With One Remarkable Tool, We Can Work Wonders to Help Relieve Pain, Inflammation & More.
At the Center of Medical Arts, we have harnessed the power of a small but powerful laser therapy tool called the MicroLight 830 low-level laser.
Arriving first on the scene in 2002 following FDA Approval, we have since help literally hundreds of patients find relief from these and other ailments:
- Old or new sports injuries or accident
- Burns & sores
- Repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome
- Lower back pain
- Migraine headaches
- Skin ulcers, bed or other pressure sores
- Scarring from a recent surgery
- Herpes simplex (cold sores)
- Tennis & golfers’ elbow
- Many other aches, pains and conditions that pain relief medication can’t conquer
Low-Level Laser Therapy Succeeds Where Other Treatments Fail.
Light has been used for healing for many centuries, starting with the Greeks and Romans who recognized the positive effects of sunlight. We know that when sunlight strikes the skin, our whole body feels the benefits. Even our brain is affected by sunlight. As scientists have understood more about the nature of light and its positive effects on the body, they have been able to develop techniques and devices that use light as part of the healing process.
The History of Laser Therapy
The word “laser” is an acronym for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. The theory was first described by Albert Einstein (1879-1955) who paved the way for the development of the therapeutic laser. The first low-level therapeutic laser was developed in 1962. By the end of the 1960’s, Endre Mester in Hungary was reporting an improved healing of wounds through low-level laser radiation. Since then, scientists and doctors around the world have been using laser light to treat conditions that can affect all age groups.
What Is Low Level Laser Light?
Low-level laser light is compressed light of a wavelength from the cold, red part of the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation. It is different from natural light in that it is one precise color; it is coherent (it travels in a straight line), monochromatic (a single wavelength) and polarized (it concentrates its beam in a defined location or spot). These properties allow laser light to penetrate the surface of the skin with no heating effect, no damage to the skin and no known side effects. Rather, laser light directs biostimulative light energy to the body’s cells which the cells then convert into chemical energy to promote natural healing and pain relief.
What Is Low Level Laser Therapy?
Low-level therapy uses cold (subthermal) laser light energy to direct bio-stimulative light energy to the body’s cells without injuring or damaging them in any way. The therapy is precise and accurate; and offers safe and effective treatment for a wide variety of conditions.
- Relieves acute and chronic pain
- Increases the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair
- Increases blood supply
- Stimulates the immune system
- Stimulates nerve function
- Develops collagen and muscle tissue
- Helps generate new and healthy cells and tissue
- Promotes faster wound healing and clot formation
- Reduces inflammation
Low-level laser therapy does not require constant, ongoing treatments, as is often required with traditional chiropractic or physiotherapeutic remedies.
Is low-level laser therapy for you?
It is if you suffer from any of the conditions mentioned above.
Equally important, the portable nature of the Microlight 830 allows us to provide in-home or in-office care…as well as our facilities, of course.
In our experience, we have had very few patients who have not received benefit from the Low Level Laser Therapy…conversely, numerous patients have received truly outstanding help for conditions that had previously defied all other therapies.
