Low Level Laser Therapy

This revolutionary therapy is called low level laser therapy. At Bryant Family Chiropractic we are one of only a handful of providers in the state using a class IV laser called the K-Laser.

How does it work?

Certain wavelengths of light are able to penetrate the skin. Once the light energy passes through the layers of skin and reaches the target area, it is absorbed and interacts with the light sensitive elements in the cell. This process can be compared to photosynthesis in plants. Sunlight is absorbed by plants, which is then converted to usable energy so that the plant can grow.

When cells absorb this light energy, it initiates a series of events in the cell that is theorized to eventually result in normalizing damaged or injured tissue, a reduction in pain, inflammation, edema and an overall reduction in healing time by increasing intracellular metabolism. For more information you can visit the K-laser website.

    This sounds like a life saver. I would like to wake up one morning and not have any joint pain. It's daily thing for me.
