Low Intensity Laser Therapy

 

Laser is a therapeutic treatment modality used to reduce inflammation and pain and enhance the body's natural healing processes.

Laser is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.

It uses a monochromatic light emission from the laser device (diode). It is extremely safe and effective and can be used to treat a number of musculoskeletal conditions including:

  • Sprains and Strains

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Myofascial Trigger Points

  • Tendonitis

  • Bursitis

  • Neuralgias

  • Problematic Scarring

  • Temperomandibular Syndrome/Dysfunction ( TMJ )

Laser works as the light energy of the laser is converted to biochemical energy and this has the following physiological effects:

  • Accelerates cellular reproduction and growth.

  • Stimulates fibroblast development and therefore faster wound healing.

  • Reduces the formation of scar tissue.

  • Reduces inflammation and swelling.

  • Stimulated nerve function.

There is no extra fee for Laser treatment.

Please consult your physiotherapist if wonder if Laser can be of benefit to you.
