by | Jan 20, 2023 | The Rubin Chiropractic Health Center Blog

Neck and back injuries are common sources of pain. If you don’t address these injuries promptly, they can eventually cause chronic, debilitating pain.

Laser therapy with the Apex Laser System from Aspen Laser is a non-invasive therapy that can help you overcome neck and back injuries. It’s the first and only laser of its class, providing a total output of 45 watts to alleviate pain and inflammation. 

How Does Laser Therapy Help With Neck and Back Pain?

Low-level laser therapy delivers bundles of light to the cells, through the skin. This boosts the cells’ intracellular energy, leading to cell and tissue regeneration. This process also boosts circulation while decreasing oxidative stress and inflammation. 

These effects can help alleviate pain, stiffness, and swelling from a range of neck and back injuries, including:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Muscle spasms
  • Arthritis
  • Connective tissue injuries
  • Bursitis
  • Herniated disc
  • Whiplash 

What Makes The Apex Laser System Different?

The Apex Laser from Aspen Laser remains at the forefront of laser therapy for pain and inflammation. It features a handpiece that delivers localized laser energy, allowing the provider to tailor the treatment to specific regions of the body. The system also features three wavelengths (810nm, 980 nm, and 1064nm) with each wavelength delivering 15 watts of high power for a total output of 45 watts.

With custom mobility and a range of safety features, the Apex Laser provides improved, dependable clinical results that simply can’t be achieved with other laser systems. Its ergonomic, user-friendly design with high-quality laser diode technology facilitates a higher quality of care for patients with neck and back pain.
