Laser Therapy or "photobiomodulation", is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near infrared) to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. Clinical applications include caring for soft tissue injury, chronic pain, wound healing and nerve regeneration, and possibly even resolving viral and bacterial infections.
Once the light energy passes through the layers of skin and reaches the target area, it is absorbed and interacts with the light sensitive elements in the cell. This process can be compared to photosynthesis in plants - sunlight is absorbed by plants, which is then converted to usable energy so that the plant can grow.
When cells absorb this light energy, it initiates a series of events in the cell that is theorized to eventually result in normalizing damaged or injured tissue, a reduction in pain, inflammation, edema and an overall reduction in healing time by increasing intracellular metabolism.
Ultrasound waves pass from the ultrasound head into the skin causing the vibration of the surrounding tissues, particularly those that contain collagen. This increased vibration leads to the production of heat within the tissue. This therapy is used to accelerate healing of the soft tissues, break up scar tissue development, help to reduce pain and muscle spasm and promote the healing process. Reduce pain and get better fast with Dr. Travis Davis at Laguna Bay Chiropractic in Noosa. Dr. Davis uses ultrasound to care for plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff tears, TFL Band irritation, bursitis, tendonitis, muscle strains, frozen shoulder, ligament sprains, and much more.
Electric Muscle Stimulation / Interferential
Electric Muscle Stimulation Therapy is used in caring for various pain issues utilizing electrical muscle stimulation to reach deeper layers of the muscles. It is often used for localized pain relief especially for muscle pains such as fibromyalgia and muscle strains. The mechanism of the muscle stimulation is it delivers small pulsating currents directly on the muscles, which in turn promotes muscle stimulation, blood circulation and muscle healing.
The main benefit of electrical muscle stimulation therapy is pain relief. The electrical currents allow the muscles to release tension and stress relieving muscle soreness, tightness and body aches. For joint pains, electric muscle stimulation therapy also may improve joint symptoms as relaxation of the smooth muscles around a painful joint can help foster healing from joint inflammation. It prevents and reverses muscle atrophy, offers fast muscle recovery for various injuries, offers stress relief and generates energy for muscle activities.
