What is Laser Pain Relief therapy?

laser pain reliefLaser pain relief at Traverse Health in Lehi, Utah is an extremely safe yet effective natural healing therapy. High powered laser therapy or Deep Tissue Laser Therapy is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and help accelerate your healing process. High power laser treatment can be used for both acute and chronic conditions in order to eliminate pain and swelling, increase functionality, and reduce spasms.

Our integrative team will place the high powered laser directly on the injured area for a few minutes. The laser therapy has the ability to penetrate two to five centimeters below the skin at 90 mW and 830 nm.

Our high powered laser emits energy which passes through your skin and reaches the injured area at which time, the energy is absorbed and interacts with the light-sensitive elements in your cells. When cells absorb this light energy, it will assist with normalizing damaged or injured tissue, reducing pain, inflammation, edema, and overall healing time.

Research on Laser Therapy for Chemotherapy-induced Peripheral Neuropathy

Chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy is a common side effect from chemotherapy agents. Laser therapy devices deliver photobiomodulation and were approved in 2002 for pain management. The current research suggest that these devices work by stimulating a local release of serotonin and increased ATP production providing anti-inflammatory effects.

A 2012 study published by the Journal of Clinical Oncology found laser therapy as a viable option for non-medical management for chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy after 8 weeks of treatment without any recorded side effects. Participants in the study had improvement in walking as well as quality of life scoring.
