Chiropractic Billings MT Infrared Laser Therapy

Looking to heal through Laser Therapy in Billings MT? Introducing therapeutic light into the body activates the body's own natural healing systems to relieve pain, increase joint mobility, increase tissue integrity, and promote cell regeneration.

How Laser Therapy Works in Billings MT

  • Laser light is delivered at a wavelength of 980nm which effectively penetrates the tissues to deliver energy to the cells to help them regain their proper function.
  • Photons, which are light particles, penetrate the tissue and stimulate photosensitive compounds in the cells’ mitochondria, known as chromophores. This in turn releases nitric oxide for vasodilation and increases the rate of ATP production, the cells’ fuel source.
  • Nitric oxide’s ability to dilate blood vessels allows nutrients and oxygenated blood access to damaged tissues. In turn, it helps remove stagnant fluids to decrease pain, reduce inflammation, and promote faster healing times.

About the Treatments

Treatment time will vary between 7 and 15 minutes. The typical number of treatments required varies between 6 and 12 depending on the body's natural healing rate and the severity of the condition.

What does it feel like to get a treatment?

Most patients describe it as a very soothing, warm sensation. Since the epoch-980 is a high-powered therapy laser, your skin will get warm during the treatment. Many patients feel a significant reduction in pain on the first visit. Occasionally, patients will feel slightly more pain immediately after the treatment- and then feel much better the next day.

How will I feel after the treatment?

You may feel pain relief after just the first treatment. For other patients, it takes a while longer. Most patients report feeling very relaxed, or even tired. If you feel a lot less pain, keep in mind that pain reduction is just one goal. The laser is giving your cells more energy, so they repair and regenerate new tissues. The effect of laser therapy treatments is cumulative. You will be getting more benefits with successive treatments.

Do I have to wear safety glasses during my laser treatments?

Yes. In the human body, the eye is the most sensitive to light. When the eye is exposed to a laser beam, the lens in the eye focuses the beam into a tiny spot. This can actually burn the retina of the eye. The safety glasses you wear specifically block out the wavelengths of light produced by the epoch-980 therapeutic laser.

What do I need to do after treatment?

Rest! And be gentle with the area that was treated. For example, you may feel significantly better and think you are all clear to return to your normal activity of running, or tennis, etc. However, it is very important to go easy and give your body time to heal and resume normal activity only when directed by your doctor.

Alternatively, you may feel a little more sore over the next 24 hours. This can happen to some people from the effects of vasodilation, which means your blood and lymphatic vessels have a larger diameter. This helps reduce inflammation, but vasodilation can also make you more sore. Again, be gentle with the area that was treated. After 24 hours you typically feel better than you did prior to the treatment.
