Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal. The effects of laser energy include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling.
The light is absorbed by your body’s cells and converted into energy. This action has a domino effect triggering the body to increase the uptake of endorphins, speed up collagen synthesis, and stimulate other healthy cellular activities.
Laser Therapy allows us to treat a variety of medical conditions effectively. Some of these include:
- Tennis elbow
- Plantar fasciitis
- Chronic sinus pain and pressure
- IT band syndrome
- Knee pain
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Pulled or strained muscles
- Sprained ankle
- Recovering from debilitating back or neck pain
Possibly the most significant benefit of laser therapy is its non-invasive nature. Laser therapy has been in use for over thirty years, is safe, pain-free, and can even be relaxing and enjoyable for some patients.
