Our office has added a state of the art, non-invasive, treatment modality which can help alleviate your pain. Laser therapy is a medical treatment that uses focused light to stimulate a process called photobiomodulation, or PBM. During PBM, photons enter the tissue and interact with the cytochrome c complex within mitochondria. This interaction 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 a non-invasive, non-pharmacological alternative for pain relief.
Laser therapy can be an alternative or adjunct to traditional treatment modalities including steroids or NSAIDS. As an added bonus, This class IV laser is the same laser the Cleveland Brown’s use on their athletes, so you can receive the Brown’s treatment right in our office.
