Laser Treatment NEW at TheraMAX

Phototherapy is a physical treatment modality using Superluminous Diode (SLD) and Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) to emit photons (light) in very specific regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Photons of near infrared and visible red penetrate the skin stimulating a cascade of clinical benefits.

The non-invasive, Low Level Laser Energy creates biological changes at the cellular level. Light energy is absorbed by mitochondria and cell membranes and converted into biological energy. This process induces increased tissue healing, an accelerated inflammatory process and an enhanced immune response.

The coherent focused Low Level Laser energy penetrates deeply to stimulate the target tissue while the Superluminous Diodes delivers a broader beam producing evenly distributed visible red and infrared energy over a much larger area.

This recruitment of larger tissue area enhances the healing process, resulting in improved overall function. Patients will gain tissue mobility, have reduced pain associated with muscle and joint dysfunction, and notice improved healing of both acute and chronic conditions.

Some of the many conditions which have been successfully treated with laser include Athletic Injuries, Cervical, Thoracic and Lumbosacral pain and dysfunction, Headache, Temporo-Mandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ), Sinusitis, Shoulder, Elbow and Hand pain, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Hip, Knee and Ankle pain, Achilles Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis and skin wounds.

Hard Core Strength

Over the past 10 to 15 years, ‘core stability’ has become synonymous with abdominal strength. The fact of the matter is that the abdominal muscles are given too much credit when it comes to real core strength. The abdominals posses a limited and specific action. Actually, the ‘core’ consists of several muscles that run the length of the trunk and torso stabilizing the spine, pelvis and shoulders. When engaged, they provide a stable foundation for both arm and leg functional mobility allowing us to generate powerful movements through our extremities. Core strengthening exercises are an important part of overall fitness training that, except for the occasional sit up or crunch, are often neglected.
