Laser Therapy in Myrtle Beach and Pawleys Island
Degenerative disease, chronic pain, and severe injuries cause more than pain upon impact. Over the days, weeks, and years to come, your life will change in many ways. Your mobility becomes limited, which means you don’t engage in much (if any) physical activity. You may not travel anymore or participate in some hobbies. Sleeping becomes difficult, further complicating your life.
At this point, you may have strongly considered prescription painkillers or surgery to get back to the life you once lived. There is another way though, and it’s known as K-Laser therapy.
What is K-Laser Therapy? The Secret Lies in Light Energy
Our lead chiropractor, Dr. Neil Fico, offers K-Laser therapy, which uses light energy for pain relief and healing. These lasers are Class IV, which is the top of the class. K-Lasers can go more deeply, reaching the body’s tissues for a true change in pain levels.
How does this happen? Light has various wavelengths that can promote the tissue to heal. By targeting those wavelengths with the K-Laser, light travels more deeply. It will reach down to the cell’s membrane.
This triggers photo-biostimulation, which may be able to reverse damage to the injured or damaged tissue. There will be more collagen and endorphins to the area (for less pain) and more regeneration, or healing.
What Kinds of Results May You Expect? And in How Long?
With regular K-Laser therapy from Dr. Fico, you’ll finally have a reliable, non-surgical means of pain relief. Within a few appointments, you should notice fewer muscle spasms, less swelling and stiffness, and less pain. Sometimes it only takes a single appointment for these effects to take place, although results vary by patient.
Once your chiropractor decides to end your laser therapy, you should have less pain and more mobility. This allows you to get back to the activities and hobbies that once enriched your life and enjoy these again without pain.
The Promotion of Healing by Laser Therapy in Myrtle Beach and Pawleys Island
There is nothing to fear about laser therapy. It does not hurt, requires little if any recovery time, and has few if any side effects. The laser tends to feel warm according to some patients. It never burns, even if it’s placed in one spot for minutes at a time, which sometimes does happen (up to nine minutes at a time for severely damaged areas).
The laser itself comes out of a device the chiropractor holds, not some big, heavy machinery. That should also contribute to your peace of mind about the K-Laser treatment.
