8 Therapeutic Effects of Laser Therapy

Is chronic pain preventing you from living your best life? You may want to consider high dose cold laser therapy. Since the FDA approved laser therapy for pain in 2003, it has helped countless patients with injuries or chronic pain conditions improve their quality of life. Laser therapy works by using photobiomodulation. Wavelengths of light to treat the source of your pain deep beneath the skin at its source. For more information, we recommend scheduling an appointment with Pain Free Life Centers of Michigan near you.

  • Reduces Pain

Does chronic pain interfere with your life? If so, you may want to consider the benefits of laser therapy. A therapeutic laser is able to send light wavelengths deep beneath the skin to target the source of your pain. If you want to avoid the side effects of prescription opioid medications, schedule an appointment with Pain Free Life Centers of Michigan that specializes in high dose cold laser therapy.

  • Accelerates Tissue Repair and Cell Growth

Laser therapy works at the cellular level to trigger your body’s natural healing response. Not only does our therapeutic laser reduce inflammation, but it also increases blood flow to the area giving the cells the extra nutrients and energy they need to heal.

  • Improves Nerve Function

When your nerves are healthy, they send pain signals to the brain so you are aware of illness or disease. However, if your nerves have been damaged by diabetes, amputation, or other circumstances, you may experience chronic pain or numbness when these nerves misfire. High dose laser therapy has been shown to improve nerve function so you can enjoy a better quality of life without pain or numbness.

  • Helps Wounds Heal Faster

If you are healing from an injury or surgery, you may want to consider laser treatments. We understand that the last thing you want after surgery is an invasive procedure for pain management that will only cause more pain. Laser treatment is non-invasive and doesn’t create scar tissue. During the procedure, the most you’ll feel is a soothing warm sensation against your skin from the laser. High dose cold laser therapy also comes without side effects, which can’t be said of prescription opioid medications used to manage pain.

  • Reduces Scar Tissue

Laser therapy is able to increase blood flow around the site of an injury or surgical incision. By increasing blood flow, the cells will get the energy and nutrients they need to start the healing process.

  • Regulates Your Immune System

Inflammation is your immune system’s first response to injury and infection. While a strong response to infection and injury is good for quick healing, it becomes too difficult for your body to maintain in the long term. As a result, chronic inflammation puts extra stress on your organs and can even be responsible for heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and even depression. Laser therapy has been shown to decrease chronic inflammation and swelling.

  • Stimulates Muscles

The medical lasers we use are able to penetrate deep beneath the skin to stimulate your muscles. If you have been dealing with chronic lower back pain or some other type of musculoskeletal pain, you owe it to yourself to ask about laser therapy. Musculoskeletal pain is often the result of car accidents, falls, or overuse.

  • Improves Vascular Activity

Chronic inflammation increases your risk for heart disease and stroke by increasing the amount of plaque in your blood vessels, which could potentially block the flow of blood. Laser therapy reduces chronic inflammation, so blood vessels stay clear.
