High Intensity Laser Therapy (HILT)

high intensity laser therapy treatment for pain management

Are you looking for high intensity laser therapy in Chico? High Intensity Laser Therapy is an FDA-cleared treatment option that is unique in its ability to deliver healing light energy to the cells of the body by penetrating through bone, soft tissue, and muscle. HILT can reduce pain, minimize swelling, soften scar tissue, and reset the chronic pain cycle – all while healing damaged tissues at the cellular level.

HILT has seen an 80% success rate at improving function and significantly decreasing symptoms.

Benefits of High Intensity Laser Therapy:

Relieves Pain – Increases production of the body’s natural pain-killing chemicals: endorphins and enkephalins.
Resets the Chronic Pain Cycle – Suppresses the nerve signals that transmit the sensation of pain to the brain.
Softens Scar Tissue – Softens existing scar tissue and reduces the formation of new scar tissue to help regain movement and mobility.
Minimizes Swelling – Provides anti-inflammatory effect after trauma, stress, overuse, or systemic conditions.
Speeds Tissue Repair and Cell Growth – Starts DNA and RNA repairs inside of cells. Cells of cartilage, bones, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and muscles heal faster when exposed to the laser light.
Improves Blood Flow – Increases blood flow, enabling the body to deliver more oxygen and other vital nutrients to speed the healing process in damaged tissue.
Improves Nerve Function – Accelerates nerve cell regeneration and improves the communication between the nerves and the brain.

Understanding High Intensity Laser Therapy

Some patients find it easier to understand laser therapy by comparing it to photosynthesis. In school, we learned that during photosynthesis plants convert light energy from the sun into chemical energy to fuel growth. In a similar manner, the body converts laser light energy into chemical energy to fuel cell growth and healing.
