High Powered Laser Therapy

Charny Healing Center administers High Power Laser Therapy with a 60 watt class IV therapy laser, one of the most technologically advanced and powerful class lV lasers available today.

High Power Laser Therapy is the non-invasive use of laser energy to generate a photochemical response in damaged or dysfunctional tissue. Cellular Effects of Laser Therapy occur when photons of therapeutic laser light interact with cells. Higher ATP levels are produced, cell membrane permeability is increased, and blood and lymphatic vessels are vasodilated. These events then lead to a cascade of beneficial effects increasing cellular energy and health.

During each treatment, laser energy increases circulation drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area.  This creates an improved healing environment that reduces inflammation, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. The procedure takes 3-15 min on average and is consistent with my therapeutic goals of healing. Most patients reported feeling warmth and relaxation during treatment.

The following conditions can greatly benefit from high power laser therapy:

  • Acute and chronic pain

  • Sports injuries, bruising and edema

  • Back and neck pain, TMJ

  • Bulging, herniated or slipped discs

  • Muscle, tendon and ligament strains and spasms

  • Costochondritis

  • Myofascial pain and fibromyalgia

  • Knee and hip pain

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

  • Epicondylitis (tennis elbow)

  • Frozen shoulder, tendinitis and bursitis

  • Arthritic pain, inflammation and swelling

  • Headaches and migraines

  • Post surgical recovery

  • Most joint, muscle, circulatory and inflammatory conditions

I came to Dr. Charny after my dentist said I showed signs of receding gums and loss of bone mass. The pain in my jaw extended down to my neck. After only 2 cranial and laser treatments  with Dr. Charny, the pain began to diminish. After 1 month of weekly  treatments, the pain was gone. I went back to my dentist and after an exam and x-rays she reported that my gums and bone were healing. We both were excited with my progress

I cut my hand on a piece of metal and had a very  deep and painful  gash. I was worried about infection and scarring. After one laser treatment, the difference was phenomenal!!! The size of the gash was reduced by half and the wound was healing faster than expected. I could see the changes in front of my eyes as the laser was doing it's magic. After the follow up laser treatment, the cut was nearly healed with no trace of scarring.
