Dr. Allen is a certified Class IV Laser physician, and is the Director of Laser Therapeutics at Allen Chiropractic. Allen Chiropractic, Mission Viejo is equipped with one of the worlds most powerful and safe lasers to use for a variety of injuries and conditions. Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is currently one of the fastest ways to reduce pain and inflammation, and accelerate the body’s own ability to heal itself naturally. Laser energy has been researched for over 30 years, and has recently hit the market for pain relief. Many recent studies have been published to reveal how lasers interact with human tissue to reduce pain and inflammation, and actually accelerate the healing process. They work by accelerating cellular metabolism through a mechanism known as ‘photobiomodulation’. What this means is the normal healing rate of the cells in your skin, muscles, or tendons and ligaments, even in bone and cartilage can be accelerated so you can heal faster.
Dr. Allen was trained in LLLT under Dr. Bradley Frederick at the American Health and Performance Center in Los Angeles. During his time there he had the privilege of working with the Los Angeles Clippers and USC track and field athletes. Dr. Allen has experienced the benefit of laser therapy on his own share of sports injuries, including an acetabular labrum tear, and minor sprains and strains which heal 2-3x faster!
