Having chronic pain can be physically and mentally debilitating.

Most of the time, drugs and anti-inflammatory medications only serve to mask the issue, rather than to correct it. There is a different treatment approach which can greatly decrease the pain and symptoms associated with a variety of ailments, while increasing the quality of life.

High Intensity Laser Therapy at Innovative Health is an FDA-cleared, drug-free, non-invasive therapy available to our patients in Weston, Wausau, and beyond.

It’s called High-Intensity Laser Therapy, and it has already seen an 80 percent success rate in improving function and significantly reducing symptoms in our patients.

Are you ready to learn more? Great. Let’s take a look at the features and benefits of High-Intensity Laser Therapy.

What It Does

High-Intensity Laser Therapy refers to a Class 4 therapeutic laser — standing for “Light Amplification By Stimulated Emission Of Radiation” — which penetrates muscle, tissue, and bones in order to promote healing and regeneration from within the cells themselves.

Simply put, this beam of radiant light is able to speed up the healing process by turning light energy into regenerative energy for DNA much in the same way that photosynthesis turns light energy into chemical energy for plants.

Don’t let the “high-intensity” part scare you, either; that simply refers to the strength of the laser. The Class 4 lasers we have at Innovative Health are able to penetrate deeper, therefore treating the surrounding tissues more effectively for longer-lasting effects.

How It Works

The process is really quite simple.

Your local chiropractor at Innovative Health will work with you to identify the area which requires treatment, such as a strained muscle or arthritic knee joint.

Then, they will develop a treatment program specific to your condition. It is important to know that a series to treatments are necessary in order to achieve positive results, with each session building upon one another.

Laser therapy sessions generally last 15-20 minutes during which time the laser light is directed toward the affected area. Typically peoplef ind the sessions to be very relaxing and liken the sensation to that of “a warm beam sunshine” shining on the body.

The Benefits

The benefits of High-Intensity Laser Therapy are far-reaching. HILT has been known to help with a variety of ailments, including:

  • Sports Injuries
  • Trigger Points
  • Sprains and Strains
  • Herniated Disc
  • Cervical Pain

In addition to healing the body at the cellular level, other biological effects of laser therapy include: reducing pain, minimizing swelling, softening scar tissue, improving blood flow and nerve function, and even resetting the chronic pain cycle.
