Laser Therapy or phototherapy is a non-invasive application of red and infrared light over soft tissue injuries, which helps to improve tissue healing. Laser therapy relieves chronic and acute pain as well as promotes wound healing. When the laser ( light source) is applied to the skin, photons (light energy) are absorbed by the tissue cells, producing an effect at a cellular level, which, in turn, optimizes the healing process.
Research has shown a whole host of physiological benefits including lymphatic drainage, improved immune system function, and improved cellular replication and healing. Laser therapy is recommended for repetitive stress injuries, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, and neck and back pain. It has been beneficial in inflammatory processes such as tendonitis, plantar fasciitis and rheumatoid arthritis. It has demonstrated positive results in wound healing, including dermal ulcers, diabetic ulcers and compression ulcers.
Laser Therapy is pain free, non-invasive, and has no known side effects. It’s been proven effective in more than 3,000 clinical studies published world wide.
