Since running an article on the use of LightForce Laser, Photobiostimulation in the previous edition of The Wise Guide: LightForce Laser, Photobiostimulation Relieves Pain & Enables Healing, I have had many new patients come to me with a variety of needs. I wanted to share their experiences with readers, and encourage you to read the previous article to understand how photobiostimulation works, and consider this form of treatment for your own acute or chronic condition. The article is also posted on my website danmooredc.com or you may obtain a printed copy from my office.
Whether you are seeking faster healing, or relief from chronic pain, this non-invasive form of therapy can help you. It helped me when nothing else worked for a nerve injury causing excruciating pain in my leg. It is because of my own experiences that I have brought this treatment option to my patients.
Infrared laser therapy treatment helps reduce pain, reduce inflammation, and enhance tissue healing, both in hard and soft tissues, including muscles, ligaments, or even bones.
It increases oxygenation of tissues and allows injured or damaged cells to absorb photos of light, which speeds healing. Class 4 laser therapy can be effectively combined with a number of other treatment modalities.
Laser therapy can be helpful for acute injuries, such as strains, sprains, and shoulder injuries; repetitive-use injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome; traumatic injuries, and chronic issues such as frozen shoulder and arthritis.
One of the greatest benefits I’ve found is that Class IV laser therapy allows the body to heal without the use of prescription drugs. These patients whose testimonials follow, were treated using photobistimulation via the LightForce Class IV Laser.
A typical treatment session can take anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes, dependent upon your injury or condition. The majority of conditions require 6 to 12 treatments over a two- to four-week period of time.
Here are just a few examples:
“I’m suffering from plantar fasciitis and the laser treatment helped with inflammation and my pain level. It has given me a new outlook for staying active and working in a whole new light! ” Sharon C.
Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of heel pain. It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of the foot connecting the heel bone to the toes (plantar fascia). It seems that there is little agreement as to who may develop it, nor the best treatment, however there is one thing that does help and that is laser therapy, but not just any laser therapy. The deep tissue laser reaches into the location of the pain and works there.
“Deep tissue laser therapy has been very effective at alleviating the pain and swelling from a broken ankle. I’m getting back on my feel much faster than expected.” Cynthia D.
It takes at least 6 weeks for a broken ankle to heal, sometimes longer, depending upon the severity and location of the breakage. Class IV laser therapy allows my patients to return to the activities they love while maintaining their healthy lifestyle. Recovery from injuries is much faster, often avoiding surgery altogether.
“I sustained a deep cut on my finger while on a construction job and had a laser treatment right away. After the treatment, I had almost no pain, and my finger healed phenomenally fast.” Forest D.
Laser therapy generates a photochemical response in damaged tissue by a process called photobiomodulation. This process stimulates healing on a cellular level by enabling cells to more rapidly produce energy (ATP).
“I came into the office bent over with a painful limp and walked out like a normal human being. Dr.Moore actually hears me, knows what is causing my pain and takes time to fix it.” Judy M.
Deep tissue laser therapy is a non-invasive use of laser energy that promotes healing of damaged or dysfunctional tissue. This form of therapy helps your body use its own natural healing power by activating a positive cellular response, increasing microcirculation to reduce inflammation. For those suffering from chronic, nagging pain, inflammation and lack of mobility, Class IV laser therapy offers fast, healing relief.
“I am diabetic and haven’t had any feeling in my feet for years, although my legs feel like they are on fire sometimes. With just the first treatment, I felt tingling in my lower legs and feet, and walking isn’t as painful.” Charles B.
In general, diabetic neuropathy is thought to be the result of chronic nerve damage caused by high blood sugars. Similar to how an electric wire is surrounded by insulation, our nerves are surrounded by a covering of cells called Schwann cells. Water is drawn into these cells causing nerve swelling and damage resulting in pain. Unless the process is stopped and reversed, both the Schwann cells and the nerves they surround will die. The application of photobiostimulation that the Class IV laser delivers to these cells prevents or reverses the biochemical processes that cause this damage.
My own personal experience:
“I traveled to Boise seeking Class IV laser therapy. It was recommended to me by a neurologist after medication and treatment failed to address nerve injury and a terrible radiating pain in my left leg. It worked so well that I wanted to share it with my patients.”
Dr. Daniel Moore, D.C.
The LightForce Class IV Laser was developed by leading laser scientists and engineers and we are proud to offer one of the very few Class IV LightForce Lasers in North Idaho.
I have treated hundreds of patients with such great results that I have many health care practitioners stop in to see what deep laser therapy can do for their patients. We encourage those who have tried other forms of treatment without success to try the technology
We have already seen many of our patients benefit from this treatment with as few as two treatments. We are so confident that this exciting new treatment can help you that your first treatment is on us. Contact our office at (208) 267-2506 to schedule your complimentary first treatment and start your road to a pain-free life today.
