We are very excited here at Newland Chiropractic & Neurology Centre to let you know we have now invested in state of the art Low Level Laser Therapy devices to help speed up your healing process.
Low level laser therapy (LLLT ) or cold laser, is a painless, sterile, non-invasive, drug-free modality that is used for a variety of conditions such as, acute and chronic pain, body-contouring, acne and appearance of cellulite.
Housed within the mitochondria, the cell energy manufacturer, are receptors capable of absorbing distinct parameters of light. Think of these receptors like any drug receptors. When we consume a prescription medication, the compound is absorbed by the body and it locates a particular receptor; based upon its molecular design, will bind to that receptor. Once the drug binds, a secondary reaction inside the cell takes place. A similar mechanism is observed when exposing the body to a particular colour of light. During a laser treatment, the light will penetrate the skin and is absorbed by this receptor within the mitochondria. Receptor stimulation with light promotes energy production, biochemical reactions, protein and growth factor synthesis, cell growth and proliferation and enhanced blood and oxygen flow. Nothing Heals Faster®
The Erchonia lasers that we use in clinic use low-level laser therapy (LLLT) to alter cellular functions and provide noticeable pain relief. Similar to photosynthesis in plants, LLLT has a photochemical effect that naturally re-duces oxidative stress and increases the production of ATP. The powers of this innovative technology can be used to target numerous painful conditions that we see daily which in return speeds up the healing process.
