How Does Laser Therapy Work? | Laser Therapy in Hot Springs
At Lake Hamilton Family and Sports Chiropractic we have many from Hot Springs, Arkansas asking that same question and we’re hear to answer it.
A laser emits a wavelength of photons that painlessly transfers energy to the nerve, muscle, ligament, and tendon tissue of the area we’re treating. Laser therapy works by stimulating the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) which drives many of the processes within our cells. This increased production of ATP helps speed up the healing process within cells. Thus increasing cellular metabolism that makes healing and tissue regeneration much quicker than without.
ATP carries oxygen, blood, and nutrients to the area treated with the laser which speeds up recovery and pain relief. As a result of increased ATP production, the patient experiences reduced pain and swelling and an increased range of motion. The heat from the laser is soothing and relaxing as well. The whole process continues to work 6 to 8 hours after the short painless treatment is rendered.
