Laser Therapy in Mesa

laser therapy on kneeChiropractic care may involve using several modalities to reduce pain and inflammation. Laser therapy is often utilized, along with other therapies, as part of your care plan. Also known as photobiomodulation (light, life, change) therapy, it’s the use of specific wavelengths of light to help increase beneficial processes in the body to assist with healing.

Laser therapy has been in use since the 1970s, but light has been used as a natural, healing source of energy for thousands of years. Adding laser therapy to their care plan increases the therapeutic effects our patients receive. Laser light energy penetrates deep to stimulate the body to produce more ATP—the energy currency of the body.

Anything the body does, whether it’s producing hormones, reducing inflammation, or helping with muscle contractions, requires ATP. When energy is needed for a task, ATP moves it where needed and releases it. Low-level laser therapy triggers photochemical reactions on a cellular level, providing energy to the cells, so they can start the healing process.

How Does It Help?

Painless, low-level laser therapy provides more opportunity to increase ATP production, benefiting the affected area in many ways. For example, after surgery, higher ATP levels help produce more collagen for good scar tissue, reduce bruising and inflammation, and speed up healing. Pain and stiffness may be reduced due to increased blood circulation in the area.

Dr. Roderick has recently treated several patients with cognitive decline. He applies laser therapy to the brain to help the nerves fire in areas where they’re not firing as well as in the past. It also removes brain fog, improves sleep, and essentially helps the brain function better.

The effects of therapy are cumulative, with patients continuing to see improvement. Dr. Roderick cautions it won’t cure Alzheimer’s, but it can help with smaller memory loss as well as some of the other symptoms associated with the disease. Grandpa might remember to put on his hearing aid now!

Benefits for All Ages

Laser therapy is also very effective on musculoskeletal injuries, such as sprains and strains.
It’s also useful after injury to speed healing and multiple skin conditions like acne, rashes, bruises, swelling and scars. We use it for all ages from children to seniors as well as for athletes and non-athletes.

Laser Therapy in Our Clinic

The laser we use is made by Erchonia, known worldwide for their low-level lasers. While the wavelength remains the same, areas in our bodies respond to different frequencies. The muscles, tendons, nerves, and blood all have different frequencies. These frequencies have been established through over 40 years of research studies.

When treating a particular condition, Dr. Jeff Roderick ensures the frequency is in tune with your body to enhance the synthesis of ATP in that area. Laser therapy is comfortable, painless, and non-invasive.

Laser therapy is one of the best adjunct therapies to use with chiropractic care. It only takes 10 minutes, 2-3 times a week, to see results. While improvement is usually seen quickly, the more chronic your condition, the results may come a bit slower.
