We are excited to now offer laser therapy at Gold Coast Chiropractic! This is the next generation of healing. Class IV laser therapy can stimulate all cell types, including soft tissue, ligaments, cartilage, and nerves.
Some conditions that have been shown to respond well to K-Laser include:
• Peripheral Neuropathy, Fibromyalgia
• Back and Neck Pain
• Sciatic Pain
• Arthritis pain, Degenerative Discs/Joints
• Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
• Knee Problems
• Tendinitis, Trigger Fingers
• Bunion Pains, Plantar Fasciitis
• Sprains and/or Strains
• Bruises, Contusions, Burns
• Headaches, TMJ, Sinus Trouble
• Athletic Injuries
Many patients report pain relief in as little as one treatment, and most are able to resume normal daily activities with no pain and restricted movement after their therapy is completed. This allows patients to respond quicker to their overall care plan and get back to living fast!
Treatments are administered by a technician, using a hand-held device the size of a flashlight. The laser is placed directly over the injured area for anywhere from 30 seconds to 9 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated and the treatment plan. Most patients report a warm, relaxing sensation. They generally experience no side effects or recovery period. The Goal is Healing, Not Merely Symptom Relief For too long, medicine has focused on symptom relief rather than true healing. K-Laser offers an alternative, and it’s a welcome change for athletes as well as patients interested in natural remedies.
K-Laser, also known as High Power Laser Therapy, targets damaged tissue with specific wavelengths of light that have been found to interact with tissue and accelerate the healing process. Much like photosynthesis in plants, light energy passes through the skin, into the cell membrane, initiating a process called photobiostimulation. This process enhances the body’s natural regenerative functions, as well as stimulating the release of endorphins and collagen. It may eventually even normalize damaged or injured tissue.
The result? Accelerated injury healing, as well as reduced pain, stiffness, swelling, and spasms. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored, so patients may take their life back and resume their favorite hobbies and activities.
