Cold Laser Therapy has been clinically shown to increase mitochondria production in cells, helping to increase healthy cellular activity and decrease inflammation. When the cold laser is utilized as a transcranial (through the skull) therapy, we see an increase in brain activation to the targeted areas.
Instead of generating a thermal effect, LLLT acts by inducing a photochemical reaction in the cell, a process referred to as biostimulation or photobiomodulation. Photobiology works on the principle that, when the light hits certain molecules called chromophores, the photon energy causes electrons to be excited and jump from low-energy orbits to higher-energy orbits. In human bodies, this stored energy can be used by the system to perform various cellular tasks.
*Boosting Cellular Metabolism: Through the process of photobiomodulation, cold laser therapy can provide a significant boost to the energy efficiency and metabolism of cells. For many of our patients with neurological deficits, we can direct the cold lasers to the specific lobes of the brain or parts of the brain stem that are underfunctioning. This has been shown to increase neuronal activity and upregulate those areas of the neuraxis that have been damaged.
*Reducing Inflammation: The cascade of neuroinflammation that results from multiple head traumas is a major obstacle to healing. Cold laser therapy has been shown to reduce inflammation in the brain, as well as in the GI tract and joints. ... See MoreSee Less

Electrical stimulation therapy involves using mild electrical impulses to directly affect specific nerves, muscles, parts of the brain stem, and cortical regions of the brain. These electrical impulses are non-invasive and their uses are widespread in neurological and neuromuscular rehabilitation. Here at Revive, we utilize multiple different methods of e-stim to produce tremendous results for our patients.
In order for us to be able to move, speak, see, and function in our everyday lives, muscular activity is needed. Our body's control center, the brain, sends electrical impulses via the nervous system to the respective muscles. So, it is completely natural for our body to trigger muscular activity using electrical impulses. Here, the nerve pathways serve as carriers of the electrical signals, eventually ending in the motor nerves that help move appropriate muscles. After a stroke or TBI, this communication is often significantly diminished, resulting in lack of motor control, spasticity, dysmetria, and other movement deficits.
Using electrical stimulation, we evoke a process called neuromodulation, which can typically assist in restoring proper muscle activation and nerve function. Neuromodulation is defined as the alteration of nerve activity through targeted delivery of a stimulus, such as electrical stimulation or chemical agents, to specific neurological sites in the body. We mainly evoke neuromodulation through the use of electrical stimulation, which helps to improve the communication between the brain and muscles of the body. In addition, the electrical current has a particular influence on the cell membranes and has a positive effect on the cellular metabolism. The cells of the body are better supplied with blood, and consequently can absorb nutrients and oxygen in the best way possible to regenerate themselves. Accordingly, more muscle groups can be addressed, especially those we can only work out with difficulty when using conventional methods. The electrical current has a particular influence on the cell membranes and has a positive effect on the cellular metabolism. The cells of the body are better supplied with blood, and consequently can absorb nutrients and oxygen in the best way possible to regenerate themselves.
In addition to the many neuromuscular advantages of e-stim therapy, we also utilize stimulation to send input into various parts of the brain stem in order to evoke neurological changes. Typically through cranial nerve stimulation, we are able to upregulate areas of the brain stem and modulate sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.
The two main types of e-stim featured at Revive are Somatosensory Evoked Potential (SSEP) and the ReBuilder. For more information about how e-stim therapy can assist your neurological recovery, please visit our website. ... See MoreSee Less
