For over 40 years, therapeutic laser treatments have been used in clinical practice all around the world to treat a variety of muscle, tendon, ligament, and joint coditions. These laser and LED light therapies have been known to aid in tissue healing at the cellular level by increasing cellular energy (ATP) and protein synthesis.
The Orthohealing Center is proud to be hosting Dr. Natasha Salansky, PhD, DAc at our clinic this week as we feature a new state-of-the-art treatment called “Regenerative Photonic Therapy”, or “RPT”. Dr. Norman Salansky, PhD and Dr. Natasha Salansky have spent over 25 years researching this phenomenon with research grants from the Canadian government. This non-surgical, non-invasive treatment is thought to have higher efficacy beyond therapeutic lasers for treating sports injuries and chronic pain.
RPT is based on the healing power of special forms of LED and laser light that is aimed to improve blood flow to injured tissue. Increase in blood flow helps regulate abnormal inflammation and has been used to reduce pain and inflammation in numerous conditions such as neck and back pain, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, and knee pain among others.
When used in combination with regenerative injection therapies such as Platelet Rich Plasma or Bone Marrow Concentrate injections, RPT can substantially accelerate recovery while reducing post-procedure inflammatory discomfort.
Best of all, the RPT procedure is comfortable, relaxing, and most of the time, results in immediate pain relief!
