K-LASER PAIN MANAGEMENT OF ASHEVILLE
- Laser light stimulates fibroblast development (fibroblasts are the building blocks of collagen, which is predominant in wound healing) in damaged tissue. Collagen is the essential protein required to replace old tissue or to repair tissue injuries. As a result, laser therapy is effective on open wounds, scars, and burns.
- Laser therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns or surgery by inducing production of more normal type – 1 collagen. Scar tissue is the primary source of chronic pain.
- Laser light has an anti-Denicke effect as it causes vasodilation, but also activates the lymphatic drainage system (drain swollen areas). As a result, there is a reduction in swelling caused by bruising or inflammation.
- Laser therapy has a highly beneficial effect on nerve cells which block pain transmitted by the cells to the brain and which decreases nerve sensitivity. Also, due to less inflammation, there is less edema in less pain. Another pain blocking mechanism involved in the production of high levels of painkilling chemicals such as endorphins and enkephalins from the brain and adrenal gland.
- Laser light will significantly increase the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue that speeds up the healing process, close skin wounds quickly and reduce scar tissue. Additional benefits include acceleration of angiogenesis, which causes temporary vasodilation, an increase in the diameter of blood vessels. More blood flow equals faster healing and less pain.
- Laser therapy enhances enzymatic activity within the cell, facilitates oxygen delivery from the bloodstream into the respiratory chain, and increases cell membrane permeability. The damaged cells can repair and regenerate faster.
- Slow recovery of nerve functions and damaged tissue can result in numbness and impaired lens. Laser light will speed up the process of nerve cell reconnection and increase the amplitude of action potentials to optimize muscle action.
- Photons are absorbed by Chromo phoebes (molecular enzymes) that react to laser light. The enzyme is activated and starts the production of ATP, which is the major carrier of cell energy and the energy source for all chemical healing reactions in cells. Long lasting pain relief occurs.
- Laser therapy reduces muscle trigger points and stimulates acupuncture points on a non-invasive basis providing musculoskeletal pain relief.
