HIGH DOSE LASER THERAPY
Effective | Non-Surgical | Drug-Free | Pain-Free
Healing at the Speed of Light
At Olympic Spine & Sports Therapy, high dose laser therapy is one more powerful tools for reducing pain and accelerating repair. The effects of light on cellular function have been known since 1880. However, the clinical benefits of laser energy were only discovered in 1967. Since its FDA approval in 2001, cold laser therapy is quickly gaining popularity in the United States. High dose means that the laser is powerful enough to penetrate deep to reach the source of your pain. Our Diowave lasers are state-of-the-art with 30 Watts providing up to 3 inches of penetration. Not only does high-dose laser rapidly reduce pain, but it actually speeds the regeneration of damaged tissue.

More About Laser Therapy
How Does High-Dose Laser Therapy Work?
Clinical studies and research using laser therapy have demonstrated reduced pain and inflammation as well as stimulated nerve regeneration, muscle relaxation and improved immune system response.
Our body can benefit from absorbing certain frequencies and wavelengths of light similar to the way plants benefit from sunlight and use it to grow.
Our bodies absorb near infrared light and convert it into ATP. When we are exposed to laser light at the appropriate wavelength and frequency, we produce ATP. ATP is the “energy currency” of the cell, so higher levels lead to an increase in cellular health and an increased rate of repair.
High-dose laser therapy is a powerful weapon in our arsenal to combat neuropathy and rehabilitate the nerve endings.
- Improved metabolism
- Increase of cell metabolism
- Improved blood circulation and vasodilation
- Analgesic effect
- Anti-inflammatory and anti-edematous effects
- Stimulation of wound healing
How Does High-Dose Laser Therapy Benefit Users?
- Relieves acute and chronic pain
- Increases the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair
- Increases blood supply
- Stimulates the immune system
- Stimulates nerve function
- Develops collagen and muscle tissue
- Helps generate new and healthy cells and tissue
- Promotes faster wound healing and clot formation
- Reduces inflammation
Studies for soft tissue injuries (muscle, ligament and joint) show that patients who receive laser therapy in addition to other treatments demonstrate a 40-50 percent faster rate of repair and greater strength of the injured area when treatment is completed. High-dose laser therapy is a safe and effective modality that complements the physical medicine procedures used at Olympic Spine & Sports Therapy. The evidence is compelling. High-dose laser therapy is destined to play an important role in the future of health care.
