Only the living body has the power to heal itself. The innate wisdom of your body metabolizes food and produces energy to sustain life and regenerates living breathing cells to repair the damage we do to ourselves from daily life. Laser therapy utilizes specific frequencies of laser light, which has been scientifically proven to increase blood supply and stimulate our bodies cells to produce more energy for healing and regeneration. At the same time, this increased energy allows the cells and tissues to remove toxins that accumulate and interfere with the healing process. This maximizes and accelerates recovery allowing the body to expedite the healing process as well as reducing inflamation.
Laser therapy also accelerates wound healing from trauma or surgery, and greatly aids in reducing swelling.Laser therapy is utilized, not only to aid in the healing and recovery of your bodies tissues directly, but is proven to be very useful in modulating the bodies response to pain neurologically. Recent research has demonstrated that application of laser therapy to specific structres in the nervous system such as the dorsal nerve root ganglia results in a decreased pain sensation. This is extremely beneficial in cases of neuropathic pain. This includes pain syndromes such as fibromyalgia or phantom limb syndrome where there is no real observable pathology in the tissue directly.
Myotherapy is a broad based term which includes various types of manual therapy that is employed to restore imbalances in the muscular system. These include deep tissue stimulation, trigger point therapy, and a special therapist assisted stretching called PNF technique. These modalities may be employed even prior to the presence of any pain or symptoms and result in the overall increase in productivity and performance. It is able to achieve this through a reduction of pain and improvement of range of motion. Many athletes receive myotherapy and insist that it allows them to perform at a stronger and more coordinated optimal level.
Myotherapy is often employed to relieve musculoskeletal pain or stiffness and soreness in muscles or joints. It is especially effective in conditions such as a headaches due to a tight and stiff neck, upper back tightness, sore shoulders, or leg pain and stiffness which may include sciatica.
