Peak Performance Plus LaserMD Therapy Program
The Peak Performance Plus LaserMD Therapy Program is a PAIN FREE FDA Approved Class IV Therapeutic Laser Treatment. This Treatment is ideal for treating both acute and chronic pain. On average, acute injuries will resolve in 4-6 treatments performed over 4-10 days. While most chronic pain will dramatically improve in 6-12 treatments over 2-4 weeks.
Though Laser Pain Therapy is a somewhat new modality, the science behind it is not. There have been more than 2,500 research reports published, and more than 100 double-blind positive studies that confirm the clinical effect of laser pain therapy. In simple English, damaged human cells respond to light, and healing occurs at the cellular level. The photons of light from our exclusive LaserMD laser penetrate the cells and give them the nutrients and energy needed to promote healing. The laser treatments also reduce inflammation and increase blood flow, allowing for quicker healing and a significant reduction in pain.
LEAD A PAIN FREE LIFE WITHOUT HAVING TO DEPEND UPON COSTLY MEDICATIONS
How Does It Work?
Basically, three things happen during Laser treatment. First, infrared laser therapy treatment helps reduce pain, reduce inflammation, and enhance tissue healing—both in hard and soft tissues, including muscles, ligaments, or even bones.
But it’s not just the arterial blood supply to the area; we are enhancing the venous and the lymphatic return from the area, as well as increasing the oxygenation of those tissues. We are stimulating the hemoglobin molecule to dump off oxygen at the treatment site.
Finally, the treatment stimulates the cytochrome oxidase enzyme in the cells’ mitochondria. This is really one of the key discoveries in the whole science of laser therapy. Specifically, injured cells are targeted because damaged cells are more readily accepting of photons of light, whereas healthy cells don’t need this extra energy.
Now, lasers are also used in other areas of medicine, specifically in surgical interventions where they’re used for cutting, removing tattoos, and a lot of other dermatological applications. But the class 4 Therapeutic Laser does not do that. Our Therapeutic Laser can produce up to 15 watts of power, and the laser light is allowed to diffuse to a spot size about that of a quarter, whereas ablative lasers, the ones used for surgical cutting, are closer to 100 watts, and the laser light is focused to a tiny spot size.
Wavelength is the measurement of the light energy. It is a crucial component in the effectiveness of the laser treatment. Wavelength determines which cells will absorb the laser energy. The infrared wavelengths used in the Therapeutic Laser allow for targeting specific areas of the body.
- 830 nanometers penetrates the deepest, and is at a peak of absorption for the cytochrome oxidase enzyme
- 980 nanometers most efficiently stimulates microcirculation in the tissues
How long does the treatment take?
The typical course of treatment is 10 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. Acute conditions may be treated daily, particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain. More chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2 to 3 times a week. Treatment plans are determined on an individual basis.
How many treatments does it take?
This depends on the nature of the condition being treated. For some acute conditions, 2 to 6 treatments may be sufficient. More chronic conditions may need more sessions.
How long before results are felt?
You may feel an improvement in your condition after the very first treatment. Each treatment is cumulative and results are often felt after 2 to 4 sessions.
Are the results long lasting?
Therapeutic Laser Therapy is about healing. It’s not about masking or covering up a condition. When you feel better from this therapy…it’s because you are better. Therefore results have been found to be quite long lasting.
