Relieving Pain with Soft Tissue Laser Therapy in Naples
As a chiropractor, Dr. Wills can use soft tissue laser therapy in Naples to treat a number of conditions. The treatment is often effective in reducing pain and inflammation and can enhance both hard and soft tissue healing such as bones, muscles and ligaments. During soft tissue laser therapy, the oxygen level of tissue is elevated thereby allowing injured or damaged cells to absorb the photons of light from the laser. This in turn accelerates healing.
Laser therapy can be helpful for:
- Acute injuries, such as sprains, strains and shoulder injuries
- Repetitive use injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome
- Traumatic injuries
- Chronic conditions such as a frozen shoulder or arthritis

How Does the Class IV K-Laser Work?
This technology delivers specific wavelengths of laser light to the patient that induces a photochemical reaction, resulting in therapeutic improvements, including increased circulation and an optimized healing environment. The benefits include the following:
- Deep penetration of cells by the K-Laser increases the amount of energy the cells have access to, thereby allowing to absorb nutrients faster and repair more quickly
- Greater production of collagen encourages tissues to regenerate
- Blood vessels increase in diameter, which can help reduce any possible swelling during treatment
- The formation of noticeable scar tissue is reduced
- Only mild tingling and temporary increased skin sensitivity are experienced during treatment
- K-Laser therapy produces neurochemicals that block pain signals from reaching the nerves
- The treatment process is quick, and can usually be completed in just a few minutes depending on the size of the area that Dr. Wills, your chiropractor in Naples, is treating
