Seriously, what is it? A high-powered laser that uses red and near-infrared wavelengths of light to create therapeutic healing effects in the body. It is also called Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) because is does not heat up or burn the skin/tissue. It’s main mechanism of healing is by pulsating energy into an injured or damaged tissue to regenerate and accelerate the healing process.
Another very positive affect from Laser therapy is a reduction of inflammation (by increasing blood flow to an injured area) and will help with swelling and provide enhanced joint mobility. It will also produce higher outputs of specific enzymes to increase metabolic activity for a faster healing time.
Laser Therapy treats many conditions, and is especially effective with pain management. Laser Therapy accelerates wound/injury healing, decreases pain, inflammation, and scar tissue formation. When it comes to pain management, Laser Therapy provides dramatic results, is non-addictive and virtually free of side effects.
During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing oxygen, nutrients, and water to the damaged tissue. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces swelling, muscle spasms, inflammation, stiffness, and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.
Numerous research studies show that laser treatments can help with these conditions:
Work or Auto Related Injuries
Degenerative Joint Conditions
Diabetic Foot Ulcers
Chronic Non-Healing Wounds
