Energize at the cellular level
At Health InSyncs we use pulsed and continuous wave lasers to help you:
- Reduce pain, swelling, inflammation
- Stimulate tissue repair and regeneration
- Relieve nerve inflammation
- Relax tense muscles
Laser therapy uses photo bio-stimulation, the activation of certain cell proteins with red or infrared light. Cell proteins can absorb light energy and convert it to chemical energy. Your body uses this chemical energy to stimulate tissues cells, blood vessels, nerves, and the immune system.
More specifically the laser light can penetrate to a depth of 1-6 cm into the body (depending on the type of laser and the area treated). The laser light affects these cells so that they form and store ATP (cell fuel!), oxidative processes, and calcium ion balance in your cells.
These cellular effects in turn stimulate a next layer of effects: increased cell activity, increased collagen synthesis for tissue repair, increased resistance of nerve cells to pain, the release of growth factors promoting growth of new blood vessels, and increased immune system activity.
Laser therapy is painless for most patients, although you may feel a slight tingling or warmth during the treatment. Pain relief is sometimes immediate; in other circumstances, pain may be simply less likely to re-occur.
Dr. Sherron Marquina participates in clinical trials and field research with therapeutic lasers. She is certified in laser therapy by the Logan College of Chiropractic Postgraduate program.
