About Laser Therapy

Many patients with musculoskeletal conditions look for a natural and non-invasive way to improve their healing. Sometimes just resting and exercise rehab can take months, however there is a way you can speed up the healing.

One method proven to help the recovery process is low level laser therapy (LLLT), otherwise known as photobiomodulation. LLLT is a non-invasive treatment which uses red and near-infrared light to reduce pain and inflammation and works to accelerate tissue repair and regeneration.

LLLT can be used to treat many conditions such as plantar fasciitis (heel pain), tendonitis, arthritis and neurological issues. It’s also used to help with post-operative healing and regeneration.

This treatment works by simulating a photochemical effect which promotes connective tissue cells as well as improving lymphatic drainage to assist with swelling. The laser also dilates the blood vessels in the area of application which works to increase blood flow and tissue repair. Additionally, the body’s nerve signals are regulated by the laser and this reduces pain levels. These mechanisms work together to boost the body’s natural healing process.

Low level laser therapy is highly effective for a wide range of conditions. When combined with the rest of your treatment plan, LLLT gives you the best chance to return to your normal activities safely and injury-free.

LLLT is non-invasive and safe. No harmful side effects associated with LLLT have been reported and the treatment is safe for all ages.

How the treatment works

Boosts Healing

Light emitted from the laser machine increases the energy in the injured cells. This speeds up the healing process.

Improves Pain

Your nerves control your pain signals. Low Level Laser Therapy regulates the nerves to improve your pain levels.

Reduces Inflammation

Nitric Oxide is harmful to the body’s cells. By displacing Nitric Oxide, Low Level Laser Therapy reduces inflammation.
