Laser Treatment for Pain Relief

If you’ve ever had any Laser Therapy as part of our therapeutic session at RolfPros you may have asked: How does laser work? Why are you using it on me?  

You may have heard me spout off terms like Photobiomodulation, ATP, Mitochondria, Class IV Laser, Kebs Cycle, etc. And maybe you walked away more confused than when you came in, especially if you haven’t had an anatomy/physiology class.

What is a Laser Treatment and How Does it Actually Work.

Laser therapy is a form of alternative medicine that has been used for decades since the 1960s. The Laser alleviates pain and inflammation by a treatment method known as photobiomodulation at its most basic level. For this article, we will explore how laser therapy works and some of the different ways it can be applied.

Laser treatment has many health benefits, including reducing inflammation in the body, speeding up the healing process of injuries like tendonitis or conditions like arthritis.

A laser, also known as Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (LASER), can penetrate deep into the tissue to stimulate cells on the molecular level. This stimulation helps reduce pain, inflammation, or other symptoms often associated with medical conditions or injuries.   Technological advancements have led to lasers having more power and specific wavelengths that are now used to treat pain in various body parts.

Below is an excellent yet short video by LiteCure® and how their Laser works for those interested a little more in medical science. 

Why at RolfPros we use LiteCure LightForce® Laser Therapy

I selected LiteCure LightForce® Laser Therapy after doing a lot of research on laser therapy with UCI Beckman Laser Institute & Medical Clinic, internationally recognized for research and innovation in photomedicine. At the time, there was a lot of misinformation out about “red light magic” or LLLT (Low-Level Laser Therapy).

Every manufacturer is different, and all claim they’re the best. The LiteCure research results were very favorable compared to other treatments, especially true for neuro-musculoskeletal pain, “bio-stimulation,” and increased tissue repair due to its diode wavelength and power.

It is like a tricked-out stock car that you see at the Daytona 500.

When there is an injury, a lot of things are happening underneath the skin:

  • Acceleration of inflammation process, oxygenation of damaged tissue.
  • Decrease in swelling from the source problem area.
  • Increase in proteoglycans (waterish in connective tissue aka fascia) which goes hand in hand with Rolfing®.

It’s why at RolfPros I use Laser Therapy. It brings about the pain relief you are seeking.

Is Laser Therapy worth trying out?

As a quick overview of how laser therapy is beneficial in case, you are still wondering if it’s worth trying out or not.
 

  • Laser therapy can be used for pain relief, joint mobility problems, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and many more
  •  Laser therapy is also being used by some athletes as an alternative to physiotherapy after injuries.

What Kind of Pain Can a Laser Treat & What Kind of Treatment Options are Available?

Lasers can offer different types of pain relief and treatment options.

Lasers can offer different types of pain relief and treatment options. The laser pain relief process is unlike any other that we have seen before because instead of taking a numbing medication that will numb the body and make it feel like it’s in a daze. Instead, Laser Therapy reduces inflammation associated with persistent pain. People who have undergone laser therapy have reported long-lasting pain relief.

At RolfPros, that is a significant concern for us.

There are few types of pain that lasers can treat: acute, chronic, and neuropathic pain. Acute pain is immediate and is a result of some injury or sometimes a surgical procedure. It usually doesn’t last more than 60 days. Chronic pain is more persistent, recurring, and more lingering. Neuropathic pain by nerve damage tends to be more severe, and more medical treatment is needed.

How to Choose the Right Treatment That’s Compliant with Your Needs? 

Some people will be able to take a certain treatment, and others might not. When you go to the doctor, they will need to know your needs and conditions to provide you with the most appropriate treatment possible. This is why it is important for you to find out which treatments are right for you before committing to one.

At RolfPros, we are different. Our recover right program is a different treatment protocol. We would love to discuss its merits in detail and to see if we meet your needs.

Laser treatment is a safe and effective way to relieve pain, so start using it today to feel better.

How Laser Therapy Can Help You

Laser therapy is a method of pain management that professionals have used for the past three decades. It is a non-invasive, drug-free, and relatively inexpensive approach to dealing with chronic pain.

With laser therapy, the patient is exposed to low light energy levels absorbed by cells deep within the body and converted into ATP. This process then stimulates healing and reduces inflammation to promote healing and reduce discomfort.

RolfPros was founded by Fred Nehring, Certified Advanced Rolfer®, HHP, who has helped hundreds of clients tackle everything from physical rehabilitation needs to sports injuries to myofascial pain through Rolfing®, LiteCure LightForce® Laser Therapy, Rocktape™ Kinesiology Taping, since 2004.

Fred treats the whole patient. His approach focuses on the connective tissue and not just muscles, unlike traditional massage, physical therapy, and chiropractic work. Connective tissue wraps around bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and organs, supporting and holding them in place. By releasing the dysfunctional pattern in the connective tissue through Lite Cure LightForce®, Laser Therapy, RockTape™ Kinesiology Taping, and Rolfing® pioneered by Dr. Ida Rolf.

Fred addresses the core of injuries and body issues, not just a symptom. As a result of his comprehensive knowledge, the body finds a new way to organize and balance itself, thus reducing or eliminating chronic pain, dysfunction, and fatigue.
