What to Expect from Laser Therapy

How Long Treatment Takes

Acute injuries may take an average of six to eight treatments and chronic injuries can take twelve or more treatments. After four visits, we’ll evaluate your results and readjust the treatment schedule as necessary.

When you arrive, we’ll ensure your paperwork is complete before you meet with Dr. Hanopole for a consultation. He’ll do an examination of the area of your complaint to determine if you’re a good candidate for deep tissue laser therapy.

Quick, Effective Care

When receiving high-power deep tissue laser therapy, you’ll feel a gentle warm sensation and possibly a mild tingling. With no known side effects, you can leave Active Life Chiropractic & Wellness focused on enjoying your life. We value your time and run our office as smoothly as possible. We’ll make your visits as efficient as possible and try to keep them under 15 minutes.

10 Proven Clinical Benefits of Laser Therapy

  • Anti-Inflammation: Laser therapy dilates the blood vessels, which decreases blood pressure, as well as activating the lymphatic drainage system which drains swollen areas. As a result, there is a reduction in swelling caused by bruising or inflammation.
  • Anti-Pain: Laser therapy has a high beneficial effect on nerve cells which block pain transmitted by these cells to the brain and which decreases nerve sensitivity. Also, due to less inflammation, there is less edema and less pain.
  • Accelerated Tissue Repair & Cell Growth: Photons of light from lasers penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. The laser light increases the energy available to the cell so that the cell can take on nutrients faster and get rid of waste products.
  • Trigger Points & Acupuncture Points: Laser therapy stimulates muscle trigger points and acupuncture points on a non-invasive basis providing musculoskeletal pain relief.
  • Increased Metabolic Activity: Laser therapy creates higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells.
  • Reduced Scar Tissue Formation: Laser Therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns or surgery.
  • Improved Vascular Activity: Laser light will significantly increase the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue that speeds up the healing process, closes wounds quickly and reduces scar tissue.
  • Improved Nerve Function: Slow recovery of nerve functions in damaged tissue can result in numbness and impaired limbs. Laser light will speed up the regeneration & reconnection process and optimize muscle action.
  • Immunoregulation: Laser light has a direct effect on immunity status by stimulation of immunoglobulins and lymphocytes. Laser Therapy is absorbed by molecule enzymes that react to laser light. The enzyme flavomono-nucleotide is activated and starts the production of ATP (adenosine-triphosphate), which is the major carrier of cell energy and the energy source for all chemical reactions in the cells.
  • Faster Wound Healing: Laser light stimulates collagen production in damaged tissue. Collagen is the essential protein required to replace old tissue or to repair tissue injuries.
