OLD BRIDGE, N.J., July 15, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Old Bridge Spine
and Wellness Center announced that the practice has added deep tissue
laser therapy to their service offerings. According to chiropractor Dr.
Peter Bufano, deep tissue laser therapy stimulates internal healing and
improves recovery. The Center uses the Class IV LiteCure laser to
penetrate deep into injured muscle tissues to promote healing and
relieve chronic pain. The practice recommends laser therapy for
patients with sprains and strains, sports injuries, plantar fasciitis,
chronic back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, post-op, ligament injuries,
arthritic pain and other types of inflammatory conditions.
Chiropractor Dr. Bufano said the Class IV LiteCure deep tissue laser
has proven very effective in promoting healing and relieving pain for
her patients. Additionally, this type of therapy is used as an
alternative to medicines, injections, and surgery.
"Class IV laser therapy is extremely effective for treating chronic
pain and injury," said Physical Therapist Dr. Daniel Neissany. "By
penetrating deep below the skin's surface, the laser is able to reduce
inflammation and pain. We often use this advanced therapy for Old
Bridge pain management patients."
Laser therapy works by stimulating internal healing on the cellular
level. During a treatment, light penetrates six to eight inches below
the skin's surface. Energy from the laser promotes the production of
cellular ATP (Adenosine Tri-Phosphate), a chemical necessary for cells
to repair damage.
According to Dr. Bufano and Dr Neissany, increased production of ATP
means that damaged tissue heals faster. Patients with sprains or
strains may recover three to five times faster with laser therapy.
"Think of ATP as a 'fuel' that cells need to heal," said Dr. Bufano.
"Laser therapy brings this fuel source straight to the cells. After ten
short treatment sessions, our patients are able to return to their
normal, active lifestyle. Also, laser therapy is a safe and effective
alternative to surgery."
The treatment also relieves chronic pain by reducing inflammation. The
chiropractors recommend laser therapy as an alternative form of pain
management for chronic back pain and neck pain.
The Class IV LiteCure laser is used by professional sports teams,
including the New York Yankees, New Jersey Nets, Philadelphia Phillies,
Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Celtics. The U.S Olympic Teams also use
