Class IV Laser Therapy (LiteCure)
We are one of the few chiropractic clinics in Washington to offer patients the latest advancement in safe, comfortable, and highly effective pain relief and tissue repair by offering Class IV Laser Therapy. When used in conjunction with our other treatment methods, Laser therapy can help manage pain, reduce inflammation, and help speed recovery.
Therapeutic Effects of Laser Treatment: During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.
Cellular Effects of Laser Therapy: During laser therapy the infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level and metabolic activity increases within the cell, improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane. This initiates the production of cellular energy, which leads to a cascade of beneficial effects, increasing cellular function and health.
Patient Benefits of Laser Therapy: Laser therapy is proven to stimulate tissue repair and growth. The laser accelerates the healing process and decreases inflammation, pain, and scar tissue formation. In the management of chronic pain, MLS laser therapy can provide dramatic results.
