On the cutting edge of technology in the field of health and wellness, Dr. John Smothers at the Integrative Wellness and Research Center employs Class IV Laser Therapy, harnessing the power of light to relieve pain, speed up healing, and reduce inflammation.

A Deeper Look into Laser Therapy

Laser therapy involves using light energy to stimulate cellular activity in the body, a process known as photobiomodulation. When the laser is applied to the skin, photons penetrate deep into tissues and are absorbed by the mitochondria, the energy-producing part of our cells. This energy fuels essential physiological responses, restoring normal cell function and structure. This non-invasive therapy has demonstrated remarkable results in treating various medical conditions.

How Does Laser Therapy Work?

The central goal of laser therapy is to stimulate cells to perform their natural functions at an enhanced rate. Unlike “Cold lasers” that provide no sensation, high-power diode laser therapy offers a warm and soothing feeling during treatment.

Laser therapy primarily targets hemoglobin and cytochrome c oxidase, enhancing respiration and overall performance. It focuses on activating the body’s natural responses to promote healing and long-lasting benefits. Instead of masking symptoms, laser therapy treats the underlying condition or pathology, addressing the root cause of health issues.

“We believe in a non-toxic process. Therapies are non-toxic; no undesirable side effects,” Dr. John says, “We have very unique lab testing that helps us uncover the root cause of health imbalances and disease.”

Conditions That May Benefit from Laser Therapy

Laser therapy offers hope for individuals dealing with a range of health problems, including musculoskeletal issues, arthritis, sports injuries, post-surgical wounds, diabetic ulcers, and dermatological conditions. The list of conditions that may respond to laser therapy is extensive:

      • Inflammatory conditions
      • Connective tissue injuries/disorders
      • Muscle injuries/disorders
      • Joint injuries/disorders
      • Neurological injuries/disorders
      • Skin injuries/conditions

Laser therapy’s benefits are multifaceted, including anti-inflammation, pain relief, accelerated tissue repair, improved vascular activity, increased metabolic activity, and the stimulation of trigger points and acupuncture points.

This revolutionary therapy’s biological effects range from reducing swelling and pain to increasing cellular energy levels, accelerating healing, and promoting improved cellular health. The treatment focuses on the cells that need it and does not affect normal tissues.
