to eliminate damaged tissues after the initial cell injury. Laser therapy reduces the time of inflammation so the body can move on to the next healing phase. The proliferation process (enhancement of cells) has been demonstrated to accelerate after laser treatment. The laser light enables the body to stimulate cell proliferation, to repair cell mechanisms, regenerate and remodel healthy tissues.

During this accelerated healing process through laser therapy, fibroblasts (fibrous proteins found in connective tissue) are stimulated and produce collagen in the region of treatment. Collagen promotes angiogenesis (development of blood vessels) so the cell has more energy to replicate faster. Laser therapy also causes vasodilation, otherwise known as the expansion of capillaries, to further increase blood circulation.

Laser therapy is proven to aid neuropathic pain by stopping pain signals that are sent to the brain. This process assists in all tendon, ligament and muscle repair for an end result of a balanced treatment with benefits for everyone.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Although I still have the occasional headache, the daily and sometimes debilitating ones have subsided. I highly recommend In Motion Chiropractic to anyone that is looking for that personal touch that has pain or is just looking to maintain their health."
    Stacey L.
  • "First time in about 16 years that my jaw joint has been in alignment. No more clicking. Even if it takes years to retrain my bite, this was an unexpected fabulous surprise that came from my treatment."
    Sarah
  • "This team is exceptional in every way! They’re so committed to their clients’ overall health and experience. I’ll never go any where else!"
    Christine
  • "After starting treatment here in October, my rheumatologist recently told me he’d see me in a YEAR - and NO MORE MEDS. I’ve been fighting Lupus/Psoriatic Arthritis for 13 years, so this is huge for me.

    Brian and Cassie are fantastic (props to Stacy too!) They have also treated my 2 year old and now my husband has an appointment. THANK YOU IN MOTION!!

    If you are prenatal start now...I wish I had known how safe and helpful it is through pregnancy and beyond."
