Aspen Laser Therapy in Homer
15 watt (980nm or 810nm)
Homer Family Chiropractor offers The Aspen laser; specifically designed to preform superior laser treatments.
How does it work?
When the photons of laser light penetrates the skin, they are absorbed by the cells and converted into energy. Energyg is key to helping the cells become normal and healthy. A cascade of cellular events are triggered once the cell membrane permeability is altered including:
- Stimulation of ATP
- Stimulation of respiratory chain
- Increased DNA and RNA synthesis
- Enhanced collagen synthesis
Advantages of Aspen Laser Treatment
No Side Effects!
Rapid/Painless Pain Relief:
The laser light increases blood flow to damaged areas and accelerates the body's natural repair. Unlike many therapy products that only treat symptoms and mask the pain temporarily, the laser goes to the source to help the body heal itself.
Trigger points & Acupuncture Points
Laser Therapy stimulates muscle trigger points and acupuncture points on a non invasive basis providing musculoskeletal pain relief.
The laser reduces swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints to give enhanced joint mobility and reduced pain.
Reduced Scar Tissue:
The laser reduces the formation of scar tissue following damage from cuts, scratches, acne, or burns and post-surgery.
Improved Nerve Function
Slow recovery of nerve functions in damaged tissues can result in numbness and impaired limbs. Laser light will speed up the process of axanal regeneration, nerve cell reconnection, and increase the amplitude of action potentials to optimize muscle action.
Some patients recieve relief, increased mobility, improved strength or other symptom relief from just the first treatment! While others may experience relief hours or days later, sometimes even after the 2nd or 3rd visit. The amount of pain or injury, the amount of time since the symptom began, and the cause of symptoms all affect the speed of recovery. There are no biochemical side effects blocking the body's response to the light therapy, laser therapy tends to produce faster and more progressive relief faster that other therapies.
What is Laser Therapy used for?
Laser Therapy treats many different things. It has beneficial effects for pain relief, resolving inflamation and increasing the speed, quality, and tensile strength to tissue repair. It has also been proved to inccrease the immune system, resolve infection and improve the function of damaged neurological tissue.

Does it really work?
Aspen Laser System is helping an increasing number of patients throughout the United States and even worldwide find drug free and even surgery free solutions for their health. Each patient receiving laser therapy treatments are unique, but their stories tend to have a lot in common: pain and injury that was dramatically improved and often resolved from the advanced technology of the Aspen Laser System. Thankfully they discovered the benefits and now enjoying a better life. Read their stories of success below.
“I tried laser therapy, which provided instant relief and no discomfort. I am an active senior and suffered a sports related injury several years ago. After initial recovery I was left with very severe tendonitis in my lower leg. I received little relief from traditional ice and massage therapies. I underwent non-traditional injection therapy which, after initial discomfort, provided significant relief. As I continued my sports activities, the tendonitis returned several months later, but repeating the injection therapy provided little relief. I then tried laser therapy, which provided instant relief and no discomfort. I was able to immediately continue my activities. Some months later the tendonitis returned and I repeated the laser treatment, with almost 100% immediate relief." - Gary D., Voorhees, NJ 08043
“The results – I would not have believed it, if I had not personally experienced it. I became deeply interested in near-infrared laser therapy when I read a study from Harvard that was published in 2009. I have suffered from Lyme disease and Babesiosis since 1980 manifesting as progressive, treatment-resistant major depression. I was not diagnosed with Lyme disease (100% specificity) and Babesiosis (100% specificity) until 2008, when I had already been infected for 28 years. I also have suffered a number of injuries that have resulted in significant pain and overall reduction in my life to function normally. In 2010, I began using a Class IV Therapy Laser with the intention of decreasing my use of numerous medications and relieving my constant pain and suffering each day. I did notice improvement and did not experience any adverse side effects. As you know, in 2016, I began using the Aspen Pinnacle 30-Watt Therapy Laser on a regular basis to treat many of my conditions. The results have been nothing short of miraculous. I would not have believed it, if I had not personally experienced it. I have been able to reduce my daily medications and injections. I am also now getting very significant antidepressant effects from your 30 watt laser. So significant that I was able exercise hard for 1.5 hours today, enjoying myself! i haven’t been able to do that in years! My life is changing for the better and none of this would have been possible without your deep kindness. You have truly given me another chance at life, and i am more grateful than i could ever express. Please let me know if there’s anything I can do that would be helpful for you. It is so rare to encounter people as caring as you on this part of the planet that I inhabit." - Anthony M. , Seattle, WA
Why does it work?
Unlike injections and prescriptions which just mask the
symptoms and do not treat the injury, High Intensity Laser Therapy delivers light energy units, in the form of photons, to damaged cells. These photons, absorbed by the cell through laser therapy stimulate the mitochondria to accelerate the production Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). This biochemical in the cell energy is used to help transform cells from a state of illness to a stable, healthy state. The result is it reduces inflamation, increases blood flow, stimulates tissue growth, and helps aid the body's own healing process.
