What is laser therapy?

Lasers aka “Light amplification by stimulated emissions of radiation”, is essentially technology that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to stimulate cellular tissues. It has been shown that the lasers help stimulate the mitochondria (the powerhouse of the cell). With more power in the cell, you can boost their function which means your body will heal quicker.

What are the benefits of laser therapy?

Lasers are one of the most effective therapeutic tools in conservative care and rehabilitation due to its superb abilities to:

  • promote tissue healing
  • reduce pain and inflammation
  • stimulate the nervous system
  • Promotes tissue healing of all kinds of tissues including

+ Bones

+ Tendons

+ Ligaments

+ Skin

+ nerves

Laser therapy for healing:

We use Laser therapy in both acute conditions such as an ankle sprain, as well as chronic conditions like low back pain and carpal tunnel syndrome.

In acute cases, when there is tissue damage, swelling, and pain in the body, laser therapy helps to decrease pain, improve circulation, and reduce inflammation. This promotes an exchange of nutrients and waste products in the body to help increase healing. Laser therapy increases the cellular processes in the body by stimulating

In cases of chronic conditions, surrounding cells can become dormant inhibiting their ability to function and produce energy. When a damaged part of your body is exposed to lasers, the light energy emitted penetrates the tissues and stimulates the energy producing part of the cell, the mitochondria. This causes an accelerated production of ATP in cells, which helps speed up the healing process and in some cases, stimulating growth of new tissues.

Recent research found that lasers are able to stimulate the growth of new peripheral nerve fibers in the body, which is beneficial for conditions that are caused by nerve damage such as: carpal tunnel syndrome, trigeminal neuralgia, sciatica, and common symptoms such as pain, tingling, and numbness.
