SANTA MONICA, Calif., Nov. 08, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Thanks to its brand new portable laser machine, Joga Chiropractic Center is now able to offer a home therapy option for those who suffer with certain disorders such as plantar fasciitis, tendinitis and carpal tunnel syndrome. "Treatments usually take up to 15 minutes each on a daily basis for one to two weeks," says Dr. Viktorija Joga. "The portable laser machine makes certain treatments much more convenient for our patients. Not having to come to the clinic every day saves them time and energy as well." Joga Chiropractic Center also has two additional lasers in the office for patient therapy.
One of the chiropractic center's light therapy devices called Tri-Wave has been cleared by the FDA for increasing local circulation, reducing muscle spasms and relieving pain. Many chiropractors as well as physical therapists and other health professionals say that adding light therapy to routine types of treatment can help decrease pain and increase function. Another device, the Solaris 709, can be used to alleviate pain on most any part of the body including the elbows, knees, back and neck. The portable device can even be used on the jaw to help decrease pain caused by TMJ.
Light therapy is often used to treat soft-tissue injuries and inflammatory conditions along with arthritis. Besides reducing pain and reversing inflammation, light therapy is effective for wound care including the treatment of burns and pressure sores. Along with the portable laser machines, Joga Chiropractic Clinic uses the cutting-edge method of laser therapy onsite at the clinic. The therapy is used to help patients who are injured or those who need internal healing and relief from pain.
"Light therapy is relatively safe to use," says Dr. Viktorija Joga. "There are some who should take precautions, such as pregnant women. The portable laser machine also should not be used over cancerous tissue. It is very effective, however, when it comes to treating pain and is much safer and has less side effects than many prescription drugs and other types of pain relievers."
Laser light therapy works by applying photons to the tissue of the body. These photons get absorbed by the chromophores in the cell membrane. The absorbed energy gets converted to adenosine triphosphate (ATP) leading to increased DNA and RNA synthesis, mitosis and cell production. All of these processes are important when it comes to tissue repair, pain control and increased circulation.
Joga Chiropractic Center specializes in treating neck and back pain but also offers many other services to help patients heal naturally. Some of these include core training and fitness, acupuncture and massage therapy.
