Laser

Laser Light Therapy is one of the most researched and published modalities in physical rehabilitation, demonstrating multitude of clinical benefits.

How does it work?

During a treatment the laser diode is placed on the skin allowing the photon energy to penetrate the skin, where it is absorbed by the light sensitive structures of the cell. This energy is then converted into bio-chemical energy to be used by the body to speed up cellular metabolism, enhance and speed tissue healing time.

Some of the unique healing effects of Phototherapy include:

  • Increased cell metabolism
  • Improved localized blood circulation
  • Development of collagen and muscle tissue
  • Relief from acute and chronic pain
  • Reduced localized inflammation and edema
  • Stimulation for wound healing and tissue repair
  • Stimulation of the immune system
  • Stimulation of nerve function

Conditions That Can Benefit from Phototherapy Treatment

Research demonstrates that phototherapy can be used to effectively treat many conditions. Simulating the body's natural repair processes’ using the healing nature of light has been proven effective for conditions including:

  • Arthritis/rheumatism
  • Tendonitis, tennis and golfer's elbow
  • Repetitive Stress Injuries (i.e. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome)
  • Neck and Lower back pain
  • Soft Tissue Injuries
  • Strains and Sprains
  • Sports injuries

Other Effects

  • Stimulation of the immune response
  • Improved lymphatic drainage
  • Change in histamine response
  • Increased production of growth hormone
  • Relief of symptoms due to the stimulation of the healing process
