High Intensity Laser Therapy (HILT) in Dallas
A New Kind of Treatment for Pain in Dallas
High Intensity Laser Therapy, or HILT, is an FDA-Cleared form of treatment that penetrates soft tissue, muscles, and bone using light energy. Its purpose is to energize the body’s cells to stimulate the healing process and relieve and manage chronic or temporary pain and reduce swelling.
HILT works by stimulating the metabolic process at a cellular level. Studies have shown that when tissues are exposed to certain wavelengths of light energy, enzymes will absorb that energy and use it to benefit the body. This will stimulate the production of ATP, which is a primary energy carrier that stimulates many cell processes. In other words, laser stimulation will help the body reduce inflammation and stimulate nerve regeneration, muscle relaxation, and the immune system.
Benefits of HILT include:
- Tissue repair and cell growth
- Swelling reduction
- Improved nerve function
- Pain relief
- Scar tissue repair
- Improved blood flow
What Can HILT Treat?
A common source of chronic pain is nerve damage. When nerve pain occurs, the nerves send the signals to interneurons which memorize and record the pain. It has been clinically shown that high intensity laser therapy goes deep into the interneurons to change pain memory, so that the pain sensation is suppressed.
But nerve pain is only one of many conditions that HILT can treat. You can benefit from this treatment if you are suffering from:
- Lower back pain
- Carpel tunnel syndrome
- Neck pain
- Peripheral Neuropathy
- Knee pain
- Bone and General Joint Pains
- Sports Injuries
If you are suffering from aches and pains of almost any sort, it is worth your time to explore HILT. This is a non-invasive, cost-effective treatment that can produce long-term results. Contact ReGen Medical Dallas today at (214) 855-7750 to schedule an appointment.
