Cumberland Chiropractic and Sports Medicine is dedicated to providing patients with results. For this reason we have invested in the Class IV tissue healing laser from LiteCure. Laser therapy is safe, painless, and scientifically proven to decrease pain and improve healing.

Therapeutic Laser, or “photobiostimulation,” is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to create therapeutic effects in living tissue.

Tissue healing laser therapy works in two ways:

1. The skin will feel a soothing, warm sensation as circulation is dramatically increased and water at the skin’s surface is excited by the specific wavelength of directed light. This creates an optimal healing and flushing environment for the injured area.

2. Cellularly, the laser light interacts with blood cells and tissue cells deep to the skin where the injury lives.  Specifically, the powerhouse of the cell (mitochondria) is stimulated and the production of cellular energy (ATP) goes way up. This leads to a cascade of beneficial effects, which the body sees as increased cellular function and health. Simply put, laser increases circulation and ATP; the more circulation and ATP available the more the body can do its job of healing.

Professional sports teams across the country and Cumberland Chiropractic and Sports Medicine uses LiteCure’s deep tissue laser along with ART, FAKTR, and the latest in rehabilitation exercises to provide the best results available anywhere.
