At PC Medical Centers, we are pleased to offer our patients the latest advancement in safe, comfortable, and highly effective pain relief and tissue repair. With our Laser Therapy treatments, you can avoid invasive surgeries, costly medications, and greatly reduce your recovery time.
What is laser therapy?
This Laser Therapy treatment was developed to produce an efficient and simultaneous effect on pain, inflammation, and edema exceeding the limits of traditional laser therapy. Considered a medical breakthrough in laser therapy, it is a non-invasive and pain-free alternative to prescription pain medication and has zero side effects and has been approved by the FDA since 2009.
Laser Therapy uses two wavelengths to treat an array of conditions or injuries. One wave offers continuous laser emission targeting inflammation and stimulating blood circulation and cell activity while the second wave pulses to reduce pain immediately.
How does laser therapy work?
Our physicians are able to control the laser energy allowing for accurate delivery with consistent and repeatable results at various tissue penetration depths depending on your condition. This precise control minimizes the risk of thermal damage while still producing anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects.
Laser therapy uses specific wavelengths of light to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and promote a speedy recovery and soft tissue repair. The energy enters damaged cells and stimulates inter-cellular activity. This light energy is converted into biochemical energy and restores and enhances the body’s natural healing process.
This versatile treatment option can be used to treat a variety of conditions including:
- Tendon and ligament injuries
- Muscle fatigue, muscle strains or sprains, and muscle tears
- Degenerative joint conditions
- Musculoskeletal disorders
- Swelling and inflammation
- Disc disease
Laser Therapy is also safe and approved for treating injuries or conditions that may involve metal implants. No heating is involved, enabling safe and effective healing throughout the treatment process.
What are the benefits??
The benefits of laser therapy are that it is anti-inflammatory, promotes accelerated tissue repair and cell growth improvement in nerve function, and restores the body’s reparative ability. Some additional benefits of receiving treatment include but are not limited to:
- Rapid pain relief without the need for prescription painkillers
- Increase in oxygenated blood and improved circulation
- Reducing swelling caused by bruising or inflammation
- Accelerated tissue repair and cell growth
- Improvement in nerve regeneration, vascular and metabolic activity, and immune function
The effects of Laser Therapy are cumulative, so expect to see improvements as you continue with your treatment.
Patients with acute conditions find that symptoms subside quickly within the first phase of treatments. Those with chronic conditions find laser therapy is able to manage and treat their condition with regular treatments.
