Laser Therapy For San Diego & Del Mar
Acacia Wellness Center Offers High Power Laser Therapy Treating Pain
Acacia Wellness Center, located in Solana Beach is one of only a handful of San Diego area clinics using the Class IV K-Laser. The K-Laser employs a high power heat laser in protocols designed to reduce and relieve pain as well as encourage tissue regeneration and healing. The K-Laser which provides High Power Laser Therapy (HPLT) offers relief of pain from a variety of conditions, including tendonitis, bursitis, nerve pain, plantar fascitis, arthritis pain, TMJ….and much more.
Laser Therapy For Pain
The primary biological action of the K-Laser results from stimulation of cellular transport mechanisms in the mitochondria, cell membranes and epithelial tissues. This action causes the release of vasodilating chemicals, the stimulation of DNA and RNA synthesis, an increase in enzyme production, an increase of superoxide dismutase activity, normalization of tissue pH, and increased ATP production. The increase of vasodilatation (blood supply) and improved microcirculation will increase the supply of cellular nutrition promoting tissue repair and remodeling. Significant reduction in edema (swelling) has been noted as well as tissues are better able to move fluids out through lymphatic drainage pathways.
Treatment for pain is performed by the doctor or technician by placing the laser in contact with the skin allowing the photon energy to penetrate tissue, where it interacts with various intracellular bio molecules resulting in the restoration of normal cell function. This enhances the body’s natural healing processes and essentially speeds the process. Using the K-laser, light energy is converted into biochemical energy, this is known as photobiomodulation. The process results in a disappearance of symptoms and increases the speed at which your body heals. Additionally, the immune system response is stimulated, Lymphatic drainage is improved, production of growth hormone is increased, and the body’s natural healing processes are enhanced.
The Physiological Effects of Laser Therapy:
- Biostimulation including improved metabolism & increased cell metabolism
- Improved blood circulation and vasodilatation
- Analgesic effect
- Anti-inflammatory and anti- edematous effects
- Stimulation of wound healing
- Relieves acute and chronic pains
- Increases the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair
- Increases blood supply
- Stimulates the immune system
- Stimulates nerve function
- Develops collagen and muscle tissue
- Helps generate new and healthy cells and tissue
- Promotes faster wound healing and clot formation
- Reduces inflammation
The Biochemical Effects of Laser Therapy
- Releases Nitric Oxide
- Increase ATP Production
- Increase Fibroblast Migration
- Increase Macrophage activity
- Increase Keratinocyte activity
- Increase RNA DNA Synthesis
- Increase EnzymeProduction
- Increase SOD Production
One key of the K-Laser is its increased power of a maximum of 15 watts at the Super-Pulse setting. This allows for greatly increased therapeutic dosing of laser light and significantly greater depth of penetration into target tissue, with reduced treatment times as short as 5-15 minutes. With no pain, discomfort or side effects.
