How It Works?
Laser Therapy is non-invasive and highly effective modality. Laser Therapy is increasingly becoming popular to treat pain, accelerate healing and decrease inflammation. It is successfully used to treat a broad range of conditions, including sports injuries, arthritis and post-surgical wounds.
Simply put, a light source is placed against the skin. The photons in the light penetrate several centimeters and get absorbed by the energy producing part of the cell called the mitochondria. This energy in turn fuels many positive physiological responses resulting in the restoration of normal cell functions.
The primary role of laser therapy is to enhance the rate at which the cell performs its regular functions. Unlike many treatments that only address the symptoms of diseases, Laser Therapy treats the underlying condition to promote healing. This means that Laser Therapy treatments will be effective and the benefits will be long lasting.
The Benefits of Laser Therapy
Reduces Chronic Pain
Laser Therapy can help relieve chronic pain and enable you to live your best life. The treatment continues to help countless patients with injuries or chronic pain conditions.
Speed Up Tissue Repair and Cell Growth
Working at the cellular level to trigger your body’s natural healing response, Laser Therapy not only reduces inflammation, but also increases blood flow giving the cells the extra nutrients and energy to heal.
Enhance Nerve Function
A higher dose of laser therapy treatment helps improve nerve function so you can enjoy a better quality of life without pain or numbness.
Laser treatment helps you heal from an injury or surgery faster. It is non-invasive and doesn’t create scar tissue and has no side effects.
Reduces Scar Tissue
Laser therapy is able to increase blood flow around the site of an injury or surgical incision, so your cells get the energy and nutrients needed to start the healing process.
Regulate the Immune System
Inflammation is your immune system’s first response to injury and infection. Laser therapy has been shown to decrease chronic inflammation and swelling.
