Laser Therapy for Pain
Aspen Laser Therapy
What Is Aspen Laser Therapy?
You most likely didn’t know this, but laser is an acronym for “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.” Low-level laser therapy has been used in medicine since the 1960s. Aspen laser therapy improves upon the concept, as it is a form of high-intensity laser therapy. Aspen laser therapy represents class 4 laser technology and provides power levels 1,200 times more powerful than classes 1, 2, and 3 low level laser therapy. As a result, it delivers significantly higher dosage levels with the ability to penetrate the deepest levels of the skin and tissues to reach damaged cells. After absorbing the laser’s light energy (mostly in the form of photons), the cell’s metabolism is boosted, producing energy that stimulates cell/tissue repair to re-establish a normal, healthy state.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Aspen Laser Therapy, and What Is It Used to Treat?
What Are the Advantages of the Procedure, and Are There Any Side Effects?
There are many advantages to laser therapy, which has been used for more than 30 years throughout the medical world. The most evident advantage of laser treatment is that it does not require the use of drugs or surgery, and produces quick results. Laser therapy also treats the root cause of pain and injury by enhancing the body’s natural healing processes, while other products temporarily treat or mask symptoms.
Another advantage of laser therapy is that it is completely free of side effects and pain. There is absolutely no chance of burning skin or damaging tissue. Laser treatment can even be used over medical/surgical implants or metal. Because the human eye absorbs light, specially designed protective safety eyewear is required to be worn by both the patient and healthcare professional administering the laser therapy.
