Deep Tissue Laser Therapy
Deep Tissue Laser Therapy is a
revolutionary technology that helps decrease pain, without drugs or surgery. The Class 4 Laser in the Lightforce EX works through photobiomodulation. When damaged tissue is exposed to high
levels of laser energy, it absorbs this energy more than healthy tissue. This energy increases blood flow to the tissue, increases the metabolism in the tissue’s cells and provides the
optimal environment for your tissue to heal.
What does all this mean? You should see decreased pain after one treatment.
Treatments are fast, safe, painless and most patients experience results after only a few sessions. Deep Tissue Laser Therapy allows for deeper tissue penetration, resulting in fast, efficient and consistent results.
Deep Tissue Laser Therapy can be used on a variety of conditions such as plantar fasciitis, arthritis, muscle sprains, tendonitis, elbow and joint pain, sciatica, muscle spams, carpal tunnel, post surgery. Quite simply, if it hurts, laser therapy can help.

In continuing with our commitment to excellence in patient care and in bringing the most advanced therapies in the fields of rehabilitation and injury prevention to the community, Pure Health is pleased to introduce The Lightforce Ex 15W system, which is the same Deep Tissue Laser currently adopted by numerous NHL, NFL, MLB, NBA, Olympics and many other Division 1 athletic programs to help resolve pain, resolve inflammation and to significantly accelerate healing at the cellular level.
The LightForce Ex can deliver up to 15 Watts of deep, penetrating laser therapy through a unique and innovative Empower Delivery System™, which provides massage benefits in addition to the increasingly proven therapeutic results of the Class 4 laser. By mechanically manipulating soft tissue as laser light is being delivered, deeper structures are exposed to photonic energy, resulting in more rapid healing and improved pain relief through Photobiomodulation. Influence technology provides patient specific protocols based on individual characteristics, making the LightForce Ex an advanced, drug-free, pain-free, therapeutic laser system.
Tissue that is damaged and poorly oxygenated as a result of swelling, trauma, inflammation or during post-surgical recovery, has been shown to respond very well to laser therapy. At the cellular level, deep penetrating photons activate a biochemical cascade of events resulting in rapid cellular regeneration, normalization, and healing. Laser light energy is highly absorbed by the skin and other subcutaneous structures that are collectively called chromophores; therefore, penetration is key to making the therapy work.
Longer wavelengths and higher power outputs result in a deeper penetration of tissues and higher dosage to the tissue as well. In turn, this produces improved and more consistent clinical outcomes. The vast majority of lasers that are in use within rehabilitation clinics today are the lesser powered 0.5W Class 3B lasers. To put it into perspective, if a tissue requires a therapeutic dose of 6000 joules for effective healing to occur, it would take a Class 4 laser approximately 5-8 minutes to administer this dosage, whereby a Class 3B laser would take well over 120 minutes to achieve the same effect. Deeper structures become increasingly more difficult for Class 3B lasers to reach and even some structures considered more superficial might also be difficult to reach depending on a patient’s body mass composition.
What is Photobiomodulation and how does it help?
This is a biochemical effect at the cellular level that results from exposure of living tissue to various dosages of energy at varying wavelengths emitted from lasers. This process triggers a cascade of physiologic effects such as:
Analgesia (decrease in pain)
Acceleration in tissue repair and wound healing
Angiogenisis (increased circulation and capillary formation in damaged tissue)
Increased cellular metabolic activity
Reduction in scar tissue formation
Improved nerve function
Stimulation of immunoregulation
Stimulation of acupuncture points
