Laser Therapy & UltraSound Therapy

Cold Laser Therapy

A safe therapy also known as Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), with its ability to reach up to 2 inches below skin surface, is used to treat a variety of conditions including pain, reduce inflammation, reduce swelling and speed up healing process.  When the light energy is delivered into the damaged cells, the healing (photobiomodulation) process begins.

Most report feeling nothing during the treatment, some will feel slight tingling sensation due to increased blood flow to the treated area.  The effect of therapy is cumulative, therefore adherence to course of therapy is important to achieve good results.  A single treatment may last from 5 - 20 minutes and a course of of treatment may range from 8 to 15 sessions.

A specific application of Cold Laser is acupuncture for those who are uncomfortable with needles.  It can stimulate the acupoints same way needles do but without piercing the skin.

Laser Ultrasound - Wai Acupuncture & Integrative Chinese Medicine in Longwood, Florida

UltraSound Therapy

Therapeutic ultrasound is a treatment modality used to provide deep heating to soft tissues in the body.  These tissues include muscles, tendons, joints, and ligaments.

Ultrasound waves help improve tissue extensibility and circulation, leading to increased mobility and, ultimately, decreased pain.  Ultrasound waves also create the effect of deep heat in your muscles and joints. The deep heat of ultrasound increases the blood flow to the area being treated. This blood brings nutrients and carries away waste.  The increase in local blood flow can be used to help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation, and, according to some studies, promote bone fracture healing. 

This modality available only within full service.
