State -of-the-Art Treatment to Increase Health and Wellness, and decrease Chronic and Acute Pain
LASER is an acronym which stands for Light Amplicfication of Stimulated Emission of Radiation. It is a focused beam of healing light energy. It is also "non-ionizing," meaning it does not collect in the tissues and is therefore very safe.
How does LASER work?
The LZ30's Infrared LASER light works locally, at the point of pain or wound site, to reduce pain and speed up the healing of tissue. It is used to treat underlying causes, and stimulates the cells' mitochondria to create the (ATP) energy that cells need in order to heal and function at their peak.
In the case of a new injury, your doctor may recommend LASER treatments to stabilize the injured area, speed up healing, and reduce pain, or - in the case of chronic conditions - to improve muscle strength, increase a joint's range of motion, and reduce pain.
How will LASER work for me?
The benefits of this most researched and proven wavelength for health and healing are widely known and varied, and include:
- Increased energy of the cell and overall cellular healing
- Pain reduction
- Relaxed muscles and increased range of motion
- Improved circulation
- Accelerated healing of wounds and burns
- Increased anti-oxidant + decreased inflammation
- Promotes collagen production for tissue repair
How many treatments will I require?
To begin the healing process, your doctor may recommend treatments once a day for serious, acute conditions, or once a week for less serious conditions. She may also add LASER treatments to your scheduled adjustments to maintain the adjustments longer. Clinical studies have shown that some patients may experience relief immediately. Your doctor will evaluate and recommend as needed.
Since LASER therapy is global/body-wide as well, many patients have also experienced improved conditions which were not treated with LASER.
You may notice that your doctor employs LASER treatments in multiple areas to treat one condition, including (1) the area of pain, (2) the supporting muscles, and (3) the nerve root associated with that muscle and pain point. This is because the muscle is the primary stabilizer of the joint - a typical pain point - and if the muscle is weak, it makes the joint susceptible to an injury. Should there already be an injury, a weak muscle may make the joint susceptible to inflammation.
If you have pain, you likely have inflammation. Certain nerves are connected to certain muscles, and by lasering the nerve root associated with the muscle, the LASER is delivering energy at both ends for most efficient healing.
What will I feel?
The patient will feel ease of movement, greater strength, and less pain. As with all healing modalities, patients respond at different rates and have different sensitivities. Some patients feel mild warmth, others a tingling sensation, and still others, nothing at all. These are all normal responses, and in all of these scenarios, the laser is actively working to help the patient.
How long will the benefit of my LASER treatment last?
Results can be immediate, and last from days to weeks. In some cases, they can last for months. Sometimes, the issue returns only if the patient re-injures a given area. As with all therapies, patients respond differently. Some require several treatments to address the symptom as well as the underlying cause, while others respond with fewer treatments.
How can I maximize my LASER therapy?
LASER treatments are more efficient when the patient is well-hydrated, because the laser's photon travels through the body's water molecule. They're also more efficient when the patient has a diet of "good" fat - extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), butter, fish oils, etc. - versus "bad" fat - trans or hydrogenated fat.
