There are two types of medical lasers: high power and low power. We use low-level lasers, also known as cold lasers or soft lasers, to promote healing and pain relief. Low-level lasers send cold light through skin layers to soft tissue to stimulate blood flow and cell metabolism. The laser light directs biostimulative energy to the body’s injured cells in a specific location where the cells transform this energy into chemical energy promoting natural healing and pain relief through tissue repair.
Benefits of Laser Therapy:
Relieves acute and chronic pain
Increases speed and quality of soft tissue repair
Increases blood supply
Stimulates immune function
Stimulates nerve function
Stimulates generation of new and healthy tissue
Promotes faster wound healing and clot formation
Laser therapy offers a safe and effective treatment for a wide variety of conditions:
Chronic wounds including decubitus ulcers (pressure sores), diabetic wounds, varicose wounds. Also, slow healing surgical wounds and burns.
Soft tissue injuries including traumatic, inflammatory and overuse. Such as:
Sprains and Strains
Tendonitis and Other Tendinopathies
Pain Relief, Including Both Acute Pain (e.g., Post-operative) and More Chronic Pain Syndromes (e.g., Neuralgia).
Arthritic Conditions, Including Both Rheumatoid and Osteoarthritis.
