Treatments will vary depending on the location and severity of your injury. Based on your evaluation, the doctor will develop a customized treatment specific to your desired outcomes. The Thor Laser is pain-free, there is no down time and the treatments range anywhere from 10-30 minutes, based on your treatment plan.
At the cellular level, with an injury the mitochondria responds by dishing out loads of inflammatory chemicals that subsequently block the Cytochrome C subunit which is necessary for the production of ATP, otherwise known as cellular energy. The end result is an increase in oxidative stress to the tissue resulting in cellular death and decreased tissue regeneration.
Long Story Short: Inflammation slows the healing process.
Laser Therapy is NON-INVASIVE with absolutely zero risk.
Low Level Laser Therapy when applied properly “knocks off” the inflammatory chemicals from the Cytochrome C subunit which allows for oxygen back in. The end result: Increased cellular metabolism allowing for TISSUE TO HEAL QUICKER getting the athlete back into the game quicker and stronger.
Long Story Short: Laser will decrease the healing time by 60%. Thats a good thing!
We use the laser systems made by Thor Lasers out of England. About 95% of all lasers sold piggy back of the science generated by Thor Lasers and their research partnerships (which includes the Wellman Photomedicine Research Facility at Harvard Medical School). However, the same 95% of laser systems do not have proper technology to achieve desired results.
We utilize the Thor Laser systems. We have a small unit that is useful in treating small areas as well as a FULL BODY SYSTEM that will help the entire body heal quicker as well as increase muscular endurance and strength.
Dr. Simpson being a former Division I conference champion sprinter at Colorado State University. After realizing the downfalls of modern training room processes and limitations, even in professional settings, Dr. Simpson started his passion in sports medicine, wanting to find the latest in tissue healing and rehab modalities. This ultimately lead him to utilize laser therapy.
