Laser / Anodyne Type Therapy

Laser/light or Anodyne-type Therapy uses light to diminish and eliminate a variety of symptoms associated with circulation issues. Some of the symptoms and complaints associated with circulation issues commonly include pain, loss of balance, and decreased sensation, all of which can greatly dimish the patient’s quality of life. During treatment, infrared light that is not visible to the human eye is applied to the effected area. The infrared light is able to penetrate 3-5 centimeters into the tissue releasing nitric oxide which causes vasodilation (relaxation of smooth muscle cells within vessel walls). Vasodilation increases blood flow to the area which decreases the patient’s pain and increases balance and sensation.


Common symptoms or complaints:

  • Poor circulation
  • Loss of balance
  • Increased pain
  • Decreased sensation
  • Diminished quality of life


How Laser/light Therapy works:

  • Infrared light penetrates tissue, creating a reaction causing vasodilation
  • Vasodilation increases blood flow which can decrease or eliminate symptoms
