Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese practice of inserting needles into specific areas of the body to either stimulate or sedate energy flow known as Chi. HealthPointe Medical utilizes both needle and needleless technique for our patients comfort. The needle technique involves the use of stainless steel needles inserted gently into the body. Whereas the needeless technique requires no needle. Instead we use light stimulation with lasers and beads to active or sedate specific acupuncture points in a totally painless procedure. Our acupuncture treatments have been shown to help with various medical conditions such as headaches, neck pain, lower back pain and sinus problems as well as other issues.
Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions. The laser beam is moved over the skin so that the light energy (photons) penetrates the tissue where it interacts with various molecules (chromophores) that cause different biological effects. It produces a photochemical, photothermal and photomechanical effect. This reduces pain in the area and speeds recovery of the damaged cells. MLS Laser Therapy is a painless treatment that lasts an average of 8 minutes. You may experience a comfortable sensation at the point of application. Most people experience positive results within a few treatments. Swelling is greatly reduced and there is a rapid relief of pain. Acute conditions usually subside quickly, typically within one phase of treatments, while chronic conditions can be controlled with regular treatments. The effects of MLS Laser Therapy are cumulative; therefore, expect to see improvement as you proceed through your treatment plan. It is critical that once you start, you complete the course of treatments recommended by your doctor or symptoms are likely to reoccur.
