What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses specific wavelengths to gently pass through the skin without discomfort or breaking the skin. The laser uses infrared light to treat areas of injury for acute or chronic pain, as well as wounds and lesions. Laser therapy uses Low-intensity light therapy (L.I.L.T) for medical and rehabilitation treatments, not to be confused with a high-intensity light laser which is used for laser surgery. This method of treatment has very successful means across a large span of treatment practices.
Conditions treated by Laser Therapy?
Musculoskeletal injuries, tendinitis, degeneration
Swelling and inflammation
Wounds, lesions, scars
How does it work?
Laser light that differs in wavelengths and duration deliver energy directly to injured tissue cells. Treatment is not harmful however some patients do feel warmth sensation during therapy with the red light treatment head.
Benefits of Laser Therapy?
Increased circulation to an area of injury
Reduce therapy time
Reduction in swelling, bruising and inflammation
Treatments typically last between 2-10 mins depending on condition and size of the area that is being treated. Patients receive anywhere from 3-25 sessions depending on condition, severity, and chronicity of the injury. Treatment is non-invasive, non-toxic, and non-thermal. Patients normally will start to feel better after 3 to 5 treatments.
The pain was reduced by approximately 50% after laser treatment in chronic joint pain patients (Australian Journal of Physiotherapy, 2003).
52/55 Patients with myofascial pain syndrome reported pain relief after 4 weeks of therapy (Clinical Journal of Pain, 2010).
