Laser Therapy works to increase the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair and to improve wound and soft tissue healing, reduce inflammation and give relief for both acute and chronic pain.
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is the application of red and near infra-red light over injuries or lesions. First developed in 1967, it is now commonly referred to as LLLT.
The intensity of LLLT lasers and LED’s is not high like a surgical laser. There is no heating effect. The effects of LLLT are photochemical (like photosynthesis in plants). When the correct intensity and treatment times are used, red and near infrared light reduces oxidative stress and increases the production of ATP. This improves cell metabolism and reduces inflammation.
Laser Therapy works best when combined with other treatments such as chiropractic and physiotherapy, massage therapy, IMS/Dry Needling, ART, Graston and an active exercise program.
