About Laser Therapy

Laser therapy treatment helps reduce pain and inflammation and enhances tissue healing—both in hard and soft tissues, including muscles, ligaments, and even bones.

It increases oxygenation of tissues and allows injured or damaged cells to absorb photons of light, which speeds healing. Laser therapy can be effectively combined with a number of other treatment modalities like massage therapy, trigger point therapy and postural alignment.

Laser therapy can be helpful for acute injuries, such as strains, sprains, and shoulder injuries; repetitive-use injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome; traumatic injuries, and chronic issues, such as frozen shoulder and arthritis.

Biological Effects of Laser Therapy:

1. Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth

Photons of light from lasers penetrate deeply into your tissue and speed up cell growth and repair. The cell can take in nutrients faster and eliminate waste products faster.

2. Faster Wound Healing

Laser light stimulates fibroblast development in wound healing (fibroblasts are the building blocks of collagen, which is most important in wound healing). Laser Therapy is effective on open wounds, scars and burns.

3. Reduced Scar Tissue

Reduces the formation of scar tissue after tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns or surgery. Scar tissue if the primary source of chronic pain!

4. Anti-Inflammation.

Laser light has an anti-swelling effect because it causes the blood vessels to widen (vasodilation) and also it activates the lymphatic drainage system (drains swollen areas). As a result, there is a reduction in swelling caused by bruising or inflammation.

5. Anti-Pain (Analgesic)

Laser Therapy has a beneficial effect on nerve cells that block pain sensations to the brain. Along with less inflammation there is less pain.

6. Improved Vascular Activity

Laser light will form new capillaries in damaged tissue. This will speed up your healing process.

7. Improved Nerve Function

Slow nerve recovery following an injury can result in numbness and impaired limbs. Laser light will speed up the process of nerve cell growth and reduce nerve pain

8. Trigger Points

Laser Therapy stimulates muscle trigger points (KNOTS) resulting in muscle pain relief.
