Laser Therapy

Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a type of light therapy that uses low-power infrared radiation to stimulate tissue growth and repair. It works by stimulating collagen production, increasing circulation, and improving cellular metabolism. LLLT is often used to treat sports injuries, arthritis, tendonitis, and joint pain. Some studies suggest that LLLT may also help reduce inflammation and promote faster recovery after injury.

Being painless and easy to perform, this (cold laser treatment) therapy is a safe and effective procedure when performed by a trained professional and qualified healthcare provider. Even though the procedure takes only minutes, you may require multiple treatments to achieve the desired results.

Laser therapy is becoming increasingly popular as a viable alternative to traditional methods of pain relief. Cold laser therapy refers specifically to laser therapy which utilizes low levels of light to heal the body. It is called “cold” due to the lack of heating effects on the body during treatment. This therapy is painless, non-invasive, and can be used to relieve many conditions and areas of the body, including skin, muscles and tendons, ligaments and joints, cartilage, nerves and even bones. Research has shown that laser therapy can be a potent anti-inflammatory, can promote blood flow, stimulate tissue growth, stimulate wound healing, reduce scarring, and improve overall health. It has also been found to be particularly effective for treating chronic pain.

Laser therapy may be used to treat:

  • Inflammation
  • Arthritis (Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid)
  • Sports injuries and ligament, muscle, or tendon strain
  • Stress injuries and repetitive strain injuries
  • Tendonitis(example: jumpers knee, shoulder rotator-cuff muscles, tennis elbow, golfer’s wrist)
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Chronic Pain/Fibromyalgia
  • Back pain (example: Neck and low back pain, disc herniation)
  • Bursitis (example: Pre-Patellar, Subacromial)
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Diabetes
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Contusion/Hematoma
  • Neural irritation
  • Skin conditions
  • Wound healing (trauma, post-surgical)
  • Scars (thick scar, keloid)
