MedX Low-Level Laser Therapy
Low-Level Laser Therapy is a modality that uses light energy on a specific wavelength to penetrate deep into tissue. This light energy is absorbed by the various tissues in the body (muscles, joints, ligaments) and is transferred into biochemical energy. As a result, there is a decrease in swelling, acceleration in healing time, and an increase in the pain threshold, due to the release of endorphins (morphine-like substances that inhibit the sensation of pain). This increase in pain threshold also allows for increased tolerance to manual therapies, such as Active Release Techniques®, to help you get the results you need. Therapeutic Laser is very safe, and has been proven very effective in the treatment osteoarthritis, muscle strains, andsports injuries, just to name a few.
