iNFUSION - Laser Therapy
What is Laser Therapy
Laser Therapy is a non-invasive, safe, and effective treatment modality where light is used to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and promote wound healing and soft tissue repair. Our laser is the only multi-wave locked system, dual wave, fully robotic laser therapy system on the market. This means deeper penetration with no heat produced allowing faster healing with no known side effects. It has been cleared by the FDA since 2009. The primary biological action of laser results from stimulation of dormant cells in the mitochondria. This action causes vasodilatation (Blood flow) and the stimulation of DNA and RNA (Building blocks), resulting in increased ATP (energy) production (Healing of the cells from the inside). The increase of vasodilatation (blood flow) and improved micro circulation will increase the supply of cellular nutrition (bringing fresh nutrient blood to the area) promoting tissue repair and remodeling of the injured area (which means you heal faster). Significant reduction in edema (swelling due to excess fluid) also occurs.
- Anti-Inflammatory: Laser Therapy has an anti-edema effect as it causes vasodilatation, but also because it activates the lymphatic drainage system which drains swollen areas. As a result, there is a reduction in swelling caused by bruising or inflammation.
- Analgesic: Laser Therapy has a beneficial effect on nerve cells. It blocks pain transmitted by these cells to the brain which decreases nerve sensitivity. Also, due to the decreased inflammation, there is less edema and less pain. Another pain blocking mechanism involves the production of high levels of pain killing chemical (endorphins) from the brain and adrenal gland.
- Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth: The lasers light penetrates deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. The laser light increases the energy available to the cell so that the cell can take on nutrients faster and get rid of waste products. As a result of exposure to laser light, damaged cells are repaired faster.
Laser light speeds the process of nerve cell reconnection and stimulates fibroblast development in damaged tissue.
