Low Level Laser therapy and PL5000

Cavallo Chiropractic is please to be able to offer this amazing piece of technology. Here are somy of the questions that our patients have been asking. What is low-level laser? Unlike high power lasers that use heat and destroy tissue, low energy lasers affect the cellular energy of the underlying tissue. Hot lasers have a thermal effect and have an output of 1MW or above. Cold (or) Low Level Lasers do not have a thermal effect on tissue, lasers that stimulate biological function have an output below 10mw- milliwatts (ten- one thousands of a watt). What is 3LT™ – Low Level Laser Therapy? Low Level Laser Therapy (3LT™) refers to the modality of applying a “low” energy or “low level” laser to tissue that stimulates cellular processes and thereby enhancing biochemical reactions. For example, studies show that LLLT increases ATP production in the mitochondria of the cell. Since more energy is now available, the cell may utilize this fuel to function or operate more efficiently. How does it work? Many theories exist as to the mechanism of action for Low Level Laser Therapy(3LT™) but simply put, photonic energy is absorbed by the photo acceptor sites on the cell membrane which.

Back Pack Safety

I hate to bearer of bad news kids(maybe good news for parents), but it’s almost time to go back to school. It is this time of year that school supplies will be purchased. One of the most important back to school supplies is a backpack. Statistics say more than 40 million students carry backpacks. overloading and poor positioning of back packs is a leading cause of back and shoulder pain in children. According to the American Chiropractic Association, the following steps can help: Make sure your child’s backpack weighs no more than 5 to 10 percent of his or her body weight. A heavier backpack will cause your child to bend forward in an attempt to support the weight on his or her back, rather than on the shoulders, by the straps. The backpack should never hang more than four inches below the waistline. A backpack that hangs too low increases the weight on the shoulders, causing your child to lean forward when walking. A backpack with individualized compartments helps in positioning the contents most effectively. Make sure that pointy or bulky objects are packed away from the area that will rest on your child’s back. Bigger is not necessarily.
