Laser Therapy

What is Laser Therapy?

 Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission Radiation (LASER) is a true form of light which promotes stabilization of abnormal cellular activity. Photochemical responses in the tissue help to control pain and accelerate healing There is no sensation and the number of treatments required depends on the body’s natural healing rate and the affliction each treatment lasts approximately 1-2 minutes and there are no adverse side effects. Where applicable, Laser Therapy is the method of choice for this millennium.

Why Laser Therapy?

  • easy to apply
  • non invasive
  • painless
  • drug free
  • no harmful side effects

Benefits of Laser Therapy

  1. Rapid Cell Growth
    - laser light accelerates cellular reproduction and growth
  2. Faster Wound Healing
  3. Increased Metabolic Activity
  4. Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation
  5. Increased Vascular Activity
    - laser light will regenerate lymph vessels and veins to allow the affected tissue to achieve the best possible circulation.
  6. Anti-Inflammatory Action
    - laser light reduces swelling caused by bruising or inflammation and improves joint mobility.
  7. Stimulated Nerve Function
    - Slow recovery of nerve function in damaged tissue can result in “dead” limbs or numb areas. Laser light will speed the process of nerve cell reconnection to bring numb areas back to life. Laser light also increases the amplitude of action potentials to optimize muscle action.
