Imagine the surprise when researchers learned that certain light frequencies could actually reduce inflammation and enhance the healing process. When patients learn that we use laser therapy in our practice, they have visions of a powerful, steel-cutting beam of light. The “cold” laser we use has only a tiny fraction of the power. Instead, its value comes from the frequency of the light it emits, not its intensity.
Instead of the full spectrum of light that comes from the sun, our low level laser produces light in a narrow frequency. Frequencies in the red portion of the rainbow are shown to assist the healing of soft tissues. Apparently, cells of our body have receptors that are sensitive to light.
Laser treatment is a non-invasive method to help reduce acute and chronic pain.This treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery. Laser treatments take just minutes depending on the condition being treated. The treatment must be administered directly to skin for better efficacy. You feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered. Patients generally see results after 2 to 5 treatments. Multi Radiance Medical laser technology has been used safely and effectively among the wide range of patient population for over 5 years in the US, and for over 20 years in other countries in physical therapy, orthopedics, outpatient clinics and elite athletics, where MR4 Laser is the “equipment of choice” for numerous national, professional and collegiate athletes and teams worldwide.
