Deep Tissue Laser Therapy at Twin Lakes Chiropractic in Federal Way, WA.

Deep Tissue Laser Therapy

Deep tissue laser is a treatment that uses high-powered class IV lasers to deliver deep-penetrating healing red and near-infrared light inside the body, promoting musculoskeletal tissue healing. Laser therapy uses a process known as photobiomodulation (PBMT), in which light triggers a cascade of biological events to increase cellular metabolism and decrease pain and inflammation. Deep tissue laser therapy stimulates tissue healing where other treatments cannot reach without invasive surgery or the use of dangerous opiod drugs.

The Role of Wavelength in Deep Tissue Laser Therapy

Medical professionals discuss light wavelengths in terms of nanometers (nm), a unit of measurement that equal one thousand millionths of a meter. The human eye can detect wavelengths of 380 to 780 nanometers, with light wavelengths of 450-485nm appearing blue and wavelengths of 625-700nm appearing red.

The lasers used in laser therapy have higher wavelengths that the human eye cannot see, and each wavelength can provide a different therapeutic effect. Laser therapy systems typically involved the use of three specific wavelengths:

  • 810nm wavelength: Stimulates the delivery of oxygen to red blood cells, which helps muscles and tendons regenerate.
  • 980nm wavelengths: Eases pain, improves circulation and enhances muscle relaxation.
  • 1064nm wavelength: Penetrates tissue deep inside the body to activate metabolic process in deeper tissue.

Biological Effects of Deep Tissue Laser Therapy

Deep tissue laser therapy offers a variety of beneficial biological effects, from boosting energy inside the cells to promoting healing of tissues deep within the body. Medical Practitioners may suggest deep tissue therapy for the treatment of:

  • Muscle strains
  • Ligament sprains
  • Tendonitis
  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Neck pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Knee pain
  • Pain from muscle spasms
  • Neuropathy
Exposure to specific light wavelengths stimulators chemical reactions in the body. Specifically, photobiomodulation therapy excites the mitochondria, known as the “powerhouse” of the cell. Mitochondria use oxygen to turn nutrients into chemical energy that the cell uses to function. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) transports this energy around the cell. Mitochondria also make ATP, so stimulating mitochondria with light promotes the production of energy and ATP within the treated cells, which helps improve the function and healing of those cells.
