Lasers are now the most widely used medical tool in many practices.
Pilot Diode Laser
The Pilot Diode Laser increases blood circulation to muscles, joints and other areas of the body to allow patients to heal safely and more quickly with less pain and inflammation.
The Pilot Diode Laser creates an intense beam of light energy that moves through a fiber-optic cord. When it enters the targeted tissue, the energy is converted into heat. This heat is responsible for increased blood flow to the location treated to reduce pain and inflammation. Benefits from using the Pilot Diode Laser For many rehabilitation procedures, the Pilot Diode Laser is a versatile tool. Its technology gently increases cellular energy that accelerates the body’s self-healing capabilities, allowing you to heal safely and quickly. Laser light is able to penetrate deeper into the tissue than from other sources. Thus deeper tissues benefit from the direct generation of heat from the laser light, rather than relying on transmission of heat through the surface tissues down to the deep tissue. Some of the benefits include:
- Reduction in recovery time
- Reduction of inflammation
- Directly treats muscle related problems
- No medication
- Ultimately it improves your quality of life!
The Pilot Diode Laser is ideal in delivering powerful laser energy to treatment areas, greatly improving the healing process and offering advanced laser treatment. You will quickly benefit from a therapist using the Pilot Diode Laser. Here is just a brief sample of the procedures that your therapist can use the Pilot Diode Laser for:
- Carpal Tunnel
- Chronic Pain Syndromes (neck, back, knee, etc)
- Sports Injuries
- And so many more…
A typical number of treatments will vary greatly from patient to patient. The number of treatment will greatly depend on the location and the severity of the injury. Some conditions may only require a couple of visits, while others could use the Pilot Diode Laser on an ongoing basis for long periods of time. Typically the first few treatments are spaced a few days apart for the first couple of weeks. After this if you are still having pain, please consult with your therapist about scheduling your visits.
Treatments usually will take anywhere from 5 – 20 minutes and depend on the condition being treated, size of the area and depth of the condition. During the treatment there should not be any discomfort. You should feel a warm soothing sensation.
Where on the body can the Pilot Diode Laser be used?
The Pilot Diode Laser is used on muscles and joints. From knuckles to knees and from hips to hands, the Pilot Diode Laser reduces the pain, inflammation and soreness anywhere on the body.
