Fibromyalgia Treatment and Deep Tissue Laser

Deep Tissue Laser in SF

Deep Tissue Laser Therapy in San Francisco

We have been providing natural treatment for Fibromyalgia (FM) in San Francisco for over 20 years.  During this time we have found that  FM patients often respond favorably to a combination of chiropractic adjustments, plant based nutrition, low tech spinal exercises, and now deep tissue laser therapy.

The machine we use at our clinic is the LiteCure LCT-1000. Here is an excerpt from our website that describes the benefits of deep tissue laser for musculoskeletal conditions such as Fibromyalgia:

Deep Tissue Laser Therapy™ with the LiteCure LCT-1000 is an innovative, scientifically based, therapeutic modality, specifically designed to offer advanced pain relief and expedited healing times through a process known as photobiostimulation.

The LCT-1000 works by flooding tissues with photons, energizing the damaged cells and increasing circulation to the painful area. This produces a cascade of healing responses in your body, rapidly reducing inflammation, thereby reducing or even eliminating your pain.

Hip Pain: A Laser Therapy Patient Success Story

Clarise is our San Francisco Chiropractor “Patient of the Week”.  Clarise has been feeling right hip pain and tightness her whole life.
She had surgery to correct a congenital superior femur problem. Her
response post-surgery has been good, however she has developed bone
spurs on her right femur which irritates her right ITB, causing a lot of
pain in her hip when she goes out to ride her bike and walk her dogs.
We began treating Clarise with our Deep Tissue Laser Therapy, and after
5 treatments, she no longer noticed her hip pain! Last week she biked
45 minutes to the gym, then went and swam for an additional 20 minutes
with no pain! We are thrilled to have been able to assist Clarise to
getting back to biking pain-free again!

What Does “Deep Tissue Laser Therapy” Do?

Deep Tissue Laser San FranciscoWe have been providing Class IV Deep Tissue Laser Therapy in San Francisco for about 5 years now. Prior to this we used various versions of the less powerful hot and cold lasers. The laser we use now is the LiteCure Deep Tissue Laser.

So what’s the difference between the older cold lasers and a Class IV Deep Tissue Laser? 

Well, the Class IV laser is much more powerful. It can get you where you want to go a lot quicker. The older lasers are like a single engine prop plane and the new Class IV Deep Tissue Lasers are like a Lear Jet. If you want to get from San Francisco to New York City in the shortest amount of time you take the Lear Jet.

What exactly does deep tissue laser therapy do anyway?

OK…lets go back in time to your Biology class in High School. Do you remember the word PHOTOSYNTHESIS? This is the word that describes the way living plants and organisms
respond to light. Photo means “light”. Well…living cells and tissues
respond to light the same way. Laser is to damaged tissue cells like
sunlight is to a plant in a dark room needing repair.

Basically…”Light is Life”.

Deep Tissue Laser Therapy is able to deliver “light energy” deep into the tissues of the body. And get this…The laser light goes where it is needed most. Damaged cells are magnets for laser light energy.

The laser light sets into motion a cascade of chemical reactions that speed up the healing process resulting in reduction of inflammation, swelling, loss of funtion and pain.

Some of the conditions that we have had great success with at our clinic are Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Plantar Fasciitis, Shoulder and Elbow Pain, TMJ, Neck and Back Pain, and Whiplash Injury.

We typically incorporate chiropractic adjustments and other soft tissue therapies such as ART and Graston Technique into the mix. We also use Deep Tissue Laser as a stand alone treatment as well.

How many Deep Tissue Laser Therapy sessions does it take to heal an injury?

Depending on the nature and severity of the injury and the body part/s involved it can take anywhere from 5-20 sessions. This is determined at the time of the initial exam and intake.

How much does Deep Tissue Laser Therapy Costs?

It depends if it is a stand alone treatment and to what area of the body (larger areas require a longer treatment time) and how many treatment sites there are. In general, laser therapy is not expensive. We will make recommendations based on individual needs.

Is Deep Tissue Therapeutic Laser Therapy Painful?

No, not at all. What you feel is a gentle warmth…it is very safe and gentle.
