Deep Tissue Laser Therapy -- Why choose laser?

The Facts

Scientific testing has shown that Deep Tissue Laser Therapy (DTLT) reduces pain and inflammation naturally, safely, and painlessly. Drug therapies and surgeries are often very costly, and can result in unwanted or even dangerous complications and side effects. DTLT, however, allows for healing that is:

  • Surgery free
  • Drug free 
  • Fast acting

DTLT penetrates deep into the body's tissues quickly and painlessly in order to stimulate healing of damaged cells. Treatments can be administered in as little as 4-10 minutes, and many patients find relief within just a few sessions. Additionally, this type of laser therapy is FDA-approved and endorsed by many professional medical organizations, including the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).

Rollette Chiropractic Center utilizes a Class IV Lightforce EX laser to conduct DTLT.  

The Science

More than 2,000 clinical studies conducted on Deep Tissue Laser Therapy (DTLT) over the last 30 years have demonstrated its safety and effectiveness.  DTLT stimulates healing through a photochemical response called photobiomodulation. When the photon energy generated by the laser penetrates the body's tissues, cells produce more ATP (cellular energy). This process enables compromised cells to function more efficiently, thus enabling these cells to heal themselves.

Interestingly, damaged cells show a significantly stronger response to DTLT than healthy cells. The upshot is that the light from the laser will do the most good where it is most needed.

The following are some of the conditions that DTLT has proved to be effective in treating:

  • Cervical pain
  • Joint pain
  • Sciatica
  • Muscle spasm
  • Muscle strain
  • Low back pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Tendinitis

The Basics

Each initial laser therapy session will be offered at no cost. This rule applies to current and new patients alike. By offering a complimentary session at the outset of treatment, we are better able to assess who might be a candidate for DTLT without placing an undue burden on the patient.

After the first session, laser packages offer both the best value and the greatest chance for treatment success. Laser packages are sold in groups of six (6) treatments. Once a patient has completed a package, he or she will be offered a special maintenance rate of $50 per session for each treatment that follows.
