Experience Powerful Pain Relief With Class IV Laser Therapy
Conventional treatments for chronic pain are often ineffective, because they usually don’t do anything to enhance the body’s healing process. The focus is often on managing the symptoms, without impacting the actual cause of the condition (in some cases, it may actually make it worse). Pharmaceutical drugs may relieve pain in one area, only to create new problems in another area due to the unpredictable nature of side effects. Surgery is an extreme option with no guarantee of improvement, and requires significant downtime for recovery. Fortunately, there is now a non-invasive, drug free alternative that is medically proven to relieve chronic pain and boost your body’s natural ability to heal.
At Texas Spine & Sports Therapy Center, we specialize in holistic physical medicine, which focuses on helping your body heal and regenerate naturally with corrective medical treatment. We provide DIOWAVE Class IV Laser Therapy, which is an innovative and powerful treatment that penetrates the injured or affected tissue, resulting in faster healing and natural pain relief.

How Does DIOWAVE Laser Therapy Work?
The DIOWAVE Laser Therapy works by harnessing the natural phenomenon of photobiostimulation, which is how our cells naturally respond to waves of light. DIOWAVE delivers a concentrated dose of light at a specific wave length and frequency, which triggers your body’s cells to produce more ATP (Adenosine Tri-Phosphate), the substance responsible for cellular energy production. This generates a cascade of positive cellular effects, including improved blood circulation, heightened DNA/RNA activity, intensified collagen production, diminished inflammation, optimized cellular regeneration, and accelerated healing.
To prepare you for treatment, you and the physician will wear protective eye gear to shield your eyes. The DIOWAVE laser is then applied to the affected area of your body. There is no pain involved with this procedure; most patients generally report warm and soothing sensations in the treated area, much like a gentle massage. Other positive sensations during the procedure include decreased muscle tension and cramping, diminished inflammation, and better range of motion. There are also no known side effects, no extended convalescence/downtime, and no documented allergic reactions. Completely safe and impressively effective, laser therapy is an ideal treatment for patients who want to avoid the risk of surgery or drug induced side effects.
DIOWAVE laser therapy is a fast procedure, lasting an average of 5 to 10 minutes per office visit. Most patients experience positive results almost immediately. Though most chronic conditions require 5 to 6 visits for complete recovery, some patients may need more treatments depending on their natural capacity for healing and the severity of their condition.
