At Penn Chiropractic Centre in Jackson, we supplement our chiropractic care and treatment with deep tissue laser therapy. The practice of chiropractic care has evolved beyond spinal adjustments. This is especially true in the context of technological innovation. One such health and wellness innovation is laser therapy, particularly deep tissue laser therapy.
What is Deep Tissue Laser Therapy?
Dr. Penn runs a small instrument that focuses light across the patient's skin. That light triggers a biological process deep below the surface called photobiomodulation. Energy from the light results in increased metabolic activity that decreases inflammation reduces pain and promotes healing. The process does not involve surgery, it is painless, and was cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration nearly 20 years ago.
The Benefits of Deep Tissue Laser Therapy
This therapy helps reduce inflammation as quickly as possible to start the body's natural healing process. Reducing inflammation also improves a patient's range of motion. Here are some of the other benefits of deep tissue laser therapy:
- Pain reduction and elimination
- Improvement of nerve conduction
- Removal of waste from the injured tissue
- Enhanced flow of rehabilitative agents
