Deep Tissue Laser Therapy
New Laser Pain Relief In Tucker & Brookhaven
Class IV Laser Therapy is a great alternative for those suffering repetitive motion injuries and for those who want to avoid reliance on painkillers. The laser penetrates skin to target the injury which interacts with your cells, boosting the circulatory system through the absorption of the healing lights. When oxygen can flow into swollen and painful areas the body has an easier time providing nutrients to damaged areas. Patients who have benefited from Deep Tissue Laser Therapy include those suffering acute and chronic pains include those suffering:
• Headaches & sinus headaches
• Seasonal allergies
• Hip & low back pain
• Spine & shoulder pain
• Muscle & joint pain
• Sport injuries (strains & sprains)
Boost Body’s Natural Healing Process
Low-level laser therapy relies on your body’s natural response to light causing what’s known as a photochemical reaction. This reaction triggers the enzymes in the cells’ mitochondria to produce energy. Even though there are over-the-counter laser devices nothing can compare to the professional medical equipment offered through an advanced certified Chiropractic BioPhysics spine doctor. Deep Tissue Laser Therapy treatment may require more than one visit before you notice significant improvement. Some people have reported improvement after one treatment of laser therapy.

What are the side effects of deep tissue laser therapy?
Class IV laser therapy (now called photobiomodulation) devices were cleared in 2004 by the FDA for the safe and efficacious reduction of pain and increasing micro-circulation. Therapy lasers are safe and effective treatment options to reduce musculoskeletal pain due to injury. The biggest risk of injury during laser therapy treatments is to the eye, which is why certified, protective eyewear is always required during our laser treatments. There are no known side effects, but there are contraindications to treatment. We screen our patients for those contraindications prior to treatment.
How long does laser therapy last?
With CSS’s lasers, treatments are quick usually 3-10 minutes depending on the size, depth, and acuteness of the condition being treated. High-power lasers are able to deliver a lot of energy in a small amount of time, allowing therapeutic dosages to be achieved quickly. For patients and clinicians with packed schedules, fast and effective treatments are a must.
We usually encourage our patients to receive 2-3 treatments per week as the therapy is initiated. There is well-documented support that the benefits of deep tissue laser therapy are cumulative, suggesting that plans for incorporating laser as part of a patient’s plan of care should involve early, frequent treatments that may be administered less frequently as the symptoms resolve.
What are the benefits of deep tissue laser therapy?
Laser therapy is a medical treatment that triggers a biological cascade of events that leads to an increase in cellular metabolism, decrease in pain, reduction in muscle spasm, and improved microcirculation to injured tissue. This treatment is FDA cleared and provides patients with a non-invasive, non-pharmacological alternative for pain relief.
Laser therapy has been shown to be effective to help treat acute conditions. Bringing pain under control quickly helps the healing process and usually helps promote better outcomes.
Chronic Conditions: With chronic conditions, research has shown that therapy lasers can be used to help combat persistent pain and promote circulation to damaged tissues. It can be a powerful, non-pharmaceutical solution to help reduce pain without the side effects of medication.
Post-Activity Recovery: LightForce® Therapy Lasers can be found on the sidelines of many pro, college, and Olympic sports teams across United States and many parts of Europe and Asia. Deep tissue laser therapy has been shown to be effective at improving post-activity recovery times and reducing delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS).
How long does it take to recover from laser therapy?
There is no recovery time. Patients usually experience immediate pain relief or notice a significant improvement with their symptoms with just one treatment session, which can take up to 10 minutes. Sometimes a course of 6 treatments of laser therapy is indicated over 2-3 weeks to have lasting effect on a chronic condition.
