Laser Therapy at Onyx Wellness

Imagine the surprise when researchers learned that certain light frequencies could actually reduce inflammation and enhance the healing process!

Red bursts of light

Related to the lasers used in scanners, this light energy can have positive effects on the body.

When patients learn that we use laser therapy in our practice, they have visions of a powerful, steel-cutting beam of light. However, the  laser we use has only a tiny fraction of the power and is designed to emit a certain wavelength of light that dramatically hastens the healing process.

Specific Wavelengths

Instead of the full spectrum of light that comes from the sun, our laser produces light in a narrow frequency. Frequencies from the infrared portion are shown to assist and accelerate the healing of soft tissues. Apparently, cells of our body have receptors that are sensitive to light. In a similar fashion to the way a plant uses light for photosynthesis, the cells of our body use it to produce energy and thereby increase metabolism and the tissue healing process.

How Does It Work?

How can certain frequencies of light speed up or slow down biological processes? Many theories have been suggested, but from practical application with real patients, we know it works for:

  • Wound healing
  • Inflammation reduction
  • Pain management
  • Cell regeneration
  • Scar tissue reduction

While scientists debate the mechanism by which laser works and publish their work in the scientific literature, our patients are just delighted that it works!

Choosing Diowave

Although there are many manufacturers of therapeutic lasers, we chose a Class IV High Power 30 Watt Laser from Diowave. The Diowave 30 watt Laser System is the most powerful laser available in the medical marketplace today. For more information, please visit their website:
