Dr. Buck uses an infrared laser that encompasses four specific wavelengths of light known to affect certain targets within soft tissue. At the most refined level, Dr. Buck targets the Mitochondria which are intensely stimulated by infrared laser exposure. Dr. Buck’s laser has the power to penetrate upwards of 10-12cm into the body giving us access to the key areas we treat in the head and neck region.
We all have trillions of Mitochondria, and they are the source of all life energy, sort of the battery packs for cells to live and thrive. The laser can reach Mitochondria within the cells. Increased Mitochondrial activity is vital to healing any damaged tissue, as it increases energy available for all functions related to regeneration. Also, the wavelengths that are used are known to increase micro-circulation within tissues. In addition, the laser stimulates increased immune function. The net effect is profound, including reduction in pain and eradication of trigger points within muscles along with rapidly increased total healing of chronically inflamed and damaged soft tissues including ligaments; tendons; muscles; fascia; bone; cartilage; vasculature; nerves; lymphatics.
