The concept that light energy from a laser can reduce inflammation and pain, hasten healing in damaged tissues, relax muscles, and stimulate nerve regeneration appears far fetched. Science, however, tells us these effects do happen.
“Power and wavelength ascertain the capability of the laser to penetrate into the body. Once you are in the infrared spectrum and above 800 nanometers in wavelength, laser energy penetrates like X-rays, but to attain depth you need substantial electricity or energy,” Dr. Bruce Coren told Spine Universe.
From chiropractic care to surgery, there are a variety of treatments available to treat symptoms of back pain, each more effective than others depending on the specific issue. Laser therapy can help reduce pain and inflammation faster, healing damaged tissues. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
